Do you serve a special breakfast for Christmas morning? Or do you fill up on your stocking stuffers and candy canes? Honestly, we tend do do a little bit of both. I usually try to get around to making a late breakfast for my family. Something that is a “little” bit healthier than Christmas Candy. This year I think I am going to be making these Red Velvet Pancakes with a “candy cane” swirl.
I decided to glam up the traditional Red Velvet Pancakes and add a festive Holiday swirl. I know Red Velvet is not for everyone…but these tasted pretty amazing. My kids LOVED them. And I love how pretty they are!
And here is the thing, I love eating a hot breakfast in the morning…but don’t always love getting up extra early in the morning to make it. So I have a little trick that works pretty well for us. I will make up a big batch of pancakes and then pop them into the freezer.
I put them into a Freezer Ziploc Baggie and separate each pancake with a small square of parchment or wax paper. Then in the morning we pull them out and pop them into the toaster. Bingo! A quick…no mess…hot breakfast for the kids. They also make great on the go snacks to.
I whipped up a quick and easy Vanilla Cream Cheese Syrup that was the perfect touch of sweetness to the Red Velvet Pancakes. Or…top it with some whipped cream and some frozen raspberries! Yum!
Here is the recipe:
