  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup white or yellow cake mix
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup rainbow sprinkles
  • for serving: additional sprinkles and whipped cream


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cake mix, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined (a few small lumps are okay). Let the batter sit for 10 minutes.
  • While the batter is resting, preheat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat. When the griddle is heated, stir in the sprinkles. Lightly grease the griddle, and pour the batter by 1/4 cup scoops onto the hot griddle.
  • Cook 3-4 minutes, or until there are bubbles all over the tops of the pancakes, then flip and cook and additional 2-3 minutes, until browned on the bottom.
  • Serve warm with whipped cream and sprinkles.
