Turtle Pancakes

About a week ago, someone posted a link to Jim's Pancakes on a cooking board I belong to. Jim is one talented dad! Some of the things he creates out of pancake batter are just insane (in a very good way). While, I don't think I have the time/patients/talent to create a pancake ferris wheel, a turtle I could handle. Especially, since Jim shows you just how to make them in this very handy video.

Below, is the pancake recipe I used to make these. Again, for instructions on how to create the turtle please click on the video link above.
Oh more thing....the kids LOVED these :)

This recipe makes about 5 turtle pancakes

3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2 tablespoons butter, melted
green food coloring
cooking spray

Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to "sour".
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into "soured" milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone. Divide the batter (about 60/40). Add the green food coloring to the slightly larger batch of batter and stir well until color completely incorporated. Pour the green batter into a squeeze bottle, then pour the plain batter into another squeeze bottle. Follow directions in video to make the turtle.
