My 5 year old, Eloise, was right beside me during the creation of this recipe and she couldn’t wait for it to be finished. Throughout the testing process, she kept sneaking little bites and declaring this was going to be the best recipe ever. I would agree, this recipe turned out to be the best ever! Probably because I had the cutest little helper around.

Birthday cake flavor anything makes me a happy girl, especially a pancake. For the batter, I used the liveGfree Pancake and Baking Mix, along with an egg, almond milk, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Instead of using traditional syrup, I created a Buttercream Glaze that really brings this recipe together. The glaze is super simple and requires minimal ingredients such as, powdered sugar, heavy cream, milk, butter and vanilla extract.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 10 pancakes


  • Birthday Cake Pancakes Ingredients
  • 1 cup liveGfree Pancake and Baking Mix
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 2 tbsp Simply Nature Organic coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 1/2 tbsp sprinkles
  • Buttercream Glaze
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 2 1/2 tbsp heavy cream

Pancake Instructions:

  • Spray a griddle or skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients for the pancakes until completely blended. 
  • Pour the pancake batter onto the griddle or skillet (I use about ⅓ cup of batter for each pancake)
  • Cook until the edges are dry. Turn; cook until golden.

Buttercream Glaze Instructions:

  • Combine all of the glaze ingredients in a small bowl and stir together until it reaches desired consistency. 
  • Feel free to add more milk to make the glaze thinner. If it gets too thin, add a little more powdered sugar. 
  • Drizzle the glaze over the pancakes and top with sprinkles, crumbled granola and whipped topping.

    We tried these pancakes for breakfast this morning and the kids and I gobbled them right up. So tasty! We just ate them with syrup, but I sure want to do the glaze next time because that would just have bumped them up a level. I could even see us doing these as a fun, quick dessert some time. Thanks as always for your wonderful recipes!
