  • Want pancakes that look like a teddy bear, cat or flower? Or how about giving someone a special heart-shaped pancake? Download one of our free pancake templates to get the perfect shapes.

    First make a batch of our basic pancake recipe. We found a slightly thicker pancake works better when cutting out shapes so replace the plain flour with self-raising and the milk with buttermilk to make a more American-style pancake.

    Allow the pancakes to cool slightly, while printing off your chosen template (simply click on the designs below to get the printable PDFs). Cut the template out and lay on the pancake. You can either slice around the edges with a knife or cut with scissors. 

    For the faces, you can either cut out the white spaces for the eyes, nose etc or you can use them as a guide to place fruit, chocolate, sweets or whatever you fancy to decorate them.
