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.
