Canada Day Pancakes

Canada Day  = Maple Syrup

Maple Syrup = Pancakes

Canada Day = Patriotic Pancakes

Seems logical to me.

Canada Day Pancakes

** note you can prepare these pancakes by using your favourite store bought mix or, feel free to make them from scratch.  

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
red food colouring

maple syrup for serving

In large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
In separate bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, and vanilla.  Add to dry ingredients until just moistened.  
Divide batter into two bowls.  Add red food colouring to one of the batters and mix to incorporate.
Spoon batter in 1/4 cup portions onto lightly oiled griddle or pan.  Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbles form on top and underside is golden.  Flip and cook for 30 seconds - 1 minute longer.  Repeat with remaining batter.
Using a maple leaf shaped cookie cutter, cut out the centre of each pancake.  Swap white and red leaves and place on opposite coloured pancake.
Serve warm with syrup.
