Recipe: Birthday Cake Pancakes

OH MY YUM! I found this recipe in Taste of Home: Fun Food Magazine, and altered it to be gluten free. You guys, this one is a must make! I would highly recommend this as a dessert idea that will steal the show. Here is what you'll need:

1 cup pancake mix
1 cup yellow or white cake mix
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups plus 1 tbsp. milk, divided
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup vanilla frosting
1/4 cup sprinkles
additional sprinkles

1. Whisk pancake mix and cake mix. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, and vanilla until blended. Add to the dry ingredients, stirring until moistened. Let stand 10 minutes. Fold in 1/4 cup sprinkles.

2. On a lightly greased griddle over medium heat, pour the batter by 1/4 cupfuls to create six large pancakes. Cook until bubbles on top begin to pop; turn. Cook until golden brown. Repeat using smaller amounts of batter to create pancakes of different sizes.

3. Microwave the frosting and 1 tbsp. milk, covered on high until melted, 10-15 secs. On each of the large pancakes, layer smaller pancakes in decreasing order of size with the smallest on top; drizzle with frosting. Top with additional sprinkles.
