I know my girlfriend would have be Extremely Happy if I made her these for breakfast in bed one day.

Unless there is bacon involved, it's not a happy breakfast. No matter what your pancakes look like.

Now, adding bacon to a pancake to make a smile - totally okay.

this pancake mold is hardly representative of the way i feel when i ordinarily eat pancakes! maybe i can wear one as a mask from 7am through noon?

Are you supposed to flip the pancakes over in this type of pan? It would seem one side wouldn't get the smiley impression or get cooked properly on one side?

That's the side that gets placed down on the plate.

My GF actually has one of these things, and it makes some decent pancakes (just takes a bit of getting used to having multiple little cakes on just one pan)

Now, if you just add some chocolate chips to the batter, then you're ready for breakfast.

What a nice fun way to make pancakes less boring. Now I don't have to make a smiley face using the maple syrup.

If anybody was wondering, these are made by Nordic Ware, and come in many different shapes and themes like this holiday one.

Ive always had problems fliping the pancakes so maybe this will help and the fact that it makes funny faces is just a plus

I have a similar pan with animal profiles and while it's cute for my daughter it's a total pain to flip the pancakes over. I've considered cooking the pancakes on one side and dumping the whole pan onto a normal flat griddle to cook the other side, but then that's 2 dirty pans! So yea, the stencil cooks into the pancake but it's a pain to flip them over.

I was thinking exactly the same thing. Guess you either "brown" one side only or you are extremely careful when you flip it to get it right back in the circle...

..I'm thinking I may use chopsticks to flip mine...

I'm tempted to nab one of these for the sheer joy that it would be to cook a happy face.
In fact, depending on how long of a day I had, it might be even more satisfying to just let them burn.

I thought about all that AFTER I bought this. Oh well. I'll just figure it out as I go and have the griddle handy just in case. Thanks for the heads up

Trying to resist but it's Nordicware. My favorite brand of bakeware (they have some unique bundt and muffin pans). Typically durable and easy to clean.

Is this pan coated with Teflon? I would like to get it but Teflon is poisonous to my parrot.

Pretty underwhelming deal considering jcpenney has it for $22 and I can walk in and get it tomorrow ord have it shipped to store for free and it could be easily returned there...

They are cute, but it does seem like they'd be a pain to try and flip and get the face on both sides. Think I'll stick with my Mickey Mouse waffle maker when I'm feeling whimsical for breakfast.

The Scandinavians enjoy little pancakes made in such a pan. If you like the idea and are not interested in the faces, I suggest browsing for a 'plett pan'. These are not so difficult to make as one may think, and the result is simply delicious, especially with cloudberry jam!

These are tempting, but I don't know... I can never seem to get the right amount of batter into the pan for each individual pancake. This would just make that so min more difficult.

Using the correct temperature, cooking spray or fat applied with a paper towel, and a chopstick to flip, you oughtn't have any trouble.

Try using a small ice-cream scoop.

If you want smilies or letters or whatever in your pancakes, just fill a squeeze bottle with batter, draw your image and let it cook for a while. Then pour more batter over your artistic expression. The batter from the squeeze bottle will cook longer and therefore be darker than the rest of the pancake. Ta-daaa!

Now, if you're a pancake maker of level 40 or higher, you might try Jim's Pancakes.

I suspect that making them like an omlette prevents teh flipping issue. Bake til half-2/3 done on the stovetop them put under the broiler for a minute or til brown then dump it on a plate.

I'm sorry but the irony of the progression of faces is killing me. It tells a complete story.. right down to the O-face.

.. again, sorry, but i had to get that out

Arg! I don't understand why they would put a nonstick coating on cast iron. Properly seasoned cast iron is just as nonstick as the stupid coating, and not as toxic. Boo. I really wanted this.

This pan is cast aluminum not cast iron.

Where does one find cloudberry jam in the US? I have never seen it outside of Finland.
