Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! You may be wondering, “Ro, why are you dressed up as Reynn, from
World of Final Fantasy?” And the answer is because I got so many requests
from you guys to make something Final Fantasy themed, and the new game, World
of Final Fantasy, just came out, I’m playing it, I am enjoying
it. So I decided to partner with Square Enix who
supported this video to make some yummy themed treats today. I also have been getting a lot of requests
from you guys to make Pancake Art, and I’m really excited because, I’ve never
made Pancake Art before. So today, we are gonna be making Final Fantasy
Themed, Mirage Pancakes. Also, for those of you who aren’t familiar
with the video game, mirages are these cute characters that you collect in
the game that help you in battle. They kind of like, stack on your head when
you’re battling, and that’s why I thought pancakes would be perfect, because
you stack pancakes too! Alright, so let’s get started! We are gonna be making a pancake recipe from
scratch today, and just a helpful tip, when you’re making pancake art, you
want to add a little bit more flour, a little bit more dry ingredients, to off-set
the liquid dye that we’re gonna be putting in. The things you will need, will be: 2 Cups of all purpose flour, 1-1/4 cup of
milk, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of vanilla
extract, 3-1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1 tablespoon of sugar. And then to decorate I’m gonna be using
a bunch of needle nosed little squeezie bottles, and food colorings. The colors I’m using are: Deep Pink,
Sky Blue, Mint Green, White, Lemon Yellow, Orange, Red, Leaf Green and
Black. Now let’s put it all together! The first thing that we’re gonna do, in
a large mixing bowl, we are gonna combine all of our dry ingredients and whisk
them together. Flour, our salt, our sugar, and baking powder. Then using a whisk, we’re just gonna whisk
together until well combined. Now in a medium sized bowl, we’re gonna
whisk together our wet ingredients. Gonna pour in our milk, oil, 1 egg, and vanilla
extract. Then whisk it together until it’s well combined. We’ve got our dry ingredients and our wet
ingredients ready, next we’re gonna pour all of the wet ingredients into our dry
ingredients. Now, using a hand mixer, we’re just gonna
mix the 2 together until it’s nice and smooth. When you’re making pancake art, you want
the batter to be as smooth as possible. Our batter is ready, and now I’m gonna divide
it into 10 different bowls, and dye them different colors. The first color is dark yellow, which is a
combination of orange and lemon yellow. The next color is a light yellow, which is
just lemon yellow. Light green, which is a mixture of mint and
leaf. Then for white we’ll just be using white. And black, using black. For dark green, we’re using leaf green. For blue we’re using sky blue. For orange, using orange. Red using red. Then for pink using a combination of deep
pink and lemon yellow. We’ve got all of our batters colored, and
now I’m gonna transfer our batter into these little squeezie bottles. I found it was a little bit difficult to scoop
it directly in there, because the bottle is so small. So what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna
scoop the batter into a piping bag, and then squeeze it into the bottle. I know it sounds a little fancy, because it
is! Da-neee! And now we’re gonna do this to the rest
of our batters. Now it’s time to cook up our pancakes, in
front of me I have an electric griddle, I’m using this for a little bit more control
because it’s easier to adjust the temperatures. You can make your pancakes over on the stove,
in a pan. But I would say for pancake art that is a
little bit more advanced, because it’s harder to control the temperature. I’m gonna start piping Cactuar, using the
black batter. We’re gonna start by outlining the shape
of his body, and he’s kind of a stretched oval shape. Then his arms and legs, hair, eyeballs and
mouth. Then using the dark green batter I’m gonna
pipe some lines down the middle, throughout the body, to make him look more
like a cactus! Now, turn the heat to low for about 10 seconds,
allowing the batter to set, and then turn it off. The last step is we’re gonna fill him in with
the light green batter. Turn the heat back to low and cook until little
bubbles start to form on your pancake. Then, flip it over to cook the other side. To make our Moogle pancake, we are gonna outline
the head, face, and antenna in black batter. Next, add some white details, to the nose,
antenna, in the white batter. Then continue the details in the nose, antenna,
cheeks, and the mouth with light pink batter. Then add the red batter to detail the ears,
and fill in the rest of the antenna and nose. Then, pipe a little bit more pink batter to fill
in the center of the ears. Now, turn on the griddle to 275 degrees for
10 seconds to allow the batter outline to start to dry. Turn the heat off and fill in the entire face
with the white batter. Now turn the griddle back on to 325 degrees,
and cook the pancake until little bubbles start to
form. Then carefully flip the pancake over and allow
it to cook on the other side. To make our Chocobo, draw the outline of the
face, feathers, beak and eyes with the black batter. Then fill the whites and highlights of the
eyes with the white batter. Then, shade the face with the dark yellow
and add some detail to the beak. Next, fill in the eyes with the blue batter,
and fill the remaining portion of the beak with the orange batter. Then turn the griddle on to 275 degrees for
10 seconds to allow the outlines to set. Turn off the heat and fill the entire pancake
with light yellow batter. Once again, turn the griddle back on to 325
degrees until the pancake begins to form little bubbles, then carefully flip
the pancake over and allow it to cook on the other side. Da-da! Here are the Final Fantasy Themed Pancakes
that we made today! In honor of the game that just came out we
made pancake art to look like some mirage characters. These came out super cute, and the new game
is super cute as well. I’ll put a link down below if you want to
go check it out and play World of Final Fantasy. I’m playing it! I think these Final Fantasy Treats are pretty
cute, because, in the game when you’re in battle mode, your mirages
stack on top of each other. And pancakes, you stack ‘em to eat ‘em,
so we’ve got all of our little guys stacked up! I’ll be taking lots of pictures and posting
the recipe on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook! And if you guys make these pancakes, please
take a picture and send it to me, I love seeing your baking creations, it just
makes my day! It makes me happy! And if you have any other ideas for any other
Nerdy Nummies, please let me know, leave me a comment down below and I will do
my best to make it happen! Thanks again you guys, and thank you to World
of Final Fantasy for partnering with me to make this video! Bye-bye! I’m gonna take these little pancakes and I’m
gonna go play some World of Final Fantasy! Excuse me! I love how this game looks, it’s so cute
and colorful! I love the details of the forest, it looks
so magical and pretty, it looks like a fairy tale! It’s fun to see a lot of my favorite characters
from previous Final Fantasy Games! Alright guys, bye-bye!
