“"Yule" love these adorably jolly Santa pancakes as a festive way to start off your Christmas morning! Add a side of sausage and/or bacon and a cup of creamy hot cocoa filled to the brim with fluffy marshmallows or a glass of chilled, spiced eggnog for an Elf approved breakfast!”
10 pancakes

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups pancake mix
  • 1 cup milk (butter milk or almond milk are great alternatives for fluffier pancakes)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 lb strawberry, sliced
  • 1 (12 ounce) bottle chocolate syrup
  • 1 (10 ounce) bag marshmallows
  • 1 (7 ounce) can whipped cream


  1. Heat your griddle or skillet. If you have Kenyon's All Seasons™ Grill with griddle attachment, then attach the griddle, add 1.5 cups of water to the drip tray and preheat grill to a medium heat (4 bars).
  2. Mix the pancake mix and other ingredients together as directed on the box.
  3. Whisk all ingredients together as directed. Don’t over mix your batter, small lumps are fine.
  4. Add cinnamon and vanilla to the batter.
  5. Let the mix sit for a couple minutes. Next spread oil over the griddle and pour 1/2 cup of batter onto the griddle. You’ll want to make larger pancakes to have room for all of Santa’s accessories.
  6. When the batter starts to bubble and the edges set, flip over. Repeat until remainder of the batter is finished.
  7. Once your pancakes have cooled, add strawberries, sliced in half, to make Santa’s hat and top with a marshmallow. Add a whipped cream beard and trim the hat. Dab on chocolate sauce to create eyes and a joyful smile.
