My favorite niece, Rachel, is turning 14 on August 25th. . .
. . .technically, she’s my only niece, but if I had another, she would still be my favorite :-)
I saw this cute idea for birthday cake-pancakes in the August issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray~ and thought it would be fun to join along with Lynn’s Celebrity Cook-Along with Rachael Ray~
A fun coincidence since Rachael Ray also celebrates a birthday on August 25th :-)
These birthday pancakes are one several cake ideas in honor of Rachael Ray’s birthday month in the August issue, using a boxed mix~
You can add sprinkles to your cake mix batter or use a Pillsbury Funfetti Cake Mix. I added them to my powdered sugar glaze instead of the batter~
Mix your boxed yellow cake mix according to package directions~ I used a Pillsbury Moist Supreme Yellow Mix.
Ladle the batter into a nonstick skillet or griddle, and cook like you would cook pancakes~ I got 9 pancakes~ approximately 8″~ out of the box mix, but only used 7 for this cake~
Mix powdered sugar with 2 -3 T of water, milk, or orange juice and drizzle over your stack of “pancakes” and add sprinkles~
Rachel~ We blew out your candles and made a wish that you would come visit us soon!
Happy Birthday Rachel (and Rachael :-)
Thank you for your visit, I’m joining:
Jenny Matlock for Alphabe-Thursday~ this week’s letter is R, for Rachael Ray & Rachel :-)
