Heart Shaped Pancakes on

Valentines Day Brunch #JLBrunches style! Heart shaped pancakes, granola cup parfaits, chocolate covered strawberries, mimosas, and of course... donuts! I put together floral arrangements with proteas, ranunculus, orchids, and greens. I think that is one of my favorite parts of hosting brunch, putting together the tablescape and the creating the floral arrangements. Oh and what better occasion for lingerie and a deep red dress than a Valentine's Day brunch? 

Read on for recipes, a clean beauty tutorial, and photos of this Valentines Day Brunch!

Heart Shaped Pancake Recipe;

-1 1⁄2 cups flour
-2 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
-3 tablespoons sugar
-3⁄4 teaspoon salt
-1 egg, slightly beaten
-3⁄4 cup milk (or more)
-3 tablespoons melted butter

-Mix together the dry ingredients. 
-Add the beaten egg, milk, and melted butter and stir vigorously.
-Stir in the dry ingredients. 
-The batter should be fully incorporated, but it will still be lumpy.
-Heat and grease your frying pan liberally with butter on medium heat.
-Spoon the batter into your frying pan.
-For the heart shaped pancakes, I used a heart shaped cookie cutter set from Target.
-When full of bubbles and the underside is browned, flip and brown the other side. 
-Serve with maple syrup, raspberries, and of course... more butter!

I doubled the recipe. This made about two dozen.
