Bertie’s 12 Days of Christmas Baking: Day 3
Part of the fun of the12 days of baking, is giving you ideas of what to bake/eat in the days leading up to the big Christmas holiday. One of my favorite things to eat on a long weekend or any big occasion is a big feed of pancakes! Christmas morning is no different! So I’ve come up with a more festive take on pancakes!
Another way to make this traditional breakfast food a little more festive is to add a little bit of red, white, and green to the pile and say Ho Ho Ho. Here I used a handful of Wilton Christmas candy melts and chopped them up fairly fine…you don’t really need a lot of them, just enough to add some color.
Below is a recipe I like to use for homemade pancakes, but you can always use trusty ol’ Aunt Jemima if you like :)
1 c. flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
3 tbsp. sugar
1 c. milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Combine dry ingredients. Add milk, egg and oil. Mix until smooth. When your batter (in the pan) starts to form bubbles and those bubble pop and leaves a visible hole then it’s time to flip them! Another 20-30 seconds on the other side and they are ready to serve!
And of course, once you have poured your batter into the hot pan, be sure to add some chopped up Christmas treats saving the last sprinkle for on top. Serve with your favorite maple syrup and enjoy!
See you tomorrow!
