VITARIUM - Gluten Free pancake mix

Thank you to Genevieve from HAYSTAC for sending me a few VITARIUM products, she actualy let me pick and one of them was a pancake mix.

I havent really used my wilton color pastes, and have always wanted to make rainbow pancakes after seeing this post. Very small dabs of icing were needed to yield these bright colors so i'm very impressed, i'll never go back to liquid food colouring :)







The pancake batter was a bit thick, so they were slow to spread on the pan, and also burned quickly before the pancake was completely cooked (that could be my lack of pancaking skills), but it did taste nice, not as fluffy as i thought they would be though.


I loved making these rainbow pancakes, one packet made 7 large pancakes.

haha that's so clever Betty! I made these too and they were pretty nice (but much less colourful :) )

They're so pretty! I love colourful things... =] Although if I were to make this, I think my kitchen would end up turning rainbow coloured too! haha....
I've never used food colouring pastes before- are they expensive??

That looks so pretty, lol! I think my kids are going to love these. I'll be trying these for sure. I have four kids, two boys (twins) and two girls. I bet the girls will be particularly interested with the pinks and yellows, :)
The boys? Well, they pretty much like anything, I think even if I make a black one, they'll still eat it, lol!

That is such a cool stack. If a cafe served them, they'd be so popular!

Hello rainbow pancakes! Lovely shot- a way to get kids to eat their brekky. Reminds me of making play dough pancakes when I was a kid!! :)

Shame it wasn't as fluffy! Such lovely colourful pancakes.. I want some right now!

Adrian @ Food Rehab said...

whoa! These would be a hit at a party! Although not as fluffy- hopefully the douse of maple syrup should did the trick.
