Strawberry Cake Mix Pancakes Recipe

This is actually what I made Emma Ramey for her birthday breakfast.  I might or might not have stood at the oven eating pancakes while I made them.

They are so good. SO insanely good.  Of course this isn't an everyday kind of breakfast, but this is so perfect for a holiday or a birthday treat.  And you're throwing in a few strawberries...that makes it sort of healthy, right? ;)

Here's the recipe!

Strawberry Cake Mix Pancakes


For the pancakes:
1 box strawberry cake mix
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 cup canola oil
10 strawberries, depending on size, chopped (You could even reserve a few to top finished pancakes.)
Whipped Cream

For the icing:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon half and half
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, flour, and baking powder with a fork.  Add in eggs, milk, and oil; whisk well.  Once well combined, fold in chopped strawberries.

Pour 5-6 inch pancakes on a hot griddle and cook 2-3 minutes on each side, until sides are starting to brown.

While pancakes are cooking, combine sugar, half and half, and vanilla until mixture is smooth.

Spread a spoonful of icing between each layer of pancakes to serve.  Top with a generous portion of icing, whipped cream, sprinkles, and strawberries.
