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.
2 cups milk
2t baking powder
1t baking soda
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!
