Funfetti Pancakes w. Vanilla Glaze

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6 people 1x


Maybe I should have called these Birthday Cake Pancakes instead.


Units Scale


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs (whites and yolks separated )
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted and cooled)
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup rainbow sprinkles (avoid nonpareils )


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 & 1/2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract


  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, and salt in a large bowl
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, milk, and melted butter.
  3. In yet another bowl, whip the egg whites until they form stiff peaks and set aside.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently fold together with a spatula. There should be lumps, and it should be thick but pourable. Fold in the egg whites, just until incorporated and very gently.
  5. Preheat your griddle over medium-high heat. Coat it 1 tbsp of oil + 1/2 tbsp of butter. 
  6. Add the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla to a bowl and whisk until smooth. Add more milk for a thinner glaze. Set aside.
  7. Pour 1/3 cup of pancake batter per pancake, fitting as many as you can in your pan without the sides touching. Sprinkle on chocolate chips and more sprinkles. Cook until the edges look dry and any bubbles around the edges begin to pop. Flip with a spatula and cook on the other side until done: about a minute or two more. 
  8. Add more butter and oil between batches as needed. Keep warm in a 300° degree oven. Serve drizzled with the glaze.
