We are in love with how easy it is to prepare gourmet-style buttermilk pancakes using Southeastern Mills Buttermilk Pancake Mix. It is as easy as opening the package, pouring the flour into a jug, adding one cup of water, and voilà, ready to make mini pancakes. We decorated them, mimicking a Christmas wreath with homemade whipped cream and seasonal fruit.

Southeastern Mills baking and gravy mixes are must-haves in the kitchen!

We enjoy the versatility of the Southeastern Mills as we can prepare more than biscuits and gravy. There are many unconventional ways to use the Southeastern Mills mixes. We like to get creative in the kitchen using seasonal ingredients, and that is how the Christmas wreath mini pancakes came together.

Small plates with berries, grapes, pomegranate seeds, and lemon basil

Include in your list beautiful berries, such as raspberries and blueberries. Plus green grapes and pomegranates.

We used germinated sweet lemon basil from our garden to garnish the buttermilk pancakes. But if you cannot find it, use mint leaves instead.

Step by step on how to prepare the whipped cream

The whipped cream for decorating the Christmas wreath mini pancakes requires to be stiff for piping and creating a nice presentation. We used two piping bags and two tips (one French tip and one round tip).

The whipped cream comes together with heavy cream, vanilla, confectioner’s sugar, stabilizing or stiff components such as cornstarch, gelatin or agar-agar, pudding mix, or milk powder.

Spreading butter to the warm hotcakes

Before decorating the buttermilk pancakes, place them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Keep them moist by spreading some butter and allowing them to cool. This will prevent the whipped cream from melting.

For making the whipped cream

  • Sift the confectioners' sugar before using.
  • Place the mixing bowl and the whipping tool for a few minutes. Another option is to create a double chiller adding ice to a big bowl, and chill by placing the mixing bowl and the whipping cream tool on top. Make sure to keep the heavy cream cold.
  • Pour the cold heavy cream into the chilled mixing bowl and whip on high until it doubles. Add the confectioners' sugar slowly. Then incorporate the vanilla powder and the cornstarch.

These mini pancakes remind me of Russian blinis although those are served with savoury toppings like caviar and smoked salmon! The fresh fruit and whipped cream is a fabulous idea, very pretty and very festive!
