Directions

Place tofu between several layers of paper towels. Press hard to squeeze out moisture. Set in a strainer over a bowl to drain further.
Press down tofu one final time to blot moisture. Place in medium bowl; mash tofu with fork. Add eggs and blend together. Batter will be lumpy and thin.
Add flour, butter, oil, salt and extract. Mix until just blended.
Pour 2/3 cup of batter into large nonstick skillet while cooking over a medium-high heat to make large pancakes. Cook about 3 minutes or until golden brown. Flip pancake over and cook another 3 minutes or until golden brown.
Make a "happy face" by placing 2 pieces of sliced banana above center of pancake and top each piece with a blueberry, raisin or bit of green grape for "eyes." Form smile by placing a half circle of dried cranberries on bottom half of pancake. Serve immediately. Pancakes may also be served with a dusting of powdered sugar, syrup or other favorite topping.

Note:
To make smaller pancakes,
use only 1/4 cup of batter.
Use raisins or bits of a green grape to personalized "eye" color.
