Over the holiday break from school, my son reminded me of something we’d made a long time ago that we hadn’t tried again since: Cake Mix Pancakes.
So, we decided that we needed to make some of these delicious treats again as soon as possible.
These are so simple and super fun to make with kids. You basically use a boxed cake mix as a pancake batter, and then add just a few other ingredients. You can use any kind of cake mix. We’ve used red velvet for Christmas, and that would be fun for upcoming Valentine’s Day as well. Our first foray into Cake Mix Pancakes was with Devil’s Food; that was delicious. We’ve also tried vanilla and lemon. I’d love to try a spice mix, too!
This is a great recipe to make with kids because they can easily stir the batter and help flip the pancakes.
Top these fun and festive pancakes with whipped cream, sprinkles, chocolate chips or anything else you like. They’re fun for holidays, birthdays or just a plain, old Saturday morning.
Cake Mix Pancakes
1 box Brookshire’s Devil’s Food Cake Mix (or your choice of flavor)
1 cup milk
Mix all ingredients together until a thick batter forms. This will be thicker than regular pancake batter, but you still want it to be pourable. Heat a griddle sprayed with nonstick cooking spray to medium heat. Drop 4 heaping tablespoons of batter onto the hot griddle. It will spread, so give yourself plenty of space. Cook on first side until spatula easily slides under cake (the chocolate will burn easily, so watch it closely). Flip and continue to cook through. Remove and serve immediately with butter, syrup or powdered sugar.

Use less milk if you’d like a thicker pancake. The exact number of pancakes will depend on how much milk you use and how big you make the pancakes.
