Quinn turned five today; we had to celebrate big. She has come to expect pancakes on every birthday like she does waffles on snow days. It makes me so happy to know that she has traditions to look forward to and love as much as I do. Birthdays are the best days! Everyone deserves to be spoiled at least one day of the year.
So I am here to share with you our beloved birthday pancake recipe! We use it for every single birthday in this household! The key to making really great pancakes is letting the batter sit for at least a solid 10 minutes. Maybe its letting it get closer to room temperature? I don’t really know but whatever the reason is I will always let the deliciousness rest from here on out. Try is one time and let me know what you think!
Funfilled Birthday Pancakes
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 tbs sugar
- 3/4 c milk ( I use almond)
- 1 large egg
- 2 tbs melted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 4 tbs sprinkles
- 2 tbs milk
- 1/2 c powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- extra sprinkles
- Mix dry batter ingredients in a mixing bowl (minus the sprinkles)
- In a separate bowl, mix all the wet batter ingredients together.
- Add the wet batter to the dry ingredients, blend the two until there are few clumps
- Set the batter aside. Heat an electric griddle to 350 degrees. I use this one
- Once the griddle is fully heated add the sprinkles to the batter mix.
- Spoon 1/4 cup per each pancake. Leave on griddle for 2-5 minutes per each side
- Once the last batch is on the griddle mix all the glaze ingredients together.
- Serve immediately, add glaze on top of a big stack of pancakes. Add more sprinkles and whipped cream if you feel so delighted 🙂 Wish whoever a happy day from me personally 🙂
