It's also Friday..... Pancake making is reserved for Saturday.
White flour is rarely used in our house..... I save that for desserts.
Artificial food coloring is something we use to color eggs with..... It's typically not something we consume internally.
So when my 5 year old daughter woke up requesting pancakes..... I was quick to remind her or what day of the week it was.
Still, she begged...... I gave in.
(Don't judge me.....YOU try and turn down a cute little girl with a head of blonde curls and pink glasses!)
So being April Fools Day I decided to go all out...... white flour, refined sugar, and artificial food coloring.
Needless to say, my kids were thrilled.
Sprinkle 'Tie-Dye' Pancakes
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 3/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 /2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 tablespoon or so of sprinkles
enough water to make into a desired consistency
For the pancake batter: Mix the first 5 ingredients together in a large bowl and whisk. Mix the wet together and stir into the dry ingredients. Add a tablespoon or so of sprinkles. Stir.
Pour onto a hot, oiled griddle and cook on both sides. Top with frosting.
These became such a hit I think I'll make them our new 'birthday morning pancakes'.
