Luke 2: 10-11
And the angel said unto them, Fear not:
for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy,
which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day
in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

I first was introduced to her via Muffin Tin Mom when she posted a Bunny Pancake Tutorial for Easter. Since then I have been a faithful follower of Jenni Price Illustration and am always so excited to see what she is working on next. Whether it be amazing pancakes, perfect painted fondant, or her super sweet paintings/cards you can buy, everything is done to perfection.
So please enjoy this wonderful Christmas tutorial. How fabulous would it be for your kids to wake to this breakfast treat on Christmas? I'm going to give it a try for my girls, let me know if you do too!
Griddle or large skillet
Pam Cooking Spray
Large mixing bowl
Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix (the just add water mix)
Three Condiment Squirt Bottles (can be found at Walmart)
green and yellow soft gel paste food coloring
Spoons for mixing
mini chocolate chips and mini M&Ms for decorating
Get out your large bowl and stir with a spoon 2 cups plus 1-3 Tbsp of pancake mix with 1 ½ cups of water. You want your batter thick enough to “draw” with but not too much where it wont squeeze out of the squirt bottle (you can add more pancake mix if it's too runny). Grab your electric mixer and stir until it's well blended. If you have too many lumps, they will clog up your squirt bottle.
Divide up your batter into three mixing cups. Refer to the above squirt bottle graphic for a rough idea on how much pancake batter should be in each squirt bottle. Mix in a small amount of green food coloring (a little bit goes a long way) into one cup, yellow into another cup and the white has no color in it. Mix each color until well blended. Pour each cup of batter slowly into the squirt bottles making sure to keep paper towels handy for any drips.
Spray your griddle with cooking spray but do not turn it on yet. Keep toothpicks nearby to release any
clogs in the squirt bottles.
Step One: With the yellow batter, draw the angel's hair.
Step Two: Switch to the white batter and draw the angel's face and a dot for her nose.
Step Three: Using the green batter, draw her dress but leave room for her arm.
Step Four: Draw her arm with the green batter, then switch to the white batter and draw a large dot for her hand and a little dot to represent her thumb.
Step Five: Taking the green batter, draw her wings off to the side. Do not connect them to the angel as it will make it tricky to flip the pancake.
Step Six: Turn your griddle on to the lowest heat setting (200 degrees) and let the outlines cook until they are puffed up. Now turn off your griddle. Take your green batter and fill in the angel's dress.
Step Seven: Take your yellow batter and fill in the angel's hair and draw a halo above her head.
Step Eight: Switch to the white batter and fill in the angel's face and wings. Turn your griddle back on to the lowest heat setting (200 degrees) and let your angel, wings and halo cook until they are bubbly and loose most of their shine before flipping them. When your pancake is fully cooked, decorate the angel with mini M&Ms and place a mini chocolate chip on her face to represent an eye.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved.
