Today is my Bean's 17th birthday. What? WHAT??!!
17? I'm not even sure what to do with that.
These are basically my Grandmother in Law's pancakes, which you can find here, with a scoop of yellow cake mix, sprinkles, vanilla, and a delicious glaze.
To make things quicker in the morning, I measure out all of the dry ingredients in a lidded mixing bowl. Then I just mix in the wet, combine well, and lastly, add the sprinkles. Be sure to wait til just before frying to add the sprinkles. The colors may start to streak in the batter.
Did Bean like them? He said, and I quote, "I feel bad for all of the other pancakes now.". Yeah, he liked them.
Here is his trying to think of a wish.
17 sure is crazy, but now, we all know, the Trace has broken and he can practice magic outside of Hogwarts, so, there's that. Carry on.
Love, kisses, and pancakes,
