Cake Batter Pancakes

IMG_8129 (800x533)

Tomorrow’s my birthday so I thought I would share what I made for my hubby’s birthday last month because I’ll be making these again for my birthday. They where really tasty, the only changes I would make is to not fold in the sprinkles into the batter. It made it more of a tie die pancake. I would just sprinkle them in once you put the batter in the pan. Also I would use clear vanilla in the frosting so it will be more of nice white color.

For the Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar

Add additional milk until batter has the consistency of pancake batter. You can also add more cake mix if you want your pancakes to have a stronger cake batter flavor.

Pour batter in 1/4 cup measurements onto skillet and let cook until bubbles form on top, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for 1 minute more. Serve with vanilla glaze (recipe follows).

For vanilla glaze: mix powdered sugar, butter, and vanilla and milk until glaze forms. You may need to add a little more milk to reach desired consistency so that it can be drizzled. Mix into glaze and drizzle on pancakes.

    They look good, but I'd only need to eat them on a special occasion.
