Christmas morning in our house is all about opening all of our gifts and enjoy a delicious stack of these Funfetti Pancakes. ♥ ♥
To make these delicious Funfetti Pancakes extra special for the holiday season, I simply replaced the buttermilk in my favorite buttermilk pancake recipe with Dunkin’ Donuts Extra Extra Coffee Creamer. And they turned out light, fluffy and delicious! The perfect way to start Christmas morning.
JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:
✓ DON’T OVERMIX: When mixing the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, you only want to mix the batter until you don’ see any more flour, the batter will be LUMPY! Overmixing your pancake batter will result in dense, heavy pancakes.
✓ LET THE BATTER REST: While you are waiting for the griddle to get hot, let the batter rest. This allows the gluten to relax and settle, which means the pancakes will be more tender. Yummy!
✓ GRIDDLE TIP: If you are using a griddle, make sure it’s hot enough before putting the pancake batter on it. I like to do a test to make sure the griddle is hot enough. What I like to do is drop a tablespoon of pancake batter in the center. If, after one minute, the pancake is golden brown on the bottom, the pan is ready. If you still see pancake batter or the bottom is burnt…adjust the heat accordingly.

STEP 1: Whisk flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Set aside.
STEP 2: Whisk together the coffee creamer, sour cream, eggs, and vanilla extract in another large bowl.
STEP 3: Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir until batter is just blended but still LUMPY. DO NOT OVERMIX. Add sprinkles.
STEP 4: Pour batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto hot griddle or frying pan, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
