Pancakes are one of my boys’ favorite foods. They’re not only a breakfast staple, they also love them any time of day—as a tea-time snack, dessert, and a savory version for dinner. These chocolate pancakes with whipped cream are one variation they can’t get enough of. In celebration of Minnie Mouse, I thought it would be perfect to turn them into the lovable character. And these Tsum Tsum pancakes couldn’t be cuter (or more delicious!).

Minnie Tsum Tsum Pancakes
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 1 tbsp baker’s sugar (super fine)
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup milk
- Melted chocolate
- Zip-top bag
- Whipping cream
- Pink gel icing
In a bowl, sift in flour and cocoa, combine with sugar.
Gradually whisk in the eggs and milk. Mix until you get a batter.
Heat a pan over medium heat and brush with melted butter.
Use a ladle to scoop up mixture into the pan. This will be for Minnie’s face.
Use a tablespoon to scoop up mixture into the pan. This will be for Minnie’s ears. Repeat to make the other ear.
Use melted milk chocolate to draw Minnie’s features. Place the chocolate in a zip-top bag, cut a small hole, pipe on parchment paper, leave in fridge to harden, and then peel off. Place on the pancake. You can also pipe directly onto the pancake, if preferred.
Cut strawberry into half for Minnie’s bow. Place on the pancake.
Using a mixer, whip up whipping cream until soft peaks form. Use a spatula to spread it out on the pancake to form Minnie’s face.
Scoop a little whipped cream in a zip-top bag, cut a small hole, and pipe round dots onto Minnie’s bow.
Squeeze out a dot of pink gel icing for Minnie’s cheeks.
