Birthday breakfast celebration
Hello everyone! I’m Erin from Delightful E Made. Today, I’m going to share a version of a recipe I made for my family on a special morning-Funfetti pancakes! My family loves pancakes, these fun colorful cakes are perfect for birthday morning or any other morning you want to celebrate!
They are even perfect for vacations and can be changed according to the sprinkler you use. Usually, we like to use Jimmies, which are soft sprinklers and work well in this recipe.
Trust us when we say there is no better way to start your birthday than these fun pancakes!
How to make birthday pancakes
They are very easy to make, just use some simple ingredients that you may already have in the pantry and refrigerator. The batter will come together very quickly, add skittles and stir at the end, and you will make some very beautiful breakfasts!
Batter. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients—flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Use a whisk to mix well.
In the dry ingredients, add milk, oil, eggs and vanilla and stir until smooth. Finally, stir in the vanilla and sprinkle.
Cook. On a hot, greased baking pan, scoop the batter into 4-inch pancakes. Once the cake starts to bubble, it’s time to turn it over. Once all sides are golden brown, the pancake is ready. Enjoy the pancakes while hot.
This recipe can make about 12-14 4-inch pancakes. When you don’t have time to make a batch, these are perfect for packing, freezing and reheating on a busy morning.
Should there be lumps in my batter? Absolutely! Find a happy place between the big blocks and no blocks. Over-mixing will take away the fluffy texture that we all love.
Tips for pancakes
- Let the batter sit before cooking. This will give the gluten time to relax and make soft pancakes.
- Use soft cylinder sprinkles (jimmies)
- Make sure the pan temperature is right; about 375 degrees. It’s too hot, the outside will burn before the center is completed. It’s too cold and the pancakes will harden.
Leftovers. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. You can also wrap them in plastic wrap, freeze and reheat them.
Cooking and flipping pancakes
How can I make pancakes non-stick?
- Use a heavy pot. The thin frying pan cannot distribute the heat very evenly, causing the pancakes to stick together. If you make pancakes consistently, I suggest you buy an electric bakeware.
- Use butter or cooking spray. Since pancakes absorb butter, make sure to add a little butter as needed.
When should I turn the pancakes? Here are some pancake flip tips:
- When the edges start to cook and the batter is foaming in the center.
- You can peek at the bottom to see if it has started to turn beautiful golden yellow.
- You should only flip it once, so don’t flip it too fast.
- The second side cooks faster than the first side.
- Don’t press on the pancakes. It will not help it cook faster, it will only flatten them.
How do I keep the pancakes warm? Place pancakes on a baking sheet in an oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit to keep them warm. Don’t cover them, because the steam will make them soaked. Before they start to dry out, just put them in the oven for about 30 minutes.
Shape it! Enjoy the pancake shapes your kids will love! You can invest in pancake molds, just like cookie cutters. You can also put the batter into a squeeze bottle and create your own shapes, such as children’s initials, hearts, squares, simple animals such as Mickey Mouse and fish.
Celebrate any occasion
I also made these pancakes for the first day of summer vacation, the first day of school, Father’s Day and many snowy mornings. (We already have a few this winter!) They seem to instantly brighten up the morning and put a smile on your face-I firmly believe that sprinkling can produce this effect! 😉
I like to sprinkle whipped cream and more icing sugar on the pancakes (of course!), but you can also sprinkle flavored syrup, regular maple syrup, buttermilk syrup, or even frosting on the cake!
Serve your funfetti pancakes with bacon or sausage, and put some scrambled eggs on the side, you will enjoy the most delicious breakfast! !
Next time you want to celebrate a special day, or when your family celebrates a birthday, mix these simple Funfetti pancakes-they are sure to put a smile on everyone’s face!
