Birthday Cake Pancakes

We have a new family tradition! I started making these in August for my daughter's 8th birthday, then made them again for my son's 6th birthday in September, and in December my now 4 year old begged for them on her birthday too. They are super easy to throw together, and the kids really feel like they are eating cake for breakfast!
Mmmm.... so easy to make too!

Love all the sprinkles! Feel free to change up which kind of sprinkles you use.

I had to use a little more milk to thin out the glaze, but it tastes like frosting on top of the pancakes.

YUM! Your kids will thank you, trust me!
Birthday Cake Pancakes
1 cup pancake mix
1 cup yellow cake mix
3 TBSP candy sprinkles
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs                                          
Glaze and Garnish
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 TBSP plus 2 tsp milk
1/2 to 1 tsp vanilla                                
Additional candy sprinkles for garnish
Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375°F; grease with cooking spray, vegetable oil or shortening. (Surface is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it dance and disappear.)

In medium bowl, stir together pancake ingredients until blended. Pour by slightly less than 1/4 cupfuls onto hot griddle. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until pancakes are golden brown. Stack on serving plates.

In small bowl, beat powdered sugar, milk and vanilla with whisk until smooth. If it is too thick (like mine was) slowly add more milk until it is a smooth consistancy.

To serve, top each serving with glaze and additional candy sprinkles.
