Doraemon Pancakes
No Christmas theme bento for today. But I posted the pancake instead. I made the pancakes for the kids this morning using my other cute pancake pan, Doraemon. Yes, you read it right! I just couldn't resist to buy these cute pancake pan when I had a trip to Taiwan. I posted Donald Duck pancakes before here. Last week when I went to a baking supplies shop, I bought strawberry paste and pandan paste that is commonly used for baking cookies, cake or bread. So I thought it will be cool to make 2 colors Doraemon pancakes this morning. The paste didn't just bring out the color but also the strawberry and pandan tastes too. This is perfect for Christmas breakfast with 2 tones colors, more festive feel I think.
 I used Pillsbury pancake ready mix and pancake syrup. Is easy to make and quick too.
All you need are :
> 1 cup Pillsburry pancake ready mix
> 170-180ml water
> 1/4 tsp (1.25cc) pandan paste / strawberry paste
Mixed all the above ingredients in the bowl until even and no lumps.

So smoothly made, with no lumps! It's just beautiful! I'll take the whole stack please! Hehe :D

Hi Lia, nice color tone...!
how to make it even..? i meant after cooked? sometimes, mine turned out half browned/burnt. Is it due to the factor of fire or the pan?

I just declared that Doraemon is my all-time-beloved cartoon character, and now you come up with Doraemon pancake... Huuuuuu, mauuuuuuuu T_T

So cute and I love the sweet color of the Doraemon panckae :)

You are so good in making these, everything look so smooth, just like your egg sheets! Salute!!

@sherimiya : Thanks a lot Sheri! I will send the whole stack right away hehehe :)

@Journal Mommy Yenny : Thanks a lot Yen! Ah yes, have to see the size of the pan. Usually pancakes pan quite small, so have to use the smallest burner and low/medium fire :)

@yunitarahmasari aka tatabonita : You are welcome to come to my house anytime. I will make it for you ;)

@Anncoo : Thanks a lot Ann! Love how the colors came out too :)

hi Lia! I got three words for you THIS IS FANTASTIC! wow, perfect pancakes, perfect color, perfect lighting, everything perfect. I'm drooling! :D

@Sysyl : Thanks a lot Syl! Pakai api kecil dan setiap setelah bikin 2 pancakes sebaiknya pan didiamkan dulu supaya cooling down, bila pan terlalu panas maka cepat menjadi gosong :)

@Rio : Hi Rio! Thanks a lot for your sweet comment! You encourage me to learn and experiment more for a good food photo. Glad that you enjoy this one :)

@karaimame : Thanks a lot Lilian! Finished all this morning, but always can make more for you and for your 2 little girls ;)

@Emily Ng : Thanks a lot Emily! I wish I can send the pancakes to all of my bento friends through Doraemon's magic door. So just pretend, shall we? hehehe :D

Such cute pancakes! The colors are so soft and pretty.

It's so much fun to see what can be done with ordinary foods. :)

These are just to cute to eat! What fun it must be to be a kid and eat at your house!

These are just as smooth as your egg sheets. Amazing how you do that! I try to get pancakes like this constantly and fail because they always have brown on them or bubble somewhere. Great job!!

Aih! I don't think I have the heart to eat such cute pancakes. They are good enough for kiddie's collector items! So what other pans you have? Besides doraemon and donald duck? :D

Love the vibrant pink and soft green theme, looks so fresh and happy...and perfectly made, of course!

oh my those are amazing and look so light and fluffy inside. The pancake pan is precious!

Oh My!!!! so colorful and yummyyyy!!! I love doraemon and always will, to bad we do not have it here so my boys can enjoy it too ^_^

Wow it's so pretty and cute! How much was the pancake pan?

Sooo cute. And they look so even and perfect.

@Kuusou : Thanks a lot Kuusou! I agree with you. We can do so much with our ordinary foods :)

I lived in Taiwan for more than 20 years. How come I have never seen something like this >.< I guess I'll have to plan a trip to go back to Taiwan .....just to buy this pancake pan ;p

@Lyndsey : Thanks a lot Lyndsey! Nowadays we are so lucky to have a lot of kitchen tools that we can use :)

@Kelly Polizzi : Thanks a lot Kelly! I think the pan is a bit different from the usual pancake pan. This one is the same type with my Donald Duck pan. It closed upside down so the heat can circulate well :)

@Jun : Thanks a lot Jun! By now, maybe you know already that I love cute stuffs. I can't resist to buy cute kitchen utensils hehehe ... Have a lot of cute pans at home but some of them turned out as a failed product because the non-stick coating are really bad :)

@bentobird : Thanks a lot Jenn! This is totally thanks to my Doraemon pan hehehe ... I was doing a small effort only :D

@Mommyof2girlz : Thanks a lot Steph! I don't think I regret it at all to bring back the cute pans in my luggage. Totally worth it ;)

@Just a MOM : Thanks a lot Lin!

@Mi : Thanks a lot Mi! When I bought it is about TWD (Taiwanese Dollar) 1,000.

@Kyo : Thanks a lot Kyo!

@Tiffany Yang : Oh my! I got a lot of cute stuff from my trip to Taiwan last time. You should check on Hands Tailung (mainly Japanese products) and Komonoya (lots of Hello Kitty stuffs) when you go back to Taiwan :)

Hi Lia, i've tried this Doraemon pancake (yes you did inspired me, dear) but i turned out not as lovely as yours ( hiks...hiks.. ) ca u show us the pan? maybe I got the wrong pan. LOL blame it on the pan.
