confetti pancakes

Since Mack started school this year, we have a new tradition. Every Saturday we have pancakes for breakfast. It wasn't an intentional decision...it just kind of happened. But now it's a full-on tradition. So much so that when Aunt Korie and Uncle Chris stayed with the kids in February, Piper had a meltdown when she realized pancakes were not on the menu Saturday morning. Never you fear...Uncle Chris saved the day when he soothed her with chocolate milk. :)

Today I thought it would be fun to add confetti to the pancakes...somehow that just screams Easter! I use a recipe my Aunt Pam gave me for pancakes...I think it's from the Betty Crocker Cookbook?? It's fabulous. Best pancakes ever.

Confetti Pancakes 

2 cups milk
2 eggs
4T oil
4T sugar
2t vanilla
2t baking powder
1t baking soda
1t salt
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sprinkles

Whisk the milk, eggs, oil, vanilla and sugar until blended. Add the baking powder, baking soda and salt and whisk until blended and a little frothy. Add the flour, 1/2 cup at a time, and whisk until smooth and blended (but don't over whisk!). Add the sprinkles and whisk just until mixed in. Use your favorite method to cook the pancakes...I like to use my griddle at 400 degrees...perfect every time!

The pancakes look yummy - - - but I haven't eaten pancakes in YEARS 'cause they trigger up all my acid issues.
