Funfetti Cake Batter Pancakes

Fluffy homemade cake batter pancakes with rainbow sprinkles throughout, topped off with whipped cream.

Ingredients:

Pancakes:
1 1/2C all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 Tbsp granulated sugar
1/2C white or yellow cake mix
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 1/2C milk
3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
3-4 Tbsp rainbow sprinkles

Whipped cream:
3/4C heavy cream
2 Tbsp powdered sugar

Directions:

Prepare whipped cream in a medium bowl. Beat together heavy cream and powdered sugar until thickened and nearly stiff peaks form. Chill until ready to use.

Preheat an electric skillet to 350°F and lightly grease with vegetable oil.

In a large bowl, combine dry pancake ingredients, reserving sprinkles. In a medium bowl, combine wet ingredients. Slowly incorporate the wet mixture to the dry, using a whisk to combine. Stir until only small lumps remain. Stir in sprinkles.

Using a large cookie scoop, drop batter onto preheated skillet. Smooth out batter, creating a circle in an even layer. Cook for 3 minutes or until golden on the bottom and bubbling on top. Flip and cook for an additional 1 minute or until golden.

Serve and enjoy immediately with fresh whipped cream and extra sprinkles.
