Baked Kool Aid Pancakes

A daycare mom sent me a link for Kool Aid Pancakes one day and it took me months to remember to make them! They were colorful and interesting that's for sure! I made them a tad differently than the recipe because I BAKED THEM rather than the good ole flipping way. I had so many pancakes to make, but baking them was quick and painless and took waaayyyy less time. I'll definitely be baking pancakes again for breakfast.

However, even though these plates (and additional filled plates) were eaten up, they were not a breakfast favorite. Actually, hardly anyone ate any for breakfast. They complained they were sour. It wasn't until afternoon time that they were eaten up with berries and Cool Whip. In the morning I offered waffles with them as well. A few of the kids wrapped up a Kool Aid pancake or two in their waffle. They seemed to enjoy eating it that way!

Berries and Cool Whip seems to be the best way to serve these cakes.

I'm still unsure of the difference in the pancakes from pancakes vs. afternoon, but the kids LOVED them in the afternoon!

These are super easy to make, just follow the recipe in the link (at the top of the page) and add an additional 2-3 tbsp of pancake to the batter to thicken. Using 2 tbsp of batter to make each silver dollar pancake, space each out 1 inch apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 365 degrees for 8 - 10 minutes. You can easily use any flavor of Kool Aid packet you choose! The kid's favorites were blue raspberry, green apple, and grape.

Get creative and enjoy!
