With a blog focused on sweets, breakfast isn’t a topic I cover often, if at all. But Christmas pancakes as fun and easy as these certainly qualify for “creative sweets made simple”. Start a new tradition at your house by whipping up a batch of these for Christmas breakfast this year!
Step 1: Supplies for Christmas Breakfast Pancakes
Step 2: How to Prepare the Batter for Christmas Breakfast Pancakes
Heat up your griddle as you are preparing the batter for your Christmas breakfast pancakes.
Divide the batter into four sections. Use your food coloring to dye each section a different color, red, green, white and ivory. Then, pour each colored batter into a piping bag and tie off the end of the bag. When you are ready to use each color, simply cut off the tip and begin piping.
Step 3: How to Make Santa Pancakes
To make the Santa pancakes, start by laying down a heart-shaped sprinkle for the nose and two black confetti sprinkles for the eyes. Use a (clean, for food use only) pair of tweezers for more precise placement. Next, use your ivory colored batter to pipe a rounded rectangular shape over the sprinkles for Santa’s face. Working quickly, use your red batter to pipe a triangle for Santa’s hat and your white batter to draw in the ball on Santa’s hat and the beard. Save the white batter for last so that it doesn’t brown on the griddle. When the bottom side of your Santa pancake is cooked, flip it to cook the other side.
Step 4: How to Make Christmas Tree Pancakes
Scatter white star or flower-shaped sprinkles onto your griddle. On top of the sprinkles, draw triangle shapes with your green batter to make a Christmas tree shape. While the batter is cooking, place a yellow star sprinkle at the top of the tree. Once the under side of the Christmas tree pancake is cooked, flip it to cook the other side.
