I was recently given the opportunity to try the new Funfetti Pancakes from Hungry Jack and I must say, I was impressed! I'm not normally one to tout the virtues of convenience foods, preferring to make homemade to using mixes, but these pancakes are quite tasty. Even better, they are super easy to make.
As a single mom who works full time AND part time, sometimes I have to make the choice of what is more important-time with my kids or taking the time to make food from scratch. Most days, I enjoy teaching my children how to cook, but as I am not a morning person, making pancakes with them often leads to more trouble than it's worth. All I can say is thank heavens for these new pancakes from Hungry Jack. All it takes to make delicious, festive pancakes is a pack of this mix, some water and the few minutes it takes to heat up the griddle and cook them.
All told, it took about fifteen minutes to make a batch of these pancakes for Sunday breakfast. I must say, it was fifteen well spent minutes! For the first time in a long time, there was no shouting or tears during breakfast prep and everyone was happy. My kids raved about how yummy their pancakes were, my older twin even exclaiming
Mommy, these pancakes are better than your homemade ones!
Ah, out of the mouths of babes... Honestly, I think it was the Christmas colored sprinkles that won them over. Speckles of red, white and green in your breakfast really is hard to top, even I know that! I see a new holiday tradition in my family's future.
