- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 3 drops red food coloring
For the drizzle:

- Add the food coloring and stir until the batter reaches the desired shade of pink. *For a darker pink, add additional food coloring.
- Heat a non-stick griddle or large pan over medium-high heat, I set my griddle at 300-350 F.
- Pour or scoop ¼ cup of batter for each pancake. Wait until bubbles form to flip. Continue cooking for an additional minute to cook through, and brown on the other side. Remove from the pan or griddle and serve with a drizzle of homemade icing.
