Cakespy: Funfetti Pancakes
Jessie Oleson (aka Cakespy) drops by every Monday to share a delicious dessert recipe. —The Mgmt.
Fact: half of the word "pancake" is comprised of the word "cake". Actually, if you want to get really technical, it's slightly more than half.
And in celebration of bringing more cake to the pan, I'd like to present my newest invention: Funfetti Pancakes.
By lightly modifying a typical cake mix, you can make your own DIY pancake mix; the resulting pancakes are light and fluffy, but sweeter (and in this case, more colorful) than the typical griddle fare. Top them with jam, syrup, or even cake frosting for a morning treat that tastes like sweet fun.
