Are you looking for a fun breakfast to make on Christmas morning? Pinterest is here to help you find the cheeriest breakfast your kids (and you) will love.
It's a simple Bisquick pancake recipe with an extra addition of green food coloring. Turn your plain pancakes green and stack to make a beautiful and edible Christmas tree. Here's how you can assemble pancakes to look just like a Christmas tree.
Have you ever eaten a green pancake?
Mix together four cups of Bisquick mix, two cups of milk, four eggs and two teaspoons of green paste food coloring. Stir all the ingredients together to make a vibrant green batter. If you want, add a splash of vanilla extract and a tablespoon of sugar to sweeten up these pancakes.
Now, heat your skillet or pan to medium-low, and drop 1/4 cup of pancake batter into the pan to create the base of the tree. Place the base of the tree on a plate and pour three tablespoons of batter into the pan to create the next layer. Next, cook two tablespoons of batter, followed by one tablespoon.
Stack all of these pancakes on top of each other and place foil on top of the plate to keep them warm while you cook the last four layers.
Pour two teaspoons for the next layer, followed by one teaspoon, half a teaspoon and a quarter of a teaspoon. Stack all the layers on top of each other and you have assembled your Christmas tree.
Sprinkle the pancakes with powdered sugar and sprinkles to finish decorating the tree.
Finish the tree by decorating, of course. Sprinkle powdered sugar all over the tree and plate to resemble snow, place circular sprinkles on the tree to resemble ornaments and finish with a yellow star candle for the star on top of the tree.
Your kids will love to eat their own Christmas tree pancakes on Christmas morning. This is such an easy and fun recipe to make for the whole family.
