Cake Batter Pancakes

From the moment I saw these Cake Batter Pancakes on How Sweet It Is, I knew I had to make them! I figured they'd be the perfect treat to start a Saturday morning and they certainly didn't disappoint.

As Jessica suggests, I definitely had to do some tweaking to this recipe to get it just right. I ended up adding about 1/4 cup more cake batter and used about 1 3/4 cups milk in the pancake batter. I also choose to thin out the glaze considerably (I wanted something very thin and pourable and not too terribly sweet), using about 1/4 cup milk total. This recipe is all about personal preference; you decide how intense you'd like the cake flavor in your pancakes and how thick or think you'd prefer your glaze. I'd suggest using Jessica's recipe as a staring point and tweaking as you go to suit your tastes.

The hubby and I enjoyed these pancakes by themselves for breakfast, but thought their sweetness would be best rounded out when served with a savory item or two. These pancakes have such a whimsical charm and they'd be perfect for a birthday breakfast or for feeding a bunch of hungry kids. If you're a fan of cake batter flavored treats, I most definitely recommend these pancakes!
