Servings: 15 pancakes



  • 1 1/2 C all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 C white or yellow cake mix
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 C milk
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 3-4 Tbsp rainbow sprinkles

Whipped cream:

  • 3/4 C heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp powdered sugar


  • Prepare whipped cream in a medium bowl. Beat together heavy cream and powdered sugar until thickened and nearly stiff peaks form. Chill until ready to use.
  • Preheat an electric skillet to 350°F and lightly grease with vegetable oil.
  • In a large bowl, combine dry pancake ingredients, reserving sprinkles. In a medium bowl, combine wet ingredients. Slowly incorporate the wet mixture to the dry, using a whisk to combine. Stir until only small lumps remain. Stir in sprinkles.
  • Using a large cookie scoop, drop batter onto preheated skillet. Smooth out batter, creating a circle in an even layer. Cook for 3 minutes or until golden on the bottom and bubbling on top. Flip and cook for an additional 1 minute or until golden.
  • Serve and enjoy immediately with fresh whipped cream and extra sprinkles.
