Christmastime is right around the corner and we are already celebrating in our house! One thing that I love most about the holidays is being together with my family and making fun treats together. I love taking homemade foods and making them holiday themed like these Christmas Tree Pancake Stacks! It was fun to see my kids eyes when they saw them and how excited they were! We like to celebrate the holidays throughout the whole season and these Christmas Tree Pancake Stacks are easy to make anytime. These have definitely been added to our list of holiday food traditions!
For these I added a little almond flavoring to the Aunt Jemima pancake batter and I have to admit they were the best tasting pancakes I have ever made. They cooked up nice and fluffy too!
I find my Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix and Aunt Jemima Syrup at Walmart. Our family has a tradition of making Saturday morning pancakes together and Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix always makes it quick and easy.
I went ahead and decorated our first batch, but you can leave the stacks undecorated so that the kids can add their own sprinkles and fruits to their own. My kids love doing that!
Christmas Tree Pancake Stacks with Almond Flavored Pancakes
- Aunt Jemima Original Pancake and Waffle Mix with ingredients to make pancakes from the back of the box.
- Green Food Coloring
- 1 tsp . Almond Extract
- Aunt Jemima Original Syrup
- Garnishes optional:
- 1 Mango you will need toothpicks to secure stars to trees. cut into small cubes and/ or cut out several small stars with a cookie cutter for the top of the tree
- 10 red raspberries
- 5 grapes cut in half
- whipped cream
Preheat Griddle to medium high heat (around 325 degrees). Make 1 batch of Pancake batter according to the back of the Aunt Jemima Pancake and Waffle Mix (from the back of the box). To that add the almond extract and a few drops of green food coloring until you achieve the desired color.
Put batter into a squirt bottle or a cup/ bowl with a spout. Each pancake will be a different size starting with a pancake that is around 3 inches in diameter. Slowly squeeze or pour out batter onto the griddle making 6 to 7 pancakes that decrease in size from 3 inches. The last pancake should only be around the size of a penny. Flip the pancakes once when the batter begins to form bubbles and remove them once the other side is starting to brown (around 45 seconds). Repeat this process for each Christmas Tree Stack. Recipe makes 3 to 4 stacks.
Assemble the trees stack the pancakes starting with the biggest to the smallest. Eat as is or add the garnishes. Put the fruit around the base of the tree with a few dollops of whipped cream. Add the mango star to the top with a toothpick. Next drizzle with the Aunt Jemima Original Syrup and then add sprinkles.
I think they turned out super cute and perfect for any holiday occasion. Each stack of pancakes also filled us up quite well!
