Snowflake Pancakes

Thanks to our just-add-water confetti pancake mix, it’s never been easier to transform your weekday pancakes into something special. Here we’ve enlisted the help of a squeeze bottle (a recycled condiment bottle works fine) to create light, fluffy snowflake pancakes to devour at a moment’s notice. Sugar on snow just got a whole new meaning!

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the pancake mix and water just until combined; small lumps in the batter are OK.

  2. Pour the batter into a squeeze bottle with a 1/4" to 3/8" opening at the tip (you want the opening to be big enough to let the confetti pieces through), and let it sit for 5 minutes while you preheat a skillet or griddle to medium-high, 350°F.

  3. Lightly grease the skillet or griddle. Working quickly, squeeze four 4” lines of batter onto the hot surface; you want the lines to cross over one another in the center to make a snowflake pattern.

  4. Squeeze a dot at either end of each line.

  5. Squeeze enough batter over the center of the snowflake to fill in the gaps, all the way out to (but not including) the dots. Let the pancake cook until bubbles form on the top side.

  6. Flip and cook the pancake on the second side until it’s lightly browned and there’s no wet batter around the edges.

  7. Remove the pancake from the heat. Repeat with the remaining batter, cooking as many pancakes at a time as your griddle or skillet will hold.

  8. Serve hot pancakes immediately or keep pancakes warm in a low (200°F oven) until ready to serve.

  9. Leftover pancakes can be stored, well wrapped, at room temperature for up to two days, or frozen for up to a month.
