Ingredients
  • Pancakes:
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • Pure flavor extracts
  • Gel food coloring
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted, plus more for serving
  • Syrup:
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup rum
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions

For the pancakes: Sift the flour and sugar together. Add the milk, vanilla and eggs and mix until smooth. Divide the batter into smaller bowls. For each bowl, you will need about 1 teaspoon of flavor extract and 4 to 5 drops of gel food coloring. I recommend using food coloring gel which is brighter (regular food coloring will also work; you will just need to use a bit more). You can match it to the desired flavor; for instance, yellow for banana, red for raspberry, etc.

Once you have flavored and colored your batter, it is time to cook the pancakes! Heat a nonstick frying pan or griddle, melt some butter and pour the batter to create pancake rounds. For silver dollar pancakes, use about 1 tablespoon per pancake (adjust for desired size). Repeat with ingredients.

For the syrup: In a medium pot over medium heat, combine the maple syrup, rum, cinnamon and vanilla. Heat until it comes to a boil, and then remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

Serve the pancakes warm with the syrup and extra butter if desired.
