Introduction: Goofy Pancakes
First, find an image of Goofy on the Internet. Try to find something a 'compact' image - one that doesn't have a lot of thin areas. The next step is to mix up your favorite pancake batter. I used one made by Cracker Barrel. I find that the batter is thin enough to 'draw' with. Once the batter is mixed, pour some into a squeeze bottle. You'll need to do some tests to make sure the batter is not too thick because it will clog up the nozzle. Thin it out with milk - a little bit at a time. When you're ready to make your first pancake, just draw the outline of the image. Try to work fast to avoid thick blobs of batter. Once the outline is done, wait a minute or two to let that batter darken up. This step is important to achieve the details. Next, fill in the outline. Make sure every area is filled. Now the fun part - using a large spatula, loosen the pancake and then flip in one quick motion. If it doesn't flip well or falls apart, fix it quickly and mend any broken pieces with some batter. It takes a little bit of practice but you will get the hang of it quickly. And the kids love it!
