The Breakfast of Jedi

Summer vacation has begun, and breakfasts will never be the same in the Pennington home.  We decided to test out the Starwars pancake molds from William Sonoma that Auntie Jenny sent our way.  The recipe was so good, I thought I would include it here for you all to try!

Starwars Pancakes: 2 eggs, 2 cups flour, sifted, 3 Tbs. sugar, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. salt, 2 1/2 cups buttermilk, 4 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted, 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, 1-2 Tbs. vegetable oil.
In a bowl, using an electric mixer or a handheld whisk, beat the eggs on med. speed until frothy.  Add remaining ingredients.  Stir just until batter is smooth and no lumps of flour remain; do not overmix.  Thanks Williams-Sonoma for this yummy recipe!

The thing that saved the day and made these pancakes possible is this batter pourer also from Williams-Sonoma.  You can pour the batter in on the bottom and then squeeze the batter out in perfect amounts to all the parts of the pancake mold.  The storm-trooper was the toughest!  He was definitely the bad guy of the morning.  But we had fun.  Look, Reagan even dressed for the part in his Starwars shirt!
By the way, that is a Jedi "HeeYaw!" light-saber-fork- face...
Is it bad to start off the day eating Darth Vader?

Can this give small children nightmares?  Hope not!  Enjoy the recipe ... and may the Syrup be with you!
