Gluten Free Confetti Sugar Cookie Pancakes

2013 – Gluten Free Living

Gluten Free Confetti Sugar Cookie Pancakes are amazing. Warning! While these spectacular pancakes are gluten free they are in NO way healthy! They are filled with what makes sugar cookies so great – LOTS of sugar, confetti sprinkles and then topped with a luscious buttercream frosting-type syrup and more confetti sprinkles. These rich, decadent pancakes are as delicious as eating dessert! They are an extremely satisfying breakfast meal for sure!

I wanted to make these pancakes as close to sugar cookies as possible. I also wanted to use up a LOT of confetti sprinkles. In my case, I used two bottles of the sequins for this recipe in an attempt to get rid of some of them and clear out my pantry! I used gluten free flour in these pancakes but if you are not gluten intolerant you can substitute any pancake mix. Our favorite is Krusteaz. They have quite a variety of great pancake mixes.

If you’re in the mood for some marvelous sugar cookie-type pancakes then this recipe is for you! I loved these pancakes and the icing I made for them. I would recommend that you make the icing very thick because it will thin out considerably once it’s ladled over top of the hot pancakes. Why don’t you consider whipping up some of these heavenly pancakes the next time you’re sweet tooth is craving something extra sweet! You won’t be disappointed though you may have to take a nap afterwards!  🙂

When I initially posted this recipe in March 2013, it was just before I began using my new Canon camera. As a result the pictures weren’t as crisp and clear as I would have liked. I recently remade Gluten Free Confetti Sugar Cookie Pancakes (August 2016) and adjusted it just a little bit. It’s still an amazing breakfast entree. I highly recommend it if you’re not worried about calories.  🙂

Meanwhile, prepare icing. Soften butter then cream it with a mixer or whisk. Add powdered sugar, vanilla and water. Be careful, add as little water as possible. The icing needs to be thick. Mix with electric mixer or whisk until smooth. Make icing as thick as possible.

This is another picture that shows all the scrumptious icing drizzled over the pancakes and lots of confetti sprinkles (jimmies) that I added on top. You have to make the icing thick as the hot pancakes will melt some of it and if it is too thin it dissolves entirely into the pancakes.
