Cake Batter Pancakes

We now interrupt this weight loss plan to bring you something really, awesomely bad.  My friend posted a link a few days ago to these amazing-looking cake batter pancakes.  I've had them in my head for days and at precisely 7:17pm, I decided we were having brinner (breakfast for dinner) and that these must be part of it.

I pulled up the original recipe with the pretty, pretty pictures taken in a beautiful natural morning light (which makes everything look better), put on some Radiohead, and started dancing around my kitchen like Thom Yorke.  The recipe was super easy to prepare with very basic ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.   I cut it in half because there's only two of us, and what do you do with leftover pancakes?

The results were great.  I was a little low on sprinkles, but I don't know how I could've handled any more sugary anything.  These puppies are even sweeter than I expected, and I expected it to be really, really sweet.  Next time I make them, I may add some blueberries to the batter to lighten it up a bit.

They would be a perfect, fun, birthday breakfast for your kiddos, your sweetheart, or yourself.
