Most kids aren’t picky when it comes to pancakes. After all, how can you go wrong with the syrup-covered breakfast food? But one mom discovered that there was a way to enhance her daughter’s breakfast. She took one silly pancake suggestion and turned it into a daily activity.

Anne Sage told her social media followers how she makes “dog pancakes” for her daughter every morning. The more she does it, the more creative she gets with her designs. Her daughter might not appreciate all the details, but dog lovers around the world sure do!

Introducing Dog Pancakes!

Sage said she started making dog-shaped pancakes because her daughter became obsessed with a Sesame Street episode showcasing a robot dog. So, her daughter began asking her to make “robot dog pancakes” over and over again.

Sage started making dog pancakes for breakfast to fulfill her daughter’s request, but no matter how many times she did it, her daughter still asked for more the next day. Sage started mixing it up and creating unique dogs each morning to keep things interesting.

“Out of the blue one day, she asked me to make her ‘robot dog’ pancakes, and then every morning after for weeks, she had the same request. So to keep things interesting for myself, I started making a different dog each morning,” said Sage.

Soon, Sage was trying to master pancakes of a variety of dog breeds. It became more of a fun activity for herself than a request from her daughter. Before Sage knew it, her pancakes were famous on social media.

Pancakes for Every Dog Breed

Sage is an interior design and renovation expert, so she uses her creative skills to design pancakes for a wide range of dog breeds. Some of her masterpieces include a Standard Poodle, Dachshund, Chihuahua, Greyhound, and Saint Bernard. She uses Greek yogurt-based batter with bananas and oats. She often adds fruit on top to make the eyes and nose.

Some of the breeds take several tries to perfect. She said it took her a while to successfully create the Saint Bernard without it looking like a big blob. Even though Sage spends so much time on the pancakes, she’s not sure her daughter appreciates it as much as the internet does.

“I can’t really say she had a favorite — or even a true appreciation for my artistry — because the moment I put them in front of her, she demands that I cut them up and drown them in melted butter,” Sage said with a laugh.

Even though these pancakes are much more tedious than traditional ones, Sage seems to have a blast making them, and dog lovers around the world are falling in love with the designs. Maybe dog pancakes will become a trendy new hobby.
