Big 7/birthday cake pancakes.

Happy birthday to my big seven year old. I cannot believe how fast the years go by. He is so tendered hearted and teaches me something new each day. I am so proud of him. He has accomplished so many things.
Today I made birthday pancakes for breakfast . Got the recipe from

Pinterest of course.

Yes, it tastes just like eating cake for breakfast. A very fun tradition to celebrate special days. I also just reached “best mom ever” status. Thank you sprinkles, you never let me down.

Cake Batter Pancakes (recipe from How Sweet It Is)
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour 2/3 cup yellow cake mix 1 tablespoon sugar 3/4 teaspoon baking powder 1/8 tsp salt 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1-2 cups milk (varies depending on cake mix) assorted sprinkles Combine flour, cake mix, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl and mix. Add 1 cup of milk, egg and vanilla extract and stir until smooth. You want the batter to look like regular pancake batter; not too thin, not too thick. This will vary greatly on the brand of cake mix you use. Start with 1 cup of milk and add more if needed. Preheat a skillet on medium heat (I use an electric grilled and turn it to 275 degrees). Fold desired amount of sprinkles into batter. Pour batter in 1/4 cup measurements onto skillet and let cook until bubbles form on top, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for 1 minute more. Serve with vanilla glaze. Glaze 1 cup powdered sugar 1/2 tablespoon milk 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract assorted sprinkles Mix milk, extract and powdered sugar until glaze forms. You may need to add a little more sugar or water/milk to reach desired consistency. Mix into glaze and drizzle on pancakes. Top with extra sprinkles. *Because at this point, we really need more sugar*

He got to open his presents before school so that was fun for him.
