    Servings and Ingredients

    For the pancakes:
    1 c. Hodgson Mill buckwheat pancake mix
    ¾ c. Hy-Vee skim milk
    1 Hy-Vee egg
    1 ½ tbsp. Hy-Vee cooking oil
    Hy-Vee non-stick cooking spray
    To assemble Santa's Favorite pancakes, you'll also need:
    2 slice(s) cooked bacon per pancake
    2 chocolate chips per pancake
    1 fresh raspberry per pancake
    Hy-Vee whipped cream

    Things To Grab


      1. Prepare pancakes by placing pancake mix into mixing bowl; add milk and egg. Stir in vegetable oil. Mix until just blended. Let stand for 5 minutes.
      2. Preheat griddle or large skillet to 360 degrees. Lightly spray with Hy-Vee cooking spray. Griddle is ready when small drops of water sizzle and disappear almost immediately.
      3. Pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto the hot griddle, adding 2 separate spoonfuls additional batter to form “reindeer ears.” Cook 1 to 1-1/2 minutes and flip when edges appear cooked and bubbles form throughout the pancake. Cook additional 1 to 1-1/2 minutes on opposite side.
      4. Pour 1/8 cup onto griddle to form smaller pancake for reindeer face. Repeat cooking instructions of step 3.
      5. To assemble “Santa's Favorite” reindeer face-shaped pancake: Place 1 smaller pancake on top of larger pancake. Arrange bacon to look like antlers, raspberry for a red nose and two small dollops of whipped cream, each topped with a chocolate chip, for eyes.
