Cake Batter Pancakes

Happy birthday to the love of my life, John William!!!  The big 2-5.  Here is a festive and fun way to wake up your birthday boy or girl on their special day.  Yields about 12 pancakes.

{What you need}
1 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cup yellow cake mix
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-2 cups milk
1/2 tablespoon sprinkles

1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon sprinkles

Combine flour, cake mix, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl and whisk it together until thoroughly blended.  Add just one cup of milk, the eggs, and the vanilla.  Whisk until well blended, adding a little milk here and there until you reach the consistency of regular pancake batter.  Fold 1/2 tablespoon sprinkles in batter right before cooking.

Preheat a skillet on medium heat.  Spray non-stick cooking spray on the pan if you need to, and measure out 1/4 cup batter per pancake.  Cook until the up side of the pancake bubbles, about 2-3 minutes, then flip and cook the other side, about one minute more.  Serve with vanilla glaze!

For the glaze, combine everything and whisk together until it forms a syrup-y consistency.  You may want to add a tablespoon or two of milk at a time until it gets to the thickness you prefer.

Happy Birthday!!!
