Funfetti Cake Batter Pancakes with Lemon Glaze

Funfetti Cake Batter Birthday Pancakes


  • 1 1/4 cups Funfetti cake mix
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup low-fat (2%) buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

lemon glaze and garnish:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1-3 tablespoons milk
  • colored sprinkles
  • whipped cream

In a medium bowl, combine the cake mix, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, milk, melted butter and vanilla.  (If the butter clumps up, don't worry - as the pancakes cook, the water in the pieces of butter creates steam which creates nice little pockets of air for fluffy pancakes.)  Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until moistened.  Set batter aside to rest for 10-15 minutes while you preheat your griddle.

Using a scant 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, cook the pancakes on a greased griddle over medium heat until golden brown on each side; keep the pancakes warm on a parchment-lined baking sheet in at 120 degree oven while you finish cooking all the pancakes.

For the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice until smooth, and add enough milk to reach your desired consistency.

Drizzle the glaze over the pancakes and top with whipped cream and sprinkles.

Yields about 20 pancakes.
