Oh my goodness – can you believe it? Summer has finally arrived!
And with summer has come the rainbow of delicious fresh fruit that’s now in season. Those beautiful colors have a way of making my day, and I somehow always return home from the market with more fruit than I (ahem) was planning to buy.
But beautiful fruit is meant to be celebrated, especially at breakfast! So for a fun brunch idea this summer, why not have a Mini Rainbow Pancake Brunch
? It is so simple! Just make a batch of mini pancakes, top them with some yogurt and chopped fruit, and then drizzle with maple syrup. So easy, so tasty, and your friends and family will have a great time mixing and matching their own colorful creations.
Here’s the how to!
Begin with Bisquick pancake mix. Easy peasy.
Prepare the batter according to package instructions, then make mini pancakes using about 1 tablespoon of batter per pancake. Once they have finished cooking, set them aside under a foil tent to keep warm.
Meanwhile, go ahead and chop up a rainbow of your favorite fruit. I used fresh strawberries, mangoes, pineapple, kiwi and blueberries. Be sure to cut them into a pretty small dice so that they will fit easily on the mini pancakes.
Then set out your pancake brunch bar with all of the delicious ingredients – the cooked mini pancakes, rainbow of chopped fruit, your favorite Yoplait yogurts (I went with the honey and fruity kinds), and some maple syrup.
Then mix and match your favorite combinations to taste the rainbow!
Look at all of those gorgeous colors. Almost
too pretty to eat.
Don’t forget to drizzle some maple syrup on each one to complete the pancake magic. Gotta love some strawberries…
… and last but not least, fresh blueberries. Enjoy! Ali loves music and fun food! Check out her great stuff at her blog site, Gimme Some Oven, and her Tablespoon profile — and keep watching Tablespoon to see what colorful, nommy recipes she dreams up next!
