Crazy ways to work with fun recipes

Table Talk



Birthday cake pancakes


1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour    

1 cup (boxed) yellow cake mix

1 tbs sugar            

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda        

1/4 tsp salt

2 eggs            

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

1/2 cup milk            

2 Tbsp butter, melted

1 tsp vanilla            

1/3 cup sprinkles-birthday party type


Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour, cake mix, sugar, baking powder, soda and salt; set aside.

In a separate medium bowl, lightly beat the eggs with a wisk. Add the milks, butter and vanilla and whisk to combine. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir until fully mixed. Fold in the sprinkles.

Scoop portions of 1/3 cup of batter onto the griddle, leaving room for the batter to spread. When the pancakes begin to bubble, flip and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm until serving. Serve with syrup or optional icing. I like to use the powdered sugar type mixed with whipped topping.

The last idea I am going to take to a homemakers meeting here in Berea. I will give you the bread recipe and tell you how to fill it in.

Sandwich layer cake

Ingredients for the bread cake:

1 1/2 tbsp dried yeast        

2 cups of water

2 tsp salt            

1 tsp dark syrup

2 tsp cooking oil        

1 1/4 cup wheat flour

5 cups all purpose flour


To make the bread layers: Dissolve the yeast in water. Add salt, syrup, oil, and whole wheat flour. Mix in white flour and knead. Place into a greased bowl and let rise 45 minutes. Remove from bowl, knead and place it in a round cake pan. Let it rise again. An ideal pan is a spring form pan. Cover and let rise 45 minutes. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake the bread for about 35 minutes. Cool and remove from the pan.

Slice the baked bread into several layers. Then you can add your favorite meats, veggies, etc., onto each slice as you build your cake back into form. Ice cake with cream cheese that has been blended with  sour cream. I do not add a dressing between each layer but you can do so if you like.

  • 7-29 Nostalgia-Glenmore.jpg Paper boys learned life, business lessons

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

  • Dick-Ham.jpg Here’s why teachers aren’t paid enough

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.

  • Katie-Rollins.jpg Thank the Lord for the rain

    Hello readers, it’s a stormy Monday evening as I write this, and I’ve been thanking the Lord all day for the good rain – over an inch in the gauge now, and it looks like more before morning.

  • Can you believe such cool weather in mid July?

    Refreshing. That’s the word one TV weatherman described the upcoming days when temperatures will be in the 70s with virtually no humidity and lots of sunshine. Can you believe that in the middle of July? We can live with that, can’t we? We may even get close to setting a record for morning lows later this week. This has certainly been the year for strange weather!
