This morning I wanted to do a fun little post to celebrate meeting my sweet husband 8 years ago today. Crazy to think how fast time flies by! We met the second day of school, after moving into the dorms at Elon University. I am all for celebrating anything because life deserves a celebration! So, whether you're celebrating back to school (I think that deserves a celebration - don't you?!); or adorable babies being born; or a new engagement; or to simply celebrate that the week is almost over - it is totally your call! But, be sure to celebrate something just for you today... And maybe try out these super easy to make funfetti pancakes!
For pancakes, you'll need:
- (2) eggs
- (1) cup of funfetti cake mix (or you could use yellow cake mix.. any brand will work)
- (1) cup of pancake mix (any brand)
- (1) cup of mix
- Rainbow sprinkles
For the glaze, you'll need:
- (2) teaspoons of vanilla
- (2) tablespoons of unsalted butter (melted)
- (3) tablespoons of milk
- (2-3) cups of powdered sugar
- depending on the consistency of the glaze you're going for
Directions: Start with the pancakes. Place all the ingredients for the pancakes in a bowl and whisk until blended. But it's okay if a few lumps and clumps are in the batter. Scoop about 3/4 of the batter onto a skillet or into a pan - I used a griddle here. Bake like a regular pancake. This will yield about 8-10 pancakes. For the glaze, you'll just mix the butter, vanilla and milk with the beaters while you slowly add in powdered sugar. Add powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached. Drizzle the glaze over warm pancakes and serve.
What will you celebrate this week?! Hope you enjoy the recipe. This yummy treat will definitely be a new tradition within our family's celebrations.
