Cake Batter Pancakes

Last week on Whisking Wednesdays Sweet Luvin in the Kitchen linked up a cake batter pancake recipe.  The second I saw it I was drooling!  So I went out today to pick up the boxed cake mix to make this since I don't normally have that kind of thing on hand.  I don't think I've actually bought or used a box cake mix in years.  This was so totally worth it and made me so happy I went out and bought that cake mix.  I bought funfetti cake mix since it already has sprinkles in it and then just bought some extra sprinkles to sprinkle over the top.  It was amazing!  I definitely will be making this again and again!  I made just a few minor modifications to the recipe went I threw it together today.  I seem to just start throwing things into a bowl and write it down later what I did.  I'm not overly big on measuring at times!  So this recipe is definitely worth trying, it won't disappoint.  

Cake Batter Pancakes

1 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. yellow cake mix
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 eggs
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 1/2 c. buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine flour, cake mix, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl and whisk to combine. Add eggs, oil, buttermilk and vanilla and whisk until just barely combined, allowing lumps to remain, don't overmix.  You want the batter to be just like regular pancake batter, add more milk if it is too thick.  Allow the batter to rest 10 minutes.  Pour onto hot griddle by 1/4 c. measuring cup.  You can add sprinkle to your batter if you wish.  Cook each pancake until you see bubbles starting to form on top and then flip and cook on the other side for a few minutes.  Top with syrup and more sprinkles.

  2. I know I totally made these for lunch today because I just couldn't help it, I had to try them! So worth it. Thanks for stopping in!

  3. I bet my daughter would love these --- one of her favorite ice creams is "take the cake."

  4. Hmmm those pancakes look amazing! I love boxed cake mix!

  5. I like the sound of this a lot. I always have boxed cake mix but I can get it so cheaply. Plus, it's just a good thing to have in the pantry. I'll bet it makes wonderful pancakes. Thanks for the idea and for sharing on A Well-Seasoned Life's Sweet Indulgences Sunday!
