Santa is Coming to Town Pancake



The most exciting and busiest time of the year has arrived. This eggnog Santa pancake recipe is a fantastic way to cook with kids as they learn to enjoy family time in the kitchen. Danny helped me to put Santa's face and I'm sure your children, nieces, nephews, and friends will have a fun time as well.



Ingredients:

3.2 ounces all purpose flour
A pinch of salt
1/8 tsp Madagascar Ground Vanilla
1/2 tbs baking powder
1/3 tps baking soda
1 egg lightly beaten
2/3 cup eggnog (or 6.5 oz)
2 tbs melted butter or oil
Non stick spray
2 raisings
1 marachino cherry
1 peppermint hard candy
1 container light-whipped cream
1 tube decorating gel in white

Preparation

Preheat the oven at 400 degrees.

Sift together dry ingredients in a medium size mixing bowl.

Add wet ingredients to flour mix and whisk until thoroughly incorporated.

Spray non stick oil on to a pizza baking sheet and pour your pancake batter in it. Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until center is cooked.

Remove pan from heat and place it on top of iced water to cool off quickly.

Once cooled, draw a hat with the whipping cream.

Use your decorating gel to make the eye balls and insert the raisins.

Cut cherry in half and use it as a nose.

Draw the beard with the whipping cream leaving some space for the mouth. To do the mouth, just cut two slices of the other half of the cherry and place them facing each other. Finish beard with whipped cream. Place hard candy at the tip of Santa's hat and watch your kids say, "WOW!!!"
