We have a family tradition for birthdays.  Each family member, on their birthday, gets to choose what they'd like to eat for breakfast and dinner and they get to choose what kind of cake they'd like me to make.  Cake Batter Sprinkles Pancakes are a great way to start a birthday!

Sprinkles make everything taste better, right?  Who can resist those pretty multi-colored specks of sugar.

Here's all you do...

Mix together flour, yellow cake mix, sugar, baking powder and a pinch of salt.

Dry ingredients - flour, yellow cake mix, sugar, baking powder and a pinch of salt in a large mixing bowl

In another bowl, mix the eggs, vanilla extract and milk together and blend it with the dry ingredients...

Next, add the sprinkles.  I used 1/2 cup because sprinkles were very important...

After you've prepared the batter, heat up a griddle or frying pan on a medium-low heat.  When the griddle's heated, butter the surface and measure out 1/4 cup of the batter and pour it onto the griddle.  I love the size of these...they're perfect!

When you begin to see little bubbles on the top, carefully flip the pancakes over and cook the other side for a minute or so.

When they're finished, pile them high on a plate.  Have a look at all those pretty colorful sprinkles scattered throughout - aren't they festive!
