"IT'S NATIONAL PANCAKE DAY!!!!"
So I continue to scurry around the house in a frenzy, give up on fixing my hair, and run to the store with the baby, looking a hot mess. And if you know me at all, you know that I have a severe history of big hair. I assure you today was no different; it was large and not so in charge which is why I was trying to restrain it with no such luck. Normally I would take that as a sign that I don't need to leave the house but not today. Oh no, not on pancake day.
Cake Batter Pancakes with Cream Cheese Glaze
1 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cup yellow cake mix
1 tbs sugar
3/4 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 cups milk *start with 1 cup and gradually add more if needed*
Combine cake mix, flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar in a large bowl. Add the eggs, vanilla and milk, stirring til smooth. You want this to be like regular pancake batter so add more milk if needed so it isn't too thick. Preheat a skillet or griddle to medium heat. Fold desired amount of sprinkles into batter. Spoon about 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet at a time. Cook until bubbles form on top, about 2-3 minutes, then flip. Cook for another minute or two. Serve topped with glaze.
Cream Cheese Glaze
3 oz cream cheese, room temp
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla
3-4 tbs milk
Beat first 4 ingredients til smooth. Gradually add milk til thinned to your desired consistency

PS if you're wondering if it was worth the frenzy and fury, the answer is yes it was.
