Coolest Breakfast Ever? Dad Makes Beatle Themed Pancakes (Video)


We've had a fair few contenders for Coolest Dad of the Year so far.

There was the dad who created a rollercoaster in his family's garden, and the father who bought an old leisure centre waterslide for his kids to play on.

But Nathan Shields looks likely to take the crown with his fabulous family pancakes.

Nathan created the pancakes – which are made into the shape of the fab four – for his children, and filmed his efforts for his YouTube channel.

The clip shows Nathan sketching out Paul, George, John and Ringo in pancake batter, before cooking and serving them to his adoring children.

Story continues after the video

The end of the clip shows Nathan's skills are not just exclusive to Liverpudlian musicians – he also makes beetle (as in bug) pancakes which are equally impressive.

Nathan's efforts didn't go to waste either. His post on YouTube explains his children were delighted with his work (presumably because they got to eat them). He wrote:

"The kids were surprised to find that they already knew a bunch of Beatles song."
