Summery Watermelon Pancakes

These watermelon-shaped pancakes are a kitschy nod to a summer staple.

There are so many good things about summertime eating: the outdoors, grilling, picnics and…the produce! So much good summer fruit is to be had and watermelon is a star. And even though there is a lot of fresh bounty to be had in the summer, we can never forget about pancakes! These pancakes are a kitschy nod to the fresh summer favorite with a sprinkle of chocolate chips to boot. 

Lightly tinted batters are piped into watermelon rounds and sprinkled with chocolate chips to make a sweet interpretation of the summer picnic favorite. These watermelon-shaped pancakes are a fun way to mix up weekend breakfasts and using squeeze bottles make these easy and fun to make as a family.

Begin by mixing up a simple Bisquick batter.

Next, divide the batter and add some gel paste food color, and spoon the batters into separate squeeze bottles. Summer-Watermelon-Pancakes_02
Then, pipe pink batter for the watermelon centers and green batter for the rinds…and sprinkle with mini chips for the seeds! Summer-Watermelon-Pancakes_03
Once everything’s piped into cute little watermelons and topped with mini chocolate chips, cook each side until just golden and dry around the edges. Summer-Watermelon-Pancakes_04
Finally, plate them up and sprinkle with additional mini chocolate chips. Serve warm with lots of maple syrup!
