Tie Dye Pancakes
So why make tie-dye pancakes you ask? The answer is, why not? These are brightly colored pancakes that will make your children smile ear to ear. A fantastic birthday pancake recipe, the first day of school breakfast, or a fun freezer breakfast recipe to meal prep.
How To Make
Step 1: Start by mixing up your pancake batter as directed in the recipe card below. Then you will separate the mixture into different bowls.
Step 2: Then you will add food coloring to each bowl. This is where you can pick any colors you want. Make them as light or as vibrant as you would like. I used this Gel Wilton Food coloring. It worked perfectly to make these colored pancakes.
Step 3: Then cook them up on a griddle or pan and then stack your pancakes and serve up one incredible breakfast, brunch, or dinner for the family.
Do Pancakes Freeze Well
Pancakes are a great make-ahead breakfast that you can toss in the freezer and then war up in the microwave or even the toaster when you are ready to serve.
Just make pancakes as directed. Then place pancakes in a single layer on a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Toss in the freezer uncovered for around 30 minutes.
Once frozen you will then place in a freezer bag or freezer-friendly container and store in the freezer for 2-3 months.
Remove and then reheat whenever you are ready for a quick on the go breakfast!

Can I Add In Other Ingredients To Pancake Batter
You could add in some fruit like blueberries or even white chocolate chips. That would add more fun colors to the pancakes and flavor. Feel free to add in other ingredients if you want.
Just know if you overcook the pancakes it will kind of brown up the outside of the pancakes.
- 2 cups Bisquick
- 1 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- Wilton Gel Food Coloring
- butter and syrup for toppings, if desired.
- Preheat griddle to 350 degrees or medium heat. Combine Bisquick, milk, and eggs in a medium-size mixing bowl and beat with a whisk until most of the lumps are gone in the batter.
- Separate into three (or however many tie-dye colors you want!) bowls and add a small amount of gel coloring to each, mixing it into the batter and adding more gel to achieve the desired color intensity.
- Tip: You can purchase plastic condiment containers for under a dollar at most stores. They work really well to apply the different colors of pancake batter where you want them on the griddle. It works the best to draw a circle with the colored batter and fill in with a tie dye design with different batter colors.
- You can use a toothpick or the edge of a butter knife to swirl the colors together to make it look more like tie dye!
- Wait until bubbles appear on the pancake and flip it over to finish cooking. Serve with butter and maple syrup, if desired.
