  • cup butter, melted and cooled

  • cup milk

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package cake mix with candy bits (such as Pillsbury® Funfetti®)

  • ½ cup whipped cream, or to taste (Optional)

  • 2 teaspoons multicolored candy sprinkles, or to taste (Optional)


  1. Whisk melted butter, milk, and eggs together in a large bowl; whisk in cupcake mix just until ingredients are moistened. It's okay if there are some lumps.

  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

  3. Serve with whipped cream and sprinkles if desired.

I found this mix at the $1.25 store


I used a glass measuring cup that holds 8 cups when assembling the pancake batter.
