Wordless Wednesday [Cupcake Pancake Recipe] Birthday Fun

Sunday was Gavin’s 5th Birthday and we had such a great day! We start birthday’s around here with birthday cupcake pancakes! What are cupcake pancakes? Well, pancakes made from cupcake mix! Yes, they aren’t the most healthy choice but twice a year won’t harm anyone and the kids look forward to it. Plus, you start your day with a wish what’s better then that as a kid?

It’s super simple. I start with Funfetti Cupcake mix and make as directed.

It has sprinkles in the mix which is perfect for birthday’s!

I make small pancakes because these don’t cook like regular pancakes. They take awhile and you have to cook them at a low heat like 250. They aren’t the easiest to flip either so big ones would be difficult.

For the frosting you just mix water and powdered sugar and have it a little runny.

Drizzle it over the pancakes and it dries quickly like glaze on a krispie kreme donut. It’s so yummy. Add a candle and you’ve got yourself some yummy birthday pancakes!
