By lightly modifying a typical cake mix, you can make your own DIY pancake mix and the resulting pancakes are light and fluffy, and sweeter than your typical boring pancake. Top them with jam, syrup, or even cake frosting for a morning treat that tastes like sweet fun.
Cake Mix Pancakes
Makes about 12 Pancakes
1/2 box of flavored cake mix
1 cup milk
1/2 cup flour, sifted
butter, for greasing your frying pan
Combine the dry cake mix with the remaining ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Blend on medium-low speed until the batter is fully incorporated, about 2 minutes.Prepare your frying pan by lightly greasing it with butter; let it heat up on a medium-high heat setting on your stove top. Drop the batter, 1/4 cup at a time, on to the prepared griddle. When the edges turn golden and are beginning to lightly bubble, flip the pancake and let the second side cook.
NOTES: You can see how fun this one could be to experiment with. Cake mixes are so inexpensive that you can keep your pantry stocked and play around with add ins and toppings. The original recipe was for Funfetti Pancakes and was adapted from Cakespy.
