Instead of using a pancake mix we are truly having a birthday party when we use a cake mix and home made frosting and sprinkles to celebrate our Kings birthday.
Thanks Rachel Ray who inspired me to make these pancakes: http://www.rachaelraymag.com/recipe/birthday-pancakes/
This is very simple all you need is a yellow cake mix, sprinkles, powdered sugar, vanilla, butter, milk, and candles.
Make the cake mix as directed then add sprinkles. (My picture does not show the red,green, and white sprinkles very well.) Cook the cake batter just like pancake batter. Make a frosting drizzle with the remaining ingredients. Here is a recipe you can use for Frosting. (This recipe does not use butter but I did because I like it a bit more creamy and I added green food coloring to fit the Christmas colors.) Mix and taste till it fits your taste buds. :)
Add the frosting to the pancakes, add more sprinkles, put on the candles and then sit down Christmas morning and celebrate His birthday like you do your children's by singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Each family member also gets to blow out candles for Jesus. Your children will ask for these pancakes again... yummy cake for breakfast no complaints at this house!
My daughter was concerned because we did not have enough candles for Jesus! I love her innocence and heart! Maybe next year we will buy the number candles!
