Sprinkle Pancakes

It’s Sunday morning and we’re making breakfast. The kids are begging for something new and colorful. So, we grabbed the box of Fruity Pebbles cereal we were making an arts and crafts project with, mixed a cup into our go-to pancake batter (minus the sugar, vanilla and cinnamon) and had a really fun Sunday breakfast – Sprinkle Pancakes! It was a really fun way to make the kids smile this morning. 🙂

By the way, if you haven’t had it before, this cereal is incredibly sweet so it should replace all the normal sweet stuff you’d incorporate in the pancake (sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, etc…). You can top it with anything sweet that you want if you love sweets or nothing at all! They’re really are good straight from the pan.

Ps – If you’re super organized, you can make these ahead of time. They freeze great!

What’s your favorite Sunday breakfast food? I’d love to hear in the comments below. Happy cooking!

  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Fruity Pebbles cereal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • cooking spray


  1. Combine milk & vinegar in a measuring cup or bowl for 5 minutes (alternatively, you can use 3/4 cups store-bought buttermilk).
  2. Combine dry ingredients: flour, Fruity Pebbles, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Whisk egg and butter into “soured” milk. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon until lumps are gone. Don’t over mix!
  4. Pre-heat pan for 3-4 minutes over medium heat and spray 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.img_4523
