How can you possibly improve fried bread slathered in butter and syrup? Superheros, that's how. You may not be able to shoot webs from your hands or have an angst-filled romance with a beautiful actress, but with these three easy steps, you can be a hero to your kids. Or your grandma. Or whoever's sitting at your table with syrup at the ready.

This instructable will show you how to make Batman, Spiderman, and Superman pancakes. But you're a creative individual. Wih this technique in hand, you can make whatever pancake your little heart (or stomach) desires. You are Michelangelo. Here are some paints:

Step 1: Arm Yourself

Make your favorite pancake batter. Use your normal consistency, but err on the side of too runny rather than too thick.

Put some of the batter in some sort of squeezable container. It could be an old mustard bottle, a syringe, a plastic bag with a hole in it, an icing dispenser... anything that you can squeeze a fine line of pancake batter out of.  I found the plastic bag with a hole too difficult to work with, so I ended up using a mustard bottle.
<p>this is awesome!</p>
<p>Thanks for the Heads Up on the backward drawing, and being on honest! (I would have mirrored the Superman Pics in photoshop ;)</p>
Ha, I did consider it...
Cool idea! Thanks:)
Congratulations on your 1st prize win!
That is a great idea, I can't wait to have the grandson over again to try it.
Thanks, good luck! <br>
Cute idea. It looks as if it's kiddie approved too.
Yep, though for him, as long as it's bread it's approved ;)
That looks AWESOME
Thanks! <br>
I love these! Thanks for sharing!
No problem.
Wow, that is creative! :D
Thanks; my mom used to do these without the squirt bottle to make Mickey Mouse pancakes.
These are so cool! I swear, doing something like this makes the pancakes taste even better!
Ha yep; it does indeed.
My kids will LOVE this! I already use a bottle to squirt out this mix, so I'm halfway there. Thanks for the inspiration!
You're welcome, let me know how they turn out.
This is brilliant! I am so doing this next time I make pancakes. Most DEFINITELY a winner in the &quot;Play With Your Food&quot; contest!
Ha thanks! My mom used to do this to make Mickey Mouse pancakes.
Aw yiss... This is awesome!
never would have guessed. great job.
I am so doing this
I've also used cinnamon and sugar for drawing on the top side before flipping. It can produced the same patterns, but with a sweeter taste! Mickey mouse is a favorite, with cinnamon ears, eyes, and nose for kids.
I see Starfleet pancakes coming to my house in the near future.
these are cool... my brother in law does these... saw on some cooking show.
Backwards Superman S is for his nemesis Bizarro!
Too cool!
Love it!
