Birthday Cake Pancakes

I'm not sure about at your house, but in mine we don't just celebrate birthdays with cake.

We celebrate them with breakfast, too, turning pancakes into mini birthday cakes full of sprinkles and vanilla. And real maple syrup. Because this is Canada, after all.

Of course, it doesn't have to be someone's birthday to whip up a batch of these. These birthday pancakes make every morning worth celebrating.

Birthday Cake Pancakes
makes 12 or so pancakes

2 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar                       
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg

2 1/2 cups well shaken buttermilk
2 large eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
1/4 cup vegetable oil (I used canola)
1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles

Mix dry ingredients together in large bowl.

In a medium bowl, combine wet ingredients (eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, and oil) and stir until blended.

Add the wet ingredient to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Gently mix in the sprinkles. Little lumpy unmixed flour clumps are fine, and even encouraged.

Heat a lightly oiled skillet or griddle to medium low.

When water bounces and dances gently on the skillet, drop ¼ or so of batter onto it.

When bubbles begin to form, gently flip the pancake, and cook until golden brown.

Slather in butter and syrup.
