by katiem2

Pancakes are a kid friendly food they love to eat and can easily learn to make themselves. Learn how to make the kid favorite snow angel pancakes today.

Snow Angel Pancakes are a time honored tradition in our home. I have two wonderful daughters. We've enjoyed cooking together from the time they were old enough to set on the counter and help mix and add ingredients.

Pancakes, flapjacks or johnny cakes are a kids favorite and for good reason. Making pancakes is a great food kids will enjoying cooking all of their lives. There's a lot of room for creativity when it comes to making pancakes. Follow along as I share with you the fun tasty recipe for snow angel pancakes.

Pancakes Kids Favorite Food

Pancakes have always been a fun favorite for kids.

We have a pancake tradition in our house.  We've made our own syrup in the classroom, collecting the sap from maple trees and slowly boiling it down to honest to goodness maple syrup.  The wonderful life experiences and fond childhood memories are endless when it comes to pancakes.  

One of our favorite pancake traditions is snow angel pancakes.  Each time we get snow fall we make snow angel pancakes to fuel up with lots of energy to play in the snow. 

Plus it a time tradition honoring the snow fall and great snow angels we make from it.

The challenge is to make these only when it snows. But they are really tasty and it's hard. Basically you use any good pancake mix. We make homemade pancakes for these.



Prep time 5 min  -  Total time 20 min
Ingredients for 6 servings
2 cups self rising flour tossed in a mixing bowl  • I egg cracked open landing in the mix.  • 1 teaspoon vanilla  • 2/3 cup of milk  • Cooking spray to coat the griddle of skillet  • Powdered sugar  • Real Butter

Blend Lightly

Blend Lightly

After adding the eggs, vanilla and milk to the flour mix lightly, this maintains a nice fluffy pancake. If the mix is thick add a bit more water or milk till it's a good pouring consistency.

Snow Angel Pancakes

Have fun making silly shapes and sizes pouring the batter onto a hot buttered griddle. We use ONLY real butter.

As the angel cakes come off the griddle spread with more real butter and sprinkle with powdered sugar eating while hot, but not burning little mouths.

Once you taste these you'll realize the magic in them. Let the cravings begin and see if you can eat these delicious pancakes only when it snows.

You may no doubt ever stop craving this delicious combination of winters bliss.

How to Burn off The Pancakes

Then it's off to have fun sledding or building snow men. There is no need to worry about the calories because you will burn them off playing in the snow. Every time the weather calls for snow my kids get so excited about making snow angel pancakes. They adore this amazing tradition and so do I.

Traditions or rituals are a great way to build lasting bonds between you and your kids. Enjoy these delicious pancakes even if you don't have snow.  Its snowing somewhere? My kids found away around the only when it snows rule. If they notice it is snowing in another state we make them in honor of that state.  The weather channel may become a more popular channel in your house!

Enjoy, Katie
