Start your kids birthday with a very special birthday cake pancake stack.
Isn't that the perfect way to start the day? The best part is you can make the pancakes the night before so you aren't rushed, especially if their birthday falls on a school day. Just heat, assemble, and enjoy!
I made mini pancakes because I knew the kids would think they are fun, plus you can stack them and still keep them an edible portion size without any going to waste. I think if I stacked larger ones, they simply wouldn't be able to eat the whole thing.
What you need:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- non-stick cooking spray
alternatively: use 2 cups self-raising flour instead in place of the all-purpose flour and baking soda.
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a medium-sized bowl and set aside.
In a larger bowl cream together the sugar and egg. Whisk the eggs and add them to the mixture along with the vanilla. Combine thoroughly on low speed with a blender.
To ensure the pancakes were the same size I used four round metal tings on top of my griddle. Just spray them with a little non-stick spray before each use.
Pour a little mixture into each metal ring, leaving about 2-3mm from the top. The pancakes will rise a little and if you fill to the top the mixture will overflow.
Once the mixture has risen, looks thick on top and bubbles begin to appear flip it over. Once cooked remove the pancake from the pan and place on a cutting board. Using a knife or fork carefully remove the metal ring and place it back on the griddle, spray it a little again and make your next batch.
Top your pancakes with Reddi-wip and sprinkles, pop in a candle and celebrate.
