About a week ago, I decided to try out birthday cake pancakes. Unfortunately, all the recipes I found required cake mix and I had a big problem with that because:
1. I am completely against everything cake mix is about. That chemical-y taste. No thanks.
2. I didn’t want to change out of my pajamas to go to the store. And I refuse to wear pajamas to the store.
With these problems, I had to come up with something. I found a few recipes for homemade “cake batter” flavor, and changed it up so that it would fit for my recipe.
Recipe for “Cake Batter”:
1 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1/2 Tbs. baking powder
1/2 Tbs. vanilla
6 Tbs. COLD butter
Pinch of Salt
(If you use this recipe for anything else, add a few Tbs. of powdered milk)
Combine all of the ingredients in the food processor and pulse until the crumbles are gone and you have a fine powdery substance. Keep it in a Ziploc in the freezer until you’re ready to use it or the butter will melt and it’ll give it a weird consistency. If this happens, let it get cold again, and throw it back in the food processor.
Recipe for Birthday Cake Pancakes:
3/4 c. flour
1/3 + 2 Tbs. cake mix
3/4 Tbs. sugar
3/8 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c. + 2 Tbs. milk
*Sprinkles of choice*
*I looked for rainbow sprinkles for forever. I could NOT find them. Settled for St. Patty’s Day sprinkles since it’s almost that time! Finished the pancakes, found the rainbow sprinkles. This is all up to you.*
Whisk together all of the dry ingredients. Then add the egg, milk, and sprinkles. Cook in a heated pan coated with cooking spray or butter. Serve with the Buttercream glaze (below).
Recipe for Buttercream Glaze:
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 Tbs. milk
1/3 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. butter extract
Combine all of the ingredients together and serve with Birthday Cake pancakes!
Hope you guys like this recipe.
