Pancakes for dessert? These pancakes made from cake batter are great for kids and adults!
1 box Yellow cake mix
1⅓ cup water
⅓ cup vegetable oil
½ cup rainbow or chocolate sprinkles
Follow the directions on the back of the yellow cake mix box to make the batter, whisking the cake mix, eggs, water and oil with a until smooth.
Then add the sprinkles! You can add as many or as little as you want. You can use any type of sprinkles you want. The options are endless!
Preheat a nonstick skillet over medium heat (you can also use a griddle if you have one) with cooking spray. Then ladle 1/4 cup of the cake batter in the skillet using a measuring cup. Another option would be to use an ice cream scoop so all of your pancakes are the same size.
Once bubbles begin to form on top of the cakes, flip them and cook for another minute or so. All done! Now serve and watch the pancakes disappear.
A very important tip: don’t press down on the cakes after you flip them! The natural instinct is to press down on them, but you will just be pushing the air out and the cakes won’t be as fluffy and light.
