Reindeer pancake recipe

Once in a while I like to try making some fun pancakes for the grandkids.  I can’t say my trials are always successful … sometimes I end up with an unrecognizable blob for a pancake that was supposed to be a flower or something much more recognizable.  But I keep giving it a go and trying different things for various holidays.  I must say that the Reindeer pancakes turned out really, really cute!  And now that I’ve gotten the method down, I wanted to share with you.

These little pancakes will bring a smile to anyone in the morning.  And they are perfect for a wintry breakfast or a holiday celebration.

Items needed:

  • 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.
