Santa pancakes

For a meal sure to make little eyes shine bright, try this adorable breakfast of cinnamon-flavored pancakes that are the spitting image of Santa Claus.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon Spice Island® Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 medium bananas, sliced
  • 18 semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
  • Whipped cream in a can

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine baking mix and cinnamon. Combine the eggs, milk and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until second side is golden brown.
  2. Place pancakes on individual plates. For Santa’s eyes, place two banana slices on each pancake; top with a chocolate chip. For ears, cut remaining banana slices in half; place on either side of pancake. For nose, remove nine cherries from pie filling; place one in the center of each pancake.
  3. Spoon 1/4 cup pie filling above pancake for hat. Use whipped cream to spray the beard, hat brim and pom-pom.

Yield: 9 servings.
