Cake Batter Pancakes

I'm not really a breakfast food type of gal.  I'll eat things like bacon, eggs, and biscuits, but I'd just as soon have a PB&J.  The stars must have aligned, though, because I woke up early this morning at noon with breakfast on the brain.  But not just any breakfast- cake batter pancakes!  How could I resist a pancake recipe that includes a heapin' helpin' of Betty Crocker Super Moist?



My husband and I both enjoyed the pancakes quite a lot.  We were not a fan of the glaze though.  (I have a sweet tooth the size of Jupiter, but pure powdered sugar + a splash of milk was just too much for me.  I tossed the glaze and went for my standard Aunt Jemima Lite.

From How Sweet It Is
Makes about 12 pancakes

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup yellow cake mix
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-2 cups milk (see directions)
assorted sprinkles

DIRECTIONS

1.  Combine flour, cake mix, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl and mix.

2.  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.

2.  Preheat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Fold desired amount of sprinkles into batter. 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.
