Birthday Cake Pancakes

Birthday Cake Pancakes

Birthdays are huge in our  house. I love to make each child’s birthday special by surprising them that morning by decorating the kitchen with balloons and streamers and making a yummy breakfast. And what could be better than birthday cake pancakes with sprinkles on your birthday? I can’t think of much.

The kids absolutely flipped over these pancakes and I found myself snacking on them throughout the morning since they make a ton.  I am planning on freezing the rest (if they make it through the day) and pulling them out for a fun treat.
