Breakfast or dessert? These pancakes – made from cake batter – are a real treat for any birthday boy or girl!
So, today is my birthday. And since I’ve been wanting to make these Birthday Cake Pancakes, I knew this would be the perfect chance! And get this – those are just made from cake batter. Truly a decadent breakfast!! Make sure you keep the size to 3-inch pancakes. Anything larger is just too hard to flip.
I’ve been dying to try to re-create my favorite birthday cake from my childhood – but from scratch, so I will be attempting to do that today. (Yes, I totally want to make my own birthday cake!) Hopefully all will go well and I’ll be sharing the recipe tomorrow!
