Alphabet Boys Christmas Brunch~

We're having our family for Christmas daughter is doing Christmas Eve(bless her heart)..I usually make the same thing every year..A little Muesli Yogurt Parfait.. a breakfast make- ahead dish..pecan praline bacon.. Mimosas.. the usual fare.. sometimes smoked salmon.. chesses.. pâté

But I have a little treat for the Alphabet Boys ..

You can use any recipe for pancakes..I loved Jamie Oliver's recipe watching Poppy and Daisy make you know you can make them ahead of time..pancakes.. freeze them..then warm in the oven?

Cause there's no way you can get everything done Christmas morn~
I think they will love these..

All the way here from California these molds are:)

I made them in my electric skillet..I could do 2 at a time..

And they didn't burn..nice even cooking..

They are so cute..if you have little ones..I recommend these..I would have never found them here..
Call me Grateful~.

Jamie's recipe is so easy..One cup self rising cup egg.. a pinch of salt..add fruit if you want:)I love his Christmas Specials..LOVE them. His darling family is just so sweet.And he's pretty neat too:)


  1. Looks delicious! I enjoyed watching Jamie and his family!!! Love your little bear in a shoe! This year I made tiny elf shoes to hang on the tree...maybe next year I can make more, they were very popular and I didn't make myself any, like always!
    Merry Christmas and all the best for a fun filled holiday for your sweet family!
    Thank you for sharing all your wonderful recipes, I know I have added many to my Christmas baking.

    So cute! I have never heard of pancake molds and I never thought of making pancakes ahead of time and freezing. What a great time saver!

  4. Thanks for the pancake tips...

    didn't know you can freeze and warm them up and would still taste good.

    They are so cute, even I would love to have them for my Christmas day breakfast:)

  5. Adorable! The child in us all would love to sit down to a plate of warm pancakes. Grandma's are special. Happy Holidays, Monique!

  6. you make everything so special, you always warm my heart~

  7. So beautiful..the perfect nana you are~

  8. Photos splendides... j'aime particulièrement celles avec le petit ours... Il fait très espiègle et j'adore... tout comme vos friandises... (grrrr. je suis allergique au gluten, mais je peux faire parfois quelques folies!)

  9. Cute! I love them.

    Happy holidays!



  10. Adorable pancakes and I know the boys will love them. So pretty dusted with snow :)

    Have a wonderful Christmas, Monique!

  11. What a cute idea to have a pancake with a shape! Here's wishing you and yours a merry, happy Christmas!

  12. Oh, these are darling. I freeze pancakes all the time. Now I need to get some cute shapes. ;-)

  15. The kids are going to LOVE these! They must beg to come to Nana's house.

    I used to make pancakes for my kids birthday breakfast by pouring the batter into the shape of the number of their age. I wish I had these molds for Christmas morning. How sweet of Jain to send these!

    Merry Christmas!!!
