Snowflake Breakfast

Celebrate winter, snow, a snow day off school, or just make breakfast fun with snowflake pancakes!

Snowflake Pancakes

Snowflake pancakes are so easy to create.

Prepare your pancakes, and place one onto the center of a plate.

Next, use an aerosol whipped cream container to “draw” a simple snowflake design as shown above.  Make a hexagon around the border of the pancake, and add a three pointed branch coming out of each of the six points.

For a finishing, snowy touch, sprinkle some powdered sugar in the middle.

Serve snowflake pancakes alongside some fresh raspberries or strawberries and a small serving of scrambled eggs for a delightful snow day breakfast the kids will love!

    With the temperature in Pittsburgh in the winter being so low, were always experiencing snow. I love that you view this as a day to make food. This would be a big hit in my house. I could definitely see the kids getting involved as well. Thanks for the post!
