Celebrate birthdays the delicious way with birthday cake sheet pan pancakes (think funfetti cake turned into yummy pancakes)! Sheet pan breakfast recipes are a perfect way to feed hungry mouths without spending a ton of time in the kitchen cooking!
Birthdays are a big deal in our house and so we like to celebrate all day long. We start birthdays with birthday cake sheet pan panckes because they are an easy way for everyone to celebrate the birthday without anyone having to stand over the stove making stacks of pancakes.
We created these birthday cake sheet pan pancakes because my daughter would request funfetti pancakes every year for her birthday. I either had to rush to work or she had to rush to school so I found a way to make more pancakes faster so everyone could enjoy them.
The ingredients to make these funfetti sheet pan pancakes are pretty simple. I always add additional sprinkles to the batter and on top but that is purely optional!
You will definitely need a rimmed sheet pan to make these. I always line mine with nonstick foil too make them extra easy to get out of the pan.
Want to make them even more like a cake? Use a round biscuit cutter to make circles and stack them up!
Of course, I know you are wondering: do these really taste like funfetti cake? I can confirm 100% that they do. They have that perfect vanilla cake with sprinkles flavor. I can also confirm that, when I was recipe testing, I had all the kids asking me to make them every day for at least a week!
We do a light powdered sugar glaze on top but you can switch that out with a buttercream icing for an extra decadent treat if you want.
Some other times these funfetti sheet pan pancakes would be great:
- Valentine’s Day (add heart shaped sprinkles and pink icing)
- Halloween (change out the sprinkles to Halloween colors)
- Bridal shower brunch
- Baby shower brunch
- Father’s Day (dad’s love pancakes too)
These are so fun to make and definitely a great way to get the kids involved in the kitchen if they are interested too. Just don’t forget the candles when you are celebrating with these birthday cake sheet pan pancakes.
