What You’ll Need to Make Santa Pancakes

I’m all about an easy Christmas themed breakfast! If you need a Saturday morning special holiday breakfast, all you’ll need is:

  • Your favorite pancake mix or homemade pancake recipe
  • Strawberries
  • Whipped cream
  • Bananas
  • Blueberries 

Steps to Make These Santa Pancakes

To make these Santa pancakes, you’ll start with making pancakes as usual. Whether you use a mix or homemade recipe, go ahead and whip up the batter and start making your pancakes.

While the pancakes are cooking, you can slice the strawberries that will make Santa’s hat and the bananas for his beard. Once the pancakes are cooked and slightly cooled (so the whipped cream won’t melt), you can start to assemble your Santas!

To transform your pancakes to Santa faces, start by adding your bananas to the bottom half of the pancakes to shape the beard. Top those with two lines of whipped cream for the mustache and the tip of a strawberry for the nose. Pile the strawberries on top in the shape of a hat and line the rim of the hat with a line of whipped cream and a spot at the top of the hat. Finish off Santa’s face with two blueberry eyes and there you have it, adorable and oh-so-simple Santa pancakes that will put a smile on everyone’s faces!
