My little girl told me they were the best thing she had ever eaten. She has never said that before and unless she is entering a stage where she compliments everything I make, I think she meant it. All of my boys thought they were great, too. It may or may not have had anything to do with the cream cheese "syrup" that I used on top. Cream cheese mixed with powdered sugar make a lot of things right in my world.
I did change the recipe slightly. I used a "funfetti" cake mix instead of yellow. I added a little bit of oil, cut out the extra sugar, and increased the baking powder. Oh, and I used a cream cheese based topping instead of a plain milk/powdered sugar glaze.
Cake Batter Pancakes: (see How Sweet It Is for the original recipe)
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup funfetti cake mix (any flavor would be great...even chocolate!)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup milk, plus more if needed3 Tbsp cream cheese
3 cups powdered sugar
enough milk to make "syrup" consistency
In a bowl, combine flour, cake mix, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, vanilla and 1 cup milk. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry. Add more milk, a little at a time, to get a good, thin pancake batter. Heat griddle and cook as you would normally cook pancakes. Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar in another bowl and slowly add milk to get a pourable, but thick glaze. Serve on top of pancakes. If you want, you can put extra sprinkles on top.
