Ingredients

Pancakes

  • 1
    cup Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1
    cup Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ yellow cake mix
  • 3
    tablespoons candy sprinkles
  • 1
    cup milk
  • 1
    teaspoon vanilla
  • 2
    eggs

Glaze and Garnish

  • 2 1/2
    cups powdered sugar
  • 3
    tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons milk
  • 1
    teaspoon vanilla
  • Additional candy sprinkles

Steps

  • 1
    Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375°F; grease with cooking spray, vegetable oil or shortening. (Surface is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it dance and disappear.)
  • 2
    In medium bowl, stir together pancake ingredients until blended. Pour by slightly less than 1/4 cupfuls onto hot griddle. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until pancakes are golden brown. Stack on serving plates.
  • 3
    In small bowl, beat powdered sugar, milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla with whisk until smooth.
  • 4
    To serve, top each serving with glaze and additional candy sprinkles.

  • These would be a perfect addition to a birthday breakfast table!
  • Keep pancakes warm by setting them on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet in the oven at 200°F until you’ve finished making the entire batch.
  • Try experimenting with different colored sprinkles for holiday celebrations. Green sprinkles would be a wonderful touch on St. Patrick’s Day, while red, white and blue sprinkles would be a great option for a festive Fourth of July brunch!
