Birthday Cake Pancakes

Yes... you read that right! BIRTHDAY. CAKE. PANCAKES!!! These are crazy delicious and crazy sweet! Perfect for my hubby who loves all things Birthday cake. I stumbled upon the original recipe awhile back and knew I had to make these for his Birthday. We made them together and changed it up a bit to create what we think is the best Birthday concoction EVER!
Cake Ingredients
1 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cup yellow cake mix
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
pinch of salt
rainbow bead sprinkles

Combine flour, cake mix, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Add milk, egg and vanilla and mix with a fork until smooth. TIP: you might want to start with only half the milk and gradually add the rest as needed to make sure the batter doesn't become too runny. Different cake mixes vary in moisture. Sprinkle in the rainbow sprinkles and swirl them into the batter.

Heat a pancake skillet over medium heat on the stove with a touch of butter so the batter doesn't stick. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side.

Icing Ingredients
2 cups powdered sugar
3 1/2 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
more rainbow sprinkles

Mix the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in a bowl until all ingredients are combined and a nice syrupy (is that a word?) glaze forms.

Pour icing over plated pancakes and garnish with more rainbow sprinkles!
Makes approximately 8 medium size cakes. We've pretty much decided that it doesn't need to be someone's Birthday to make these again. They're so much fun to make (and eat) and would make an awesome breakfast idea for kids too. Enjoy!
