Santa pancakes recipe

Take one quantity pancake mix and add some whipped cream, strawberries and currants and voila - you have Santa pancakes!



  • 1 quantity of Simple pancakes batter
  • 1 punnet of fresh strawberries, topped and sliced crossways
  • 1 can whipped cream
  • 2 banana slices
  • currants


Cook your pancakes as per the Simple pancakes recipe and create a beard with the whipped cream.

Decorate with strawberries to create a triangular hat and top it off with a whipped cream 'pom pom'.

Pop on some currants or even sultanas for eyes.


  • You can use fresh whipped cream in this but I have used a whipped cream can for convenience.
  • Blueberries are great substitute for eyes if you have them in the fridge.
