Fluffy and fun sprinkle pancakes! What a special breakfast treat to surprise someone on their special day! These are completely from scratch, no cake mix with artificial ingredients (exception of sprinkles), and no hydrogenated oils. They are soft melt in your mouth pancakes, with white vanilla frosting syrup  that taste like actual birthday cake, and in my opinion even better!

* I also made these with buttermilk and milk, and spelt flour worked well too.
