These Funfetti Cake Batter Pancakes will make a birthday shine or give an ordinary day a special start. A cake mix gives it that well-loved cake batter flavor, but these still have a wonderful pancake texture. And don't forget the buttercream glaze on top!
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cake mix. Set aside.
In another small bowl, whisk together the oil, eggs and milk.
Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Fold in the sprinkles. Batter will be thick. (If you'd like thinner pancakes, you can add a bit more milk.)
Heat a griddle to about 250-275 degrees Fahrenheit (low heat so the pancakes do not burn). Spray the griddle with cooking spray.
Ladle the pancake batter onto the hot pan and cook the pancakes for about 1-2 minutes or until bubbles start forming in the batter. Flip the pancake and cook for an additional minute or until cooked through.
This recipes makes about 22 5" pancakes.
For the Frosting
In a small bowl, stir together the powdered sugar, softened butter, cream and vanilla. This frosting will be at a spreadable consistency.
If you'd like to drizzle the frosting, microwave the frosting for about 10 seconds and stir, then drizzle over the pancakes.
Double the frosting recipe, if desired.
Drizzle the glaze overtop the pancakes.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
If you'd like buttermilk pancakes, use buttermilk in place of the milk, then reduce the baking powder to 1 teaspoon and add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.
Use jimmies or nonpareils. The color may start to come off the sprinkles and color the batter, so add them at the very end.
These pancakes freeze well. Place wax paper between each pancake and put them in a Ziploc bag. The wax paper will help them to separate easily.
