Snowman Pancakes

This weekend’s snowy weather inspired us to create a festive breakfast in Eckert’s Cooking Classroom! Our young chefs had lots of fun making their own snowman pancakes. The whole class got involved in mixing the ingredients for the pancake batter. Then, each child poured their own batter onto the electric griddles. These one of a kind creations turned out as cute as their creators and there were smiles galore during the process.

Snowman Pancakes

Note: If you are in a hurry, you can speed up your creation process by using pancake mix.

1 ¾ cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup sour cream
¼ cup melted butter or vegetable oil
½ teaspoon vanilla
Spray oil
Mini chocolate chips
Powdered sugar
Mini marshmallows
Eckert’s bacon, cooked (optional)

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside.  In a separate bowl, lightly whisk eggs.  Add milk, sour cream, butter or oil, and vanilla.  Whisk to blend.  Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour the liquid mixture into it.  Vigorously whisk the ingredients just until blended (about 10 sec.).  Spray griddle with oil.  Heat.  Ladle about ¼ cup batter for each pancake onto griddle.  Cook until bubbles appear.  Flip and cook until lightly browned.  Arrange 2 pancakes on a plate for the snowman.  Decorate eyes, mouth, and buttons with mini chocolate chips.  Dust with powdered sugar and place a few mini marshmallows at the base as snow.  If desired, arrange pieces of cooked bacon as a scarf.  Makes 12 pancakes or 6 snowmen.
