Cake Batter Pancakes
Cake Batter Pancakes. Perfect for any special occasion, and dessert for breakfast absolutely counts.
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
⅔ cup yellow cake mix
1 tablespoon sugar
¾ teaspoon baking powder
⅛ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-2 cups milk (varies depending on cake mix)
½ cup assorted sprinkles
For The Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
½ tablespoon milk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
extra assorted sprinkles
Mix milk, extract, and powdered sugar until glaze forms.
You may need to add a little more sugar or water/milk to reach desired consistency.
Mix into glaze and drizzle on pancakes. Top with extra sprinkles.
Combine flour, cake mix, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a bowl and mix. Add 1 cup of milk, egg, and vanilla extract and stir until smooth. You want the batter to look like regular pancake batter; not too thin, not too thick.
This will vary greatly on the brand of cake mix you use. Start with 1 cup of milk and add more if needed.
Preheat a skillet on medium heat (I use an electric grilled and turn it to 275 degrees). Fold desired amount of sprinkles into the batter.
Pour batter in ¼ cup measurements onto the skillet and let cook until bubbles form on top, about 2-3 minutes.
Flip and cook for 1 minute more. Serve with vanilla glaze.
We like to eat ours hot with butter and powdered sugar (you can mix these into a delicious combo of melted goodness) but you can also serve it with the glaze if you want an extra special syrup.
*Because at this point, we really need more sugar*
