Gluten-free Cake Batter Pancakes

My two favorite treats are cake and pancakes, and to combine them is just genius. I think cake is the perfect birthday breakfast and cake batter pancakes make any start to the day more special. Easy to make, decorate the pancakes with delicious vanilla protein glaze and sprinkles. Add some sparklers or cute candles to surprise a certain someone on their special day.

Cake Batter Pancakes

makes about 12 pancakes

  • 1 1/2 cups of vanilla whey protein powder
  • 2/3 cups of gluten-free yellow cake mix
  • 1 tablespoon of stevia
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1.5 - 2 cups of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • hundreds and thousands 
  1. Combine flour, cake mix, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl and mix. 
  2. Add 1 cup of milk, egg and vanilla extract and stir until smooth. Start with 1 cup of milk and add more if needed; you will want the mixture to be pancake mixture texture (not as thick as cake mix but not runny). Fold into the mixture a few tablespoons of sprinkles. 
  3. Preheat a large fry pan to medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking oil. Pour batter in 1/4 cup measurements and let cook until bubbles form on top, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for 1 minute more. 
  4. Serve with vanilla sauce.
  • 1 cup of vanilla whey protein powder
  • 3 tablespoons of almond milk (warmed)
  • hundreds and thousands 
Mix milk and protein powder until smooth and runny. You may need to add a little more powder or water/milk to reach desired consistency. Drizzle on pancakes.
