London and I are cooking pancakes in style with our mommy and me kitchen accessories.
Paid partnership with Disney and ShopStyle
London loves trying out new projects and activities: we’re talking everything from robotics club to ballet to Mandarin. A good kit of DIY slime transforms her into a mini scientist. When I crack open a 64-pack of crayons and roll out a big sheet of white paper, suddenly I’m in the presence of a mini Van Gogh. It makes me happy to see how curious and creative she can be (ahem I like to say she got that from me). I think it’s important to encourage London, and all kiddos, to continue to try new things. Luckily she’s eager to try just about everything except for new foods. She is only six after all, and like a true first grader, she’s a macaroni and cheese enthusiast.
I wanted to spend some mommy and me time with London while also doing something out of the ordinary. Since she loves a good project, I thought we should try preparing a new recipe together. That way, I could engage her curious little self while also getting her excited about trying new foods. Everyone who’s had to learn to cook knows that when you spend time whipping up something in the kitchen, you can’t help but look forward to trying the final result!
Just like every artist needs the finest paints and brushes, we needed the proper gear to make our mommy and me baking dates even more official. Disney recently launched the Disney Eats line, which is a playful collection of kitchen products for the whole family. The line caught my eye because many of the products include a “Big & Little” version. How fun is that? We stocked up on our kitchen tools: a big whisk for me and a mini version for LS, Mickey Mouse mixing bowls, and whimsical cookie cutters. The Disney Eats collection has all kinds of goodies that makes the act of baking treats a treat in itself! Plus, it brings out the kid in you too. The collection is available on shopDisney and at Disney Stores!
So today, Chef LS and Sous-chef Sai are bringing you a delicious Mickey Mouse Pancake recipe! Okay so maybe I didn’t have to push her too hard to eat pancakes, but hey, we’ll work our way up to escargot.

Mickey Mouse Pancakes:
Mix up 1 1/2 cups pancake mix, 2 eggs, and 2 tbsp melted butter in a mixing bowl. Whisk together until smooth and free of lumps. Place a Mickey Mouse shaped silicone pan mold inside a greased frying pan with heat set to low. Pour in mixture and let sit until edges become golden brown. Decorate with a dollop of whipped cream and fresh berries.
Hope you guys enjoyed this fun little recipe! What are your favorite recipes to bake with kids?
