It rarely snows in southern California, so we have to get our wintery groove on some other way.

Snowman Pancakes seem like a great way! These would be wonderful as Christmas breakfast, or any day.

Snowman Pancakes with Cam

This is our friend Cam, the morning after a sleepover with my son.

I’m betting he’ll be sleeping over again soon!

These are so easy they don’t need a recipe, but I’ll give you a helping hand:

Recipe: Snowman Pancakes

Summary: Snowman Pancakes are charming, whimsical and perfect for wintery days or Christmas breakfast. Who can resist?


  • Pancake batter (enliven it with a pinch of sugar and a splash of vanilla)
  • Chocolate chips
  • Cooked bacon strips
  • Mini marshmallows


  1. Pour pancake batter onto the hot griddle in 2 circles that touch (one will be the body, one will be the head).
  2. Cook as usual, flipping over when bubbles appear.
  3. Place on plate, position a bacon strip as the scarf, chocolate chips as the eyes, nose and buttons, and mini marshmallows as the snow upon which he stands.
  4. Eat with gusto!

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 3 minutes
