Happiness Project Recipe #15: Celebration Sprinkle Cake Pancakes!

All I’ve been yammering about for the past 7 days is my near constant craving for cake batter pancakes so after my husband & I discovered something rather miraculous last night (Patience, my friends! You’ll have to wait & see!), I decided that even with all the cramping & nausea, I had to whip up a batch of this yummy, sprinkle pancake recipe. And let me tell you, these pancakes are very, VERY pretty little things! Who doesn’t like a little burst of rainbow happiness on a Saturday afternoon?! I do! Best of all, they’re super quick & relatively easy to create too! So no, you now have NO excuse not to whip up these tasty morning treats! None! *wink wink*


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup yellow cake mix

1 tablespoon sugar

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

pinch of salt

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract

1 1/3 cups vanilla almond milk

handful of jumbo sized sprinkles


1 1/3 cups powdered sugar

1 tablespoon whole milk

1/2 teaspoon clear vanilla extract

First, whisk together the flour, cake mix, baking powder, sugar and salt together in a large bowl. Combine your milk, eggs and vanilla extract into another small bowl. Pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture and stir with a whisk or wooden spoon to combine. Next, fold in your jumbo sprinkles, as many as you would like.

With a preheated skillet over medium heat (lightly buttered up with a non-stick cooking spray), use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to portion out the batter into the pan. After 4-5 minutes, flip the pancake over and cook on the second side until nicely golden. Repeat with as much of the batter as you intend to use.

Once you’ve cooked up all of your pancakes, stir together the milk, vanilla extract and powdered sugar for your glaze until it’s consistency is smooth & glossy. Drizzle or drop in small spoonfuls over your rainbow pancakes! And then top with MORE sprinkles, if you’d like! There’s no such thing as too many sprinkles, I say!

See? Easy! So get yourself into that kitchen & get cooking! Life is all about celebrating the sweet & simple things! Especially when there’s sprinkles involved!
