Farmyard Animal Pancakes

It’s Pancake Day on Tuesday and I think I may have gone a bit pancake crazy this year. I’ve made Traditional Pancakes, American Pancakes, American Style Lemon and Raisin Pancakes and ones that look like Mickey Mouse.

I honestly wasn’t planning on sharing another pancake recipe, but I thought these farm animals were too cute not to share.

As always the artwork is a little rusty, but hopefully it’ll give you a bit of inspiration to have a go at home.

These pancakes use the same tried and tested method that I always use.

  1. Make the pancake batter.
  2. Heat the pan until it’s really hot and then turn off the heat.
  3. Draw the outline/detail of your pancake.
  4. Turn the heat back on and cook until it’s brown.
  5. Turn the heat off and add the filling.
  6. Turn the heat back on and cook until bubbles are appearing.
  7. Flip and finish cooking.


For a more detailed version of these instructions and the pancake batter recipe have a quick look at my New Year Pancake.

As with Mickey Mouse, I’ve made a little video of the pig and rabbit pancakes to show what I did.

Have you ever had a go at pancake art? If you have I’d love to see you pictures. You can tweet me @Charlotte’s Lively KitchenUK.




  1. Wow this is great – I have tried a little bit of this sort of thing but it always cooks too quickly so I am going to try your method of turning off the heat while I draw! Looks like it might be time to get out the squeezy bottle!

    • I originally turned off the heat as my arm was turning a bad shade of red but I’ve found that it does give you a little more time to draw (and it’s much easier to draw if your arm isn’t burning!).

      I hope it works for you. If you give it a try I’d love to see a picture.
