FUNFETTI SUNDAY BRUNCH PANCAKES

Happy Sunday Funday Lovelies! We are already halfway the first month of 2019 and it’s exciting to  see how fast the days are going! I love Sundays! It is just one of those lazy days that you want breakfast in bed with some soothing music and yummy scents coming from the kitchen. Dreams are valid yo! If you are single like me, then you will just have to give yourself that breakfast in bed and enjoy it all by thyself, which is fun most times, especially when you have made yourself this decadent obsessively good apple cinnamon french toast and you absolutely  DO NOT want to share! Today I just woke up with a craving for some pancakes, I have several pancake recipes that you can find all over the blog, I needed something different. And since I was feeling festive and saw some rainbow sprinkles staring at me in the kitchen, I knew what I had to do. These funfetti pancakes are fluffy, pillowy and exciting to bite into! We all want to get fluffy pancakes so here are a few tips I have learnt in making pancakes. To get fluffy pancakes include
baking powder or baking soda in pancake batter since this will create essential
bubbles that are crucial in giving you that fluffy feel.  Eggs enable the batter to rise since they provide
the pancakes with structure while butter not only adds flavor but give the
pancakes moisture and a smooth richness. Do not over mix your pancake batter if
you want fluffy pancakes and let you batter rest before using, you can even refrigerate
for a few minutes before cooking. The best way to ensure your pancakes are
fluffy is not using too much heat, since they will burn yet the middle in raw,
if too low the pancakes will end up being tough and rubbery.

INGREDIENTS

2/3 Cup Rainbow Sprinkles
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Essence
2 1/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
5 Tablespoons Melted Butter

In a large mixing bowl add and sieve the flour, baking
powder, sugar, and salt. Mix briefly until blended
In a medium bowl whisk together the wet ingredients, melted
butter, eggs, milk, and vanilla essence
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients until a
smooth batter is formed, don’t be afraid of a few lumps
Gently fold the rainbow sprinkles into the pancake batter
until just combined. Careful not to stir the mixture, this is to avoid
sprinkles melting into the batter before being cooked
On medium high heat, add a ladleful or ¼ cup of pancake
batter on nonstick pan and allow the pancakes to cooks without any disturbance
until small bubbles start to appear on top. Once the surfaces has become shiny/
silky flip the pancake and cook the second side until golden brown
Repeat until all the batter has finished
You can serve the pancakes with chocolate, maple syrup or
whipped cream, or ice cream. I was too excited I had mine just as they were,
still delicious!
