Birthday Week; Rainbow Sprinkle Pancakes

Since this is Bunny's first birthday, we were able to start all the fun birthday traditions we wanted. We figured the best one we could do would be a fun breakfast since Bunny is such a fan of food. So I made some applesauce pancakes by following the recipe posted below. I omitted the vanilla and used GoGoSqueeze's apple banana applesauce and it turned out very well, if i do say so myself.

This process required a nice big glass of viognier because, well, my baby is about to be a year old. Is this real life?


I mixed the sprinkles right into the batter. Not a good idea. Maybe if I had used larger sprinkles or at least different ones, it would have been alright. These, however, just sort of melted into the mix. So I added more on top once they were in the pan, as you can see in the picture above.


 Still, though, you can hardly tell they're there. Note to self; Bigger sprinkles are better sprinkles.

Once they were done, I put them into a tupperware container and stuck them in the refrigerator. Simple! Here is the recipe so you can make them for your little one (or yourself)!

Ingredients (serves 6)

1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups applesauce
Sift flour, salt and baking powder into a medium mixing bowl.
Combine butter, milk and egg. 
Stir into dry ingredients.  
Add vanilla (unless using flavored applesauce) and applesauce; beat well.
Spoon batter into a hot, well greased griddle.


Now where is that wine?

  1. Pancakes are such a great idea for kids! Ryan loves pancakes! I tried them with apple and cinnamon recently, and he loved those. Maybe if you sprinkle the sprinkles on top of the pancakes after you pour the batter onto the pan it will work better. We do that with the chocolate chips sometimes.
