A few weeks ago I talked about the importance of having a family breakfast and how they can get lost in the hustle and bustle of work, school, and life. We’re still adjusting to life as a family of 4 vs 3 and with a newborn in the home things have been hectic to say the least, but one of the things I’ve been doing is family breakfast on the weekends. Hungry Jack sent over some of their seasonal products to help make our breakfasts delicious and easy and we’ve been putting them to good use!

Hungry Jack Funfetti

Family breakfast gives me and our 3 year old time to do something together since she likes to help me make breakfast. She’s still too little to cook, so she does important things such as putting the mix into a bowl, adding ingredients, and mixing and then I get to do the cooking. The sausage pancake balls I made last time were such a hit with her that I decided to keep up with the theme and this time we made pancake donut holes with our Funfetti Pancake Mix.

For this I use my cakepop maker, but you can fry them if you don’t have a cakepop maker.



1 package of Hungry Jack Funfetti Pancake Mix

1 cup water


3/4 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2 tbsp milk

red & green food coloring gel


Make pancake mix according to package. If using cakepop maker, scoop 1 tbsp of pancake mix into each hole. Cook for a few minutes.

While the donut holes are cooking we mixed up the glaze. Combine sugar, milk, and vanilla in a bowl until smooth. Divide into two bowls and add a squirt of each color to their own bowl and mix.

Take warm donuts and dip into glaze and then place on wax paper until cool.

3 Tips to bring back breakfast to your family:

1. Keep it Simple – You don’t have to go over board and create a fancy breakfast. Something as simple as frozen sausage and pancake mix is more than enough for a family breakfast. It will save you time, stress, and the family will still love it.

2. Make it Fun – Family time is all about having fun. While donut holes and sugary breakfasts aren’t a regular thing in our house, it’s nice to do them once in awhile for fun. Create a pancake bar with fun toppings such as whipped cream, chocolate chips, and fresh fruit. Or make something fun like donut holes with glaze!

3. Use paper plates – Yes, I know. Paper Plates aren’t eco-friendly, BUT sometimes they are a necessary evil and they make life so much easier. Use them them to help cut down on the amount of dishes you’ll have to wash later!

    I would love to try the Cinnamon Spice pancakes. My kids would love them too. I’d serve them with whipped cream.

  2. samantha w says

    My kids love bacon and pancakes, I’d let my kids pick what special ingredient they would want in their pancakes. (sprinkles, choc chips, etc)

  3. Danielle F. says

    I’d make blueberry pancakes with scrambled eggs on a Sunday morning and we’d eat together in the kitchen as a family.

  4. Jessica Lee says

    I’d bring back breakfast to my family by making a huge breakfast every weekend. I’m thinking french toast casserole,bacon,sausage, eggs and Orange Juice!

  5. Danielle F. says

    I visited that Bing site link and would love to have Windows 8.1 – it seems so convenient but I only have Windows 7 on my computer/laptop.

  6. Kelly McDaniel says

    I would take it back to old school southern country breakfast with biscuits and gravy but add a little fruit instead of grits because my kids don’t eat grits

  7. Julie Wood says

    I got a new griddle to make pancakes, eggs, bacon or sausage on so we can get back to having delicious breakfasts again. I am off for a week, so I will be able to make a lot of great breakfasts this week.

  8. Marie Stuver says

    There is just my husband and myself at home now, and we would need to agree that this was important because neither one of us likes to get up early. Then we would need to find things to make that would taste good to both of us, and we have wildly different tastes!! This would be quite a challenge!

  9. bianca roman says

    i would totally make these funfetti pancakes! my son would think it’s cake!! but i also would make chocolate chip batter and use our new donut maker we bought!!! gotta get them up and going!

  10. Becky Richied says

    I have made my variation of the AM crunch wrap and they keep disappearing out of the freezer and refrigerator….the kids love it.

  11. Jennifer Reed says

    One way I try to bring breakfast back to my family is by doing as much as I can the night before. I found the recipe for the Blueberry Peach Crisp made with Hungry Jack Complete Blueberry Wheat Flavored Pancake & Waffle Mix on their website and I think this could be made the night before and stuck in the oven in the morning for a quick but delicious family breakfast.

  12. Jill Myrick says

    We would all cook breakfast together and then sit down at the table to eat and catch up on the week that we have had.


  13. Gwen says

    I’d capitulate and make a big, greasy breakfast with hash browns, eggs, bacon, sausages and pancakes – but I’d do it only on the weekend – which would be so bad…

  14. Janet W. says

    Those look delicious! I’d love to make these for my grandsons to enjoy! They would be so excited to eat them.
