These are super fun and yummy and everyone should have them for birthday breakfast.  If it’s not your birthday, you should still have them!

You can serve them with regular syrup but if it is a birthday my vote is ice cream!  I put frozen Cool Whip on mine…

My 15 year old daughter made this recipe!  :)  She is truly an amazing baker and often fills our kitchen with yummy baked goods.  Brownies are her specialty but she’s great at all kinds of baking.  This is the second recipe she has made for me to share with you (the first was these amazing Chocolate Chip Scones that forever changed my view on scones).  Ok, enough gushing…  make these, you’ll love them.

  1. Preheat skillet or griddle to medium-high.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder and cake mix in a bowl. Place sprinkles in a bowl and add a tablespoon of flour and toss to coat. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine milk, butter, vanilla and eggs. Stir until mixed. Add to flour mixture and stir just until combined. Batter should still be slightly lumpy. If it's extremely thick, add a little extra milk to get the right consistency. Fold in sprinkles (don't stir too much so the colors don't run).
  4. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto lightly greased skillet or griddle. Once edges are cooked, flip pancakes and cook another minute.
  5. Serve hot with ice cream (hey, it is BIRTHDAY CAKE) or Cool Whip. (I used frozen Cool Whip!)

This recipe was adapted from Betty Crocker… their version uses Bisquick but I wanted to make it without.
