Cake Batter Pancakes

I found this recipe here...and they were SO good!

I didn't have yellow cake mix (which I think would be delightful!), so today I used a Duncan Hines chocolate fudge cake mix. All 3 of my kids ate 3 pancakes and wanted more! :)
I topped with a touch of butter and a little sprinkle of powdered sugar.

And, since mine were chocolatey brown, I didn't bother adding sprinkles, but will try that next time with the yellow cake mix. These were such a big hit!

Cake Batter Pancakes
1 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cup yellow cake mix
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 Tbsp sugar (I omitted this!)
pinch of salt
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 - 2 cups milk
assorted sprinkles (optional)


1. Combine flour, cake mix, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl and mix. Add 1 cup of milk, egg and vanilla extract and stir until smooth. You want the batter to look like regular pancake batter; not too thin, not too thick. This will vary greatly on the brand of cake mix you use. Start with 1 cup of milk and add more if needed. I suggest a small taste test as well to see if the pancakes are flavored enough.

2. Preheat a skillet on medium heat (I use an electric grilled and turn it to 250 degrees). Fold desired amount of sprinkles into batter. 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.


1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 Tbsp milk
assorted sprinkles

1. 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.
