Birthday Cake Batter Pancakes

Did I have you at birthday cake batter? I made these fluffy stacks of deliciousness for my husband’s birthday but, you can make these for any celebration or just about anytime you crave them! These pancakes are topped with a luscious buttercream glaze and sprinkled colorful sprinkles. Wanna make your own stack?
Here’s what you’ll need:1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour| 1/2 cup yellow cake mix| 1 Tablespoon baking powder| 1 Tablespoon sugar| 1/4 teaspoon salt| 2 eggs, slightly beaten| 1/4 cup butter, softened| 1 3/4 cup milk| Colorful sprinkles.
In a large bowl whisk together flour, cake mix, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add in beaten eggs, milk, and butter. Stir gently just until dry ingredients are well incorporated. Batter should be a little lumpy. Let batter sit for 7-10 minutes.
I LOVE SPRINKLES!
Fold in sprinkles. Heat buttered griddle to 375 degrees. Add batter to the griddle using a 1/4 cup to scoop out the batter. When small bubbles start to break on the surface of the pancake, it is ready to flip. Stack pancakes on a plate when done.
Buttercream Glaze: 1 cup powdered sugar| 2 Tablespoon butter, melted| 2 Tablespoons heavy cream| 2-3 Tablespoon milk| 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Combine all ingredients & stir until it reaches a glaze consistency. You may need to add more milk if it’s to thick or more powdered sugar if it’s too thin.
Drizzle buttercream glaze over the stack of pancakes and top with sprinkles.
Happy Birthday to the best husband in the world! XO
