Funfetti Cake Batter Pancakes Recipe

5 stars from 1 rating of Funfetti Cake Batter Pancakes

Craving Cake Batter and Sprinkles!

I had a little over half a box of Funfetti Cake Mix left over from Funfetti Dip taunting me from my pantry. Every time I went to grab peanut butter, rice cakes, almonds, or anything else for that matter, that box stared me straight in the face, begging me make some delicious creation.

So, I have been talking about cooking up a bunch of pancakes and then freezing them, and decided why not make some Funfetti Cake Batter Pancakes too. It may have been the best decision of my life, at least in my fiancé and daughter's mind. They aren't exactly on my "diet friendly" list, but I am determined to find a way to "healthify" them in the near future.

Ingredients and Directions

You will need the following ingredients.

  • 2 cups Funfetti Cake Mix
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • Sprinkles to your liking
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract (optional)

It is not necessary to use sprinkles or vanilla extract, but I have an obsession with vanilla and add it everything. And I think sprinkles are necessary, but your pancakes will still turn out delicious even if you don't use them.


  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until smooth consistency, about 2 minutes
  2. Heat up skillet to medium low heat. These can burn easily and not cook all the way through if you don't keep an eye on the temperature.
  3. Spray a light layer of cooking oil on the skillet
  4. Measure out about 3 tablespoons of batter and drop on skillet (you may need to spread it out with a spoon as the batter is very thick)
  5. Cook one side for about 1-2 minutes and then flip and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes. Lightly press on the center of the pancake to see if it's done. Depending on thickness, you may need to cook each side for a longer amount of time.
  6. Remove pancake from skillet and repeat until batter is gone
  7. You can serve them warm, immediately or put in a freeze bag or container and freeze.

You have unlimited options when it comes to toppings. You can use butter, syrup of any variety, or my favorite, whipped cream and sprinkles. If you are really feeling daring, use cake icing.

Note: This batter is super thick and can be difficult to manipulate. I did not get pretty, round pancakes. You may try adding more milk to make it thinner, or you could try adding a little bit of oil. Just know that the thinner the batter, the thinner the pancakes. I like my pancakes thick and fluffy. And these are THICK and kind of DENSE. My fiancé ate 4 of them and was stuffed, and usually he can down an entire stack of pancakes.

So, if you find a combination of ingredients that works better, do it, and let me know what changes you made in the comments.

Look at those sprinkles! Yum! Cake Batter!

      I think kids would love it! I'm an adult and I can't resist sprinkles! And eating them afterwards makes the mess so worthwhile. You could even opt to let the kids decorate them!
