Cake batter recipes seem to be very popular right now. This recipe comes from Chef in Training.


  •  2-3 slices bread
  •  2 eggs
  •  3-5 Tbsp milk
  •  1 tsp vanilla
  •  1/4 to 1/2 cup yellow (or funfetti) cake mix, dry
  •  sprinkles

Heat up a skillet or griddle to medium heat and then spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Whist eggs, milk, vanilla and cake mix together until well combined. (you can add sprinkles to wet batter or sprinkle on top after the bread is already dipped)
Dip bread into batter on both sides.
Cook until golden brown (about 4-5 minutes) and then flip over and cook other side.
Top with syrup or a vanilla or cake batter glaze.

You can adapt this recipe to how many servings you want!
