Birthday cake pancakes!

I made these for my boyf yesterday as a surprise and he absolutely loved them, so I thought I'd share the recipe. 

It wasn't anyone's birthday, and really you could just call these 'cake pancakes' rather than 'birthday cake pancakes' I suppose, but they're a fab treat all the same.

First of all, mix up your cake batter - this makes about 6 - 8 smallish pancakes

1 egg
50g self raising flour
50g caster sugar
50g margarine / butter
A drop of vanilla 
A splash of milk

You want quite a thick consistency so that the batter holds its shape when you put a blob in the pan so if it's too runny add a little more flour or too stiff add more milk

When you see bubbles it's time to flip the pancakes.  They burn easily so use a medium - low heat

As the pancakes are ready, stack them on a plate

Make your icing / sauce using icing sugar and milk (I didn't measure how much I used) then add sprinkles

Pour over your stack for gooey delishiousness

The pancakes are quite thick and sweet, so two was enough for me... 

....but the boyf wolfed down a stack of 5!

I got the idea for these from pinterest which led me to this blog post.  It's an American recipe and it uses a ready made 'yellow cake' mix which I didn't have, so I made up my own recipe.  It might be nicer with the cake mix.  

Let me know if you try this, you won't be disappointed!
