Think you can only get vibrant blue with artificial coloring??
Our super fluffy and insanely blue pancakes include NO ARTIFICIAL COLORS!! We get our blue from butterfly pea powder, which is a powdered version of butterfly pea flowers! Think matcha, but instead of powdered green tea, we have powdered butterfly pea tea!
In a pancake recipe, it has no notable "tea" flavor, so all you get is a very fun way to mix up your pancake routine with color!
Now with this one, you have the option to make from scratch or to just add a big unmeasured scoop of blue powder to your favorite "just add water" pancake mix and it will come out just as well! Whether you decide to make the fast simple version or make from scratch, be sure to leave your batter slightly thicker to make sure your pancakes are fluffy enough to really show off that color!
These are so fun to make with the kids too, you can start by preparing the mixture for them, and then they can add the blue and stir it up watching the white and blue swirl into one oceanic batter!
We hope you enjoy this recipe and have a wonderful breakfast!
