Sprinkle Pancakes

Who doesn't love sprinkles? Seriously, I think sprinkles make most things look more fun, especially to kids. This past week my third child turned one! While he was pretty much unaware that it was an exciting day celebrating his birthday my other two children loved all the excitement. To start the day I made these pancakes, and not only did my kids love and eat them up, so did my husband! Chances are you have most of these ingredients so even if it isn't someone's birthday they can be a fun breakfast any day, especially those mornings that are super gloomy.

1 3/4 cups flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup sprinkles or chocolate chips
3 tablespoons butter

  • Mix flour, baking powder salt, sugar, milk and eggs together in a bowl.
  • Over medium heat, melt butter in a medium size pan.
  • In a small bowl transfer 3 large heaping tablespoons of pancake batter and mix in 1 tablespoon sprinkles. This will allow the sprinkles to be mixed throughout the pancake instead of only sitting on top. You do not want the sprinkles sitting in the batter for a long time otherwise they will bleed.
  • Drop batter in pan by the tablespoon in order to make 3 or 4 separate pancakes, make them as small or as large you want. Allow to cook on one side for 1-2 minutes before flipping. You can tell when the pancake is ready to be flipped when a lot of bubbles start to appear in the uncooked side of the pancake. Cook the other side for 1-2 minutes.
  • Continue until the batter is all used up. Serve warm. Leftovers keep well refrigerated or frozen and reheat well in the toaster.
