Santa Pancake

Around Halloween, IHOP had a promotion doing “scary face pancakes.” We never did go and get one, but that excited Punkin so we made some of them at home using chocolate chips, marshmallows and candy corn to make various features. Last night, we read the Curious George story where he cooks pancakes and she said she wanted them for breakfast. “Santa faced pancakes!” she specified.

I gave it my best shot. It certainly isn’t wonderful. I am learning that a single chocolate chip never works well for an eye so I either need a few for each eye or to get some oversized chips. Also, she insisted on using big flat sprinkles which is why Santa has random colored spots on his face. If I do this again, I also won’t use a whole cherry for the nose. It gives it too much height and makes the face cook funny. I’ll chop it in half so the whole thing has a lower profile when I flip it and cook it. The best part about it was the shape, which was pretty good considering I did the whole thing free pouring batter into approximately what I wanted.

On the upside, she basically ate the whole thing plus several strips of bacon so that is a new breakfast eating record or close to it. If we do it again, it should be a better likeness. Live and learn.

    Try a dab of ready whip with a chocolate chip in the middle for the eye 😉

    Why don’t you cook the Santa head first and then add the eyes and stuff after? Will be a sharper contrast that way.

    I can do that, but I am trying to avoid making it easy to just eat the chocolate chips and cherry without the pancake itself. If they are just siting on top, nothing else gets eaten until all that stuff is gone.
