These adorable Valentine’s Day Cupid Arrow Pancake Kabobs would make the perfect Valentine breakfast. Whip up a few of these heart shaped pancakes and fruit kabobs in minutes.
You could let your older kids make their kabobs. I recommend supervising children seven years or younger, due to the pointed end of the wooden skewers.
I also think the Valentine’s Day Cupid Arrow Pancake Kabobs would make a great snack to enjoy any time of the year!
Pancake Recipe (taken from the Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook)
- 1 cup flour ( or white whole wheat flour)
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- whole strawberries washed with stems removed
- blueberries washed and dried
- clementines or mandarin oranges peeled and broken into segments
- bamboo skewers (mine were 8″ long)
- squeeze bottle (condiment container)
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the egg and milk. Stir until moistened. Stir a little bit more to remove additional lumps. Spoon or pour batter into condiment container.
On a hot, lightly greased skillet, draw heart pancakes using the batter in the condiment container. My heart pancakes are 2.5-3″ in size. Cook for 2 minutes on each side or until lightly brown. Let cool.
Thread two oranges slices, one strawberry, and blueberries onto a bamboo skewer.
Add pancake heart. Repeat until you have the desired number of pancake kabobs. Makes 12-15 kabobs. Kim’s note- Once you place your fruit and pancake onto the skewers, you could use scissors to remove the pointed ends. If you wanted, serve syrup for dipping the pancakes.
I think the kabobs turned out super cute! Don’t you? You could also omit the pancakes and make fruit kabobs. Hence, children love eating foods off sticks and it’s less messier. I hope you get to make a few of these Valentine’s Day Cupid Arrow Pancake Kabobs.
