Food Fashion and Flow: Birthday Cake Pancakes

Birthday Cake Pancakes



With my birthday a day away, I wanted to start off my birthday weekend with something sweet and delicious.  I was in the kitchen  and whipped these up  in no time! These pancakes have amazing flavor and they really do taste like birthday cake.  The sprinkles make the pancakes very festive and colorful and  so fun! They are so delicious on their own, they almost don't need anything on them, but they are scrumptious with glaze or a dollop of whipped cream. 


Even if its not your birthday these are amazing for breakfast!


Whipped cream and sprinkles. Doesn't just looking at it 
make you smile?


Some things are  impossible to describe

These pancakes are one of those things


But if you want to see how amazing these are...


Cake Batter Pancakes
makes about 12 pancakes

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour or Bisquick

2/3 cup yellow cake mix or funfetti cake mix

1 tablespoon sugar

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

pinch of salt

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1-2 cups milk

assorted sprinkles


Combine flour, cake mix, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl and mix. Add 1 cup of milk, egg and vanilla extract and stir until smooth. The batter should be the consistency of regular pancake batter, you may need to add  more milk if batter is too thick.


Preheat a skillet on medium heat . Fold desired amount of sprinkles into batter. Pour batter in 1/4 cup measurements onto skillet and let cook until bubbles form on top, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for 1 minute more. Serve with vanilla glaze or whipped cream.

Glaze

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 tablespoon milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon softened butter

assorted sprinkles

Mix milk, extract and powdered sugar until glaze forms. You may need to add a little more sugar or water/milk to reach desired consistency. Mix into glaze and drizzle on pancakes.

 I don't need an excuse to have sprinkles and whipped cream. You don't need one either and if you want to know just how good they are?


Well, you just have to try them:-)
