The Best Christmas Pancakes on the Web

Christmas is coming! Are you going to make pancakes? Pancakes are the best. Whether as a Christmas breakfast or a part of your festive Christmas dinner table, they are always the easiest and the most delicious choice. And if you make too much (does such a thing exist?), you can use them the day after to prepare some great, light parfaits. Here is a list of the ultimate pancake recipes out there that will help you say “goodbye” to 2016 and welcome 2017 in style.

Red Velvet Pancakes with Cream Cheese Glaze

These pancakes are in all the colors of Christmas. The red is obtained by adding red food coloring to the batter and some fresh raspberries on top. The white comes from the cream cheese glaze and the green from the mint leaf used for garnish. They are light enough to serve as breakfast and good-looking enough to decorate your Christmas table. They taste divine!

Hot Mincemeat Pancakes

This reminiscent of mincemeat pies is the perfect solution if you are hesitating between pancakes and pies and don’t have the time (or the nerves) to make both. One cup of prepared mincemeat is folded into the pancake batter, but this recipe also has an orange hard sauce made with orange juice, orange zest, butter, and powdered sugar.

Eggnog Pancakes

Kids love these rich and creamy pancakes. In fact, we all love them, they are just so Christmas-y! Add 2 cups of eggnog to the batter. But not just any eggnog. Make your own by mixing 4 eggs, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 pint whole milk, 1 cup heavy cream, and a teaspoon of grated nutmeg. This is the kids-friendly version. For the adults, add 3 oz. booze of your choice, preferably bourbon, brandy or rum, or a mix of all of them, why not. Complement the pancake batter with some more nutmeg, vanilla, and rum extract.

Gingerbread Pancakes

Another blend of two amazing Christmas recipes. These pancakes are flavored with ginger, cinnamon, and black treacle. You can also add nutmeg and cloves and a cup of grated apple or pumpkin puree to this recipe. When it comes to serving them, get creative. Top with whipped cream plus green and red sprinkles and a mini gingerbread man. Expect your kids to go crazy!

Christmas Pudding Pancakes

Oh, how I love this explosion of winter flavors! And oh, what fun it is to eat it! I just have to list the ingredients added to the standard pancake batter, so that you at least get the idea: 3 tablespoons raisins, 3 tablespoons chopped dates, 1 tablespoon currant, 2 teaspoons candied mixed peel, 1 tablespoon brandy, 2 tablespoons chopped almonds. All this is spiced with cinnamon, ginger, clove and nutmeg.

Don’t forget, even the plainest pancakes can be turned into a fun, decorative dish. Stack them to form a Christmas trees or create snowmen or Santa Clauses by using only whipped cream and fruit slices. Buy some Christmas molds and play. Happy Holidays!
