These are fun pancakes for a family or holiday brunch!

Gavin (my 8 year old grandson) said, "I liked how pretty they were and how good they tasted."

This recipe makes a big batch of pancakes. We make the silver dollar size ones first and the big tie dye ones last.

We put the left over pancakes in zipper bags and either save for the next day or freeze them.
