Hump Day Snack: Christmas Tree Pancakes

By: Amanda Marsteller

It's a little known fact that pancakes are the most versatile breakfast food around. To prove it, serve up this towering stack of tree-shaped pancakes at the Christmas morning breakfast table and wait for the applause to start. Part of a blog called The Pancake Project, this edible Christmas tree is assembled with the help of a squeeze bottle filled with batter, which allows for artful pancake shaping on a griddle. The owner of the blog has experimented with endless pancake colors and shapes, creating realistic 3D replicas of foods, animals and well-known artworks with just a squeeze bottle and a little food coloring. Test your own pancake prowess by griddling up this fluffy and festive stack and get inspired with some of Cooking Channel's holiday-worthy pancake recipes:
