Rainbow Leprechaun Pancakes

Alternative to green eggs and ham for St Patty's breakfast? How about leprechaun sized pancakes? Make them rainbow colored for extra enjoyment!

Here is a quarter to give you perspective with how big, or small these little guys are.

Sadly, the purple ones got eaten before I could save them for the photo shoot :)

I didn't think about serving these little pancakes on the play dishes until it was too late. But that would have been fun too, though I really would have had to make them silver dollar sized. Serve with syrup and sprinkle some green sugar crystals on top for the final touch!

Grandma's Thin Pancakes:

My Grandma calls this recipe "Crepes" but they're not exactly crepes. They are similar to crepes but these are thicker. So we make them the size of pancakes (so smaller than crepes) but they turn out like really think pancakes (but thicker than crepes).

Add all ingredients, except flour, to a blender. Mix. Then gradually add flour.
2 cups milk
1 cup (or up to) water
4 eggs
2 Tbs oil
1 Tbs sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour

Pour in frying pan or griddle to desired size. Cook four a couple minutes until slightly browned. Flip. Cook until reverse side is slightly brown. Serve with syrup, powdered sugar, fruit, whatever! Eat like pancakes (not rolled up like crepes).
