1. Split the
batter into two parts in two separate bowls, one portion about four times
larger than the
other. Add yellow food coloring to the smaller portion; this will serve as the outline
for your giraffe. Add brown food coloring to the other portion for the details. Transfer
the batter into two separate squeeze bottles.
draw the outlines of the giraffe, including the body, head, tail, and legs, with
batter. Fill the body and legs with intersecting lines. The space you create
will allow you
to fill these in later with the brown batter. Let the outline sit for a few
moments, cooking it
thoroughly. Fill in the head completely.
letting the outline cook for about 30 seconds to retain its shape, fill in the
rest of the body
and legs with the brown batter. Also use the brown batter to put an end on the tail and
make the giraffe’s two horns. Let the batter cook for a little while before flipping the giraffe.
Let it cook a little more before plating it.
4. Place the
tail on the plate, set the body down gently, and place the head and legs
overlapping the body.
Add chocolate chips for eyes and devour the giraffe like a lion on the Serengeti
would. Lions use syrup, right?
