Pancakes for the Weekend!

Make them extra special with this unusual twist, thanks to our buddette Betty Crocker:


(Betty calls them 'cake batter pancakes,' but that doesn't sound so good to me. They sure look tasty, though:

CAKE (er, batter) PANCAKES



1 cup Original Bisquick™ mix
1 cup Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow cake mix
3 tablespoons candy sprinkles
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs

Glaze and Garnish

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Additional candy sprinkles


  • 1 Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375°F; grease with cooking spray, vegetable oil or shortening. (Surface is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it dance and disappear.)
  • 2 In medium bowl, stir together pancake ingredients until blended. Pour by slightly less than 1/4 cupfuls onto hot griddle. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until pancakes are golden brown. Stack on serving plates.
  • 3 In small bowl, beat powdered sugar, milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla with whisk until smooth.
  • 4 To serve, top each serving with glaze and additional candy sprinkles.
