31 Pins in 31 Days-Day Two

Here's the pin that inspired today's post

This pin is brought to you by How Sweet Eats

I pinned it about a week ago and on my way home from work today, I got a sudden craving for pancakes and knew that I wanted them to be extra special.  Pancakes are kinda a big deal in our house and Michael has "His Top Secret Recipe" that makes a regular appearance and I like to make Joy the Baker's Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes.  We also don't believe that pancakes are just for breakfast.

We are all about pancakes for brunch and brinner.  We don't discriminate in this house.

So I decided to throw these Cake Batter Pancakes into our recipe mix and make these for brinner.

I didn't have a yellow cake mix like the recipe called for, so I substituted with a white cake mix.  I'm really thinking that any cake mix would do as long as it is light so the sprinkles show up.

These came together quickly and I love how the batter wasn't so crazy thin that they spread too much on the griddle. 

Look at that sprinkley*ness.

I stacked the pancakes all pretty like and  used the glaze recipe that she posted along with the pancake recipe. I can't imagine pairing them with anything else.  Maple Syrup just wouldn't seem to fit (imo) and the glaze wasn't so heavy that you felt that you were just licking the inside of a sugar bowl.

I also threw on some more sprinkles because well...can you really have too many?

Everyone in our house agreed that these were DIVINE!!!  Honestly.  They are super good.  This recipe is good enough to be next to our regular two recipes in my recipe binder and will definitely make more appearances on our dinner table.

And like she says in her post, these don't have to be made for a birthday or other celebration.

 Isn't every day supposed to be a celebration?  Sprinkle up then :)


  1. wow!!! I can't imagine, but I will take your word for it, so trying these!
