Reindeer Pancakes Are Easy to Make with the Kids

Make breakfast into a fun activity over the Holidays. Dads, here is a fun food that you can serve to your kids during the Christmas break .  Make some colored pancake mix and let the kids have fun making and eating their creations.  We made these cute Reindeer pancakes, but you can also try some colorful ornaments and snowmen. It’s super easy using plastic squeeze bottles.  Find them in a kitchen department of most stores.  You can find the clear kind or ones designed for use with ketchup or mustard.  Be sure to get one one for plain cake batter besides the colored batter you will make.

Let the kids help make their own pancakes with parental supervision.  Our kids enjoyed making their own creations and so will yours.

What you need:

Pancake mix

Eggs

Vegetable oil

Milk

Red food coloring

Green food coloring

Plastic squeeze bottles
Make pancake mix according to directions on package.  Prepare batter using directions for 2 cups pancake mix.  Divide batter into containers.  For reindeer, mix ½ cup batter and 5 drops red food coloring.  For green batter, use ½ cup mix and 4 drops green food coloring.  Leave remaining batter as is.

Pour each color batter into a squeeze bottle.  Heat griddle to medium heat.  For reindeer, make a dot for eye, then add plain batter on top of eye to form a 2 inch circle.  Add a red nose and a red collar.  To form antlers, make a thin line touching head and then make a small branch coming from first part of antler.  Antlers will spread, so only make a fairly thin antler.
