Hola, any confetti cake lovers here? Oh, what’s that?…umm, yes…you are right, I should probably rephrase the question and put it this way, Is there anyone who doesn’t love a good confetti cake? I definitely do. There is something so happy about a confetti cake, don’t you think? So colorful, so playful, just a fun cake altogether.
The little monkey loves pancakes and is now into colors and shapes, which led me into making these confetti pancakes using Fruity Pebbles cereal. The fruity pebbles add a lot of color and a faint punch of fruity flavor to these pancakes.
These make a perfect fun kiddie breakfast. A little something to brighten up your sleepy, cold mornings. I mean, how can you say no to these little cuties?
The original recipe makes a simple, plain pancake, which is quite good just like that. I always add a dash of vanilla extract and slightly more sugar/honey to the batter, though, for that extra flavor. These pancakes are tall, light and fluffy, and very easy to whip up. This recipe takes very well to adaptations. You can add anything from fruits to chocolate chips to well…fruity pebbles, and more.
Packing these off to Fiesta Friday at The Novice Gardener.
Fruity Pebble Pancakes
Original pancake recipe source: Allrecipes.com, altered.
3/4 cup milk
2 tbsp. white vinegar
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cups Fruity Pebbles
Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to sour.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg into the “soured” milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone. Fold in the Fruity Pebbles.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.
