This week my kids were craving pancakes for dinner (like always!) so I thought I’d try something new and special. These pancakes are made like traditional pancakes but with a twist. By adding some sugar cookie mix I had on hand these pancakes turned from normal to a birthday party in your mouth! They are definitely sweeter than normal pancakes so I wouldn’t make them everyday but they are prefect for a special treat. I added sprinkles to mine but you could leave those out or sub for chocolate chips or blueberries! Also, the batter is slightly thicker than normal pancakes so make them thinner on the griddle and keep the heat a speck lower than you’d think. They took a bit longer to cook.
- 1½ c. all purpose flour
- 1 c. sugar cookie mix (I used Pillsbury)
- ½ T sugar
- ¼ t. salt
- 1 t baking powder
- ¼ t baking soda
- 1 c. half and half
- ¾ c. milk
- 2 T melted unsalted butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 t vanilla extract
- ¼ c. rainbow sprinkles
- Mix together the dry ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.
- Combine the eggs, milk, half and half, melted butter and vanilla in a small bowl. Mix well.
- Pour the liquid mix into the dry ingredients and stir well. The batter will be slightly lumpy but be sure to mix out any clumps! Stir in the sprinkles.
- Heat a griddle over medium heat and spray with non-stick spray. Cook each pancake for 3-4 mins on each side over a medium-low heat.
- This recipe made 24 medium sized pancakes.
Needless to say, my kids ate these up in no time and wanted more. We will definitely be making them again as a special treat!
