Cake Batter Pancakes June 30, 2012

I’ve been wanting to try out this recipe for a long time, but I never seemed to have cake mix on hand.  Well, I’m making cake batter rice krispie treats tomorrow (stay tuned), so I happened to have a box of yellow cake, so today is the day!

 

 

The girls really enjoyed these pancakes. My 22 month old pretty much just licked off the glaze.  My 4-year-old opted for syrup.  I have to say that I thought these were amazing; however, for breakfast, the glaze made them too sweet for breakfast.  I think these cake batter pancakes are great for a special occasion, but not for a routine breakfast.  We will make them again, possibly for my daughter’s birthday.  Also, these would be an awesome dessert.  I’m thinking warm pancakes, with vanilla ice cream on top with the whipped cream and cherry on top!

Here are a few notes about the recipe.  The recipe says it makes 12 pancakes and I came close with 14.  I used 1 cup of milk (the recipe calls for 1-2 cups) and I thought my pancakes were to thick; however, 1 cup was probably right for the recipe since I yielded close to 12 pancakes.  Next time, I will add more milk to get a thinner pancake.  My glaze turned out way to thick.  I added more milk until the consistency was just right.

This recipe has inspired me to try other new pancake recipes.  Maybe I’ll try another next week!

Time:  30 minutes

Substitutions:  I added some whipped cream and a cherry on top!  Also, my glaze came out too thick, so I added more and more milk until it was just right!
