Birthday Pancakes!

Today is my 28th birthday and also the first official day of summer! To celebrate both of these things, my sweet husband made me these birthday pancakes this morning. We sat out on the porch and I wanted to cry. I am so blessed. It's safe to say it is going to be an amazing day!

Birthday Pancakes
(Makes about 12 pancakes)

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 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 cups milk
Assorted sprinkles

Combine flour, cake mix, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl and mix. Add 1 cup of milk, egg and vanilla and stir until smooth. You want the batter to look like regular pancake batter; not too thin, not too thick. Start with 1 cup of milk and add more if you need to.

Preheat a skillet on medium heat. Fold desired amount of sprinkles into batter. More sprinkles please. Pour batter in 1/4 cup measurements onto skillet and let cook until bubbles form on top, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for 1 minute more. Serve with vanilla glaze.

Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Assorted sprinkles
Mix milk, extract and powdered sugar until glaze forms. You may need to add a little more sugar or water/milk to reach desired consistency. Mix into glaze and drizzle on pancakes then devour!
This is definitely the BEST pancake recipe I've ever tried! Original recipe from here!
