Pancakes aren’t just for breakfast and brinner in our house. Pancakes are the first meal my kids all learned to make. Even the twins, who are almost three, have already mixed their first batch of pancake batter.
We haven’t let them near the stove yet, but they have mad stirring skills. They even helped make these oh so easy Red Hot Cinnamon Pancakes!
I highly recommend pancakes are your child’s first kitchen experience. A bowl and spoon are safe, very few ingredients are needed, and dumping measuring cups is easy for little hands.
Not only that, a pile of pancakes on a plate puts a smile on a face. Warm fluffiness covered in syrupy goodness….tell me you’re not smiling?
Red Hot Cinnamon Pancakes
with Whipped Cream
Our go-to for breakfast every weekend, and we’ve enjoyed many holiday-themed pancake breakfast as well. Aunt Jemima makes all of those breakfasts SO easy, like these Red Hot Cinnamon Pancakes with whipped cream!
All you need are a bowl, water, and box of Aunt Jemima Original Complete Pancake Mix to get started.
Once you have your pancake batter mixed up, pour in 1/2 cup of cinnamon candies and mix together. The batter will start to turn pink which is a really cool bonus!
Now you are ready to get cooking! Size of the pancakes depends on your preference, but I like to scoop out 1/4 cup of batter for my pancakes. I cook the first side until the bubbles are popping on the top and the edges are starting to cook. Then I flip over for another minute.
Once all your Red Hot Cinnamon Pancakes are cooked, place three on a plate and top with Aunt Jemima Original Syrup, a dollop of whipped cream, and a few more cinnamon candies for good measure.
The cinnamon candies soften up a bit so they aren’t super hard to bite into. Plus, the syrup mixing with the whipped cream and cinnamon flavor is heavenly. Basically, it shouldn’t take those smiles long to spread across the faces of anyone you serve these Red Hot Cinnamon Pancakes too!
Not only are pancakes a great “first recipe” for kids, but they are also great for unleashing creativity in the kitchen. It’s so simple to make delicious pancakes with your own twist.
Especially when you have an easy mix like Aunt Jemima, who brings the family to the table for moments of joy and happiness. The holidays are about spending quality time with loved ones, so don’t stress yourself out with over the top holiday breakfasts.
Sharing these Red Hot Cinnamon Pancakes with you has made me want to whip up another batch with my twins! There is something magical about kids in the kitchen.
Their eyes light up as they see recipes coming together and they’re so proud of themselves when the creation is complete. Confidence is building, bonding is happening, and fostering an early love for delicious food is put in place. All of that can happen over something as simple as a bowl of pancake batter.
