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.

Birthday Cake Pancakes


1 box of Yellow cake mix (along with ingredients to make cake: eggs, water and vegetable oil)

1/2 cup colored sprinkles

1 cup of powdered sugar

1-2 tablespoons of milk


Slowly add milk to powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached

Mix 1 box of yellow cake mix according to directions on box

Add 1/4 cup sprinkles and mix gently

Add 1/4 cup of batter to a hot skillet until bubbles form on surface (like making… pancakes)

Flip once and cook until second side is golden brown

Top with sugar glaze and serve sprinkled with colored sprinkles
