My daughter’s 14th birthday was yesterday, and we started a new birthday tradition…birthday pancakes! It’s a recipe that I adapted from Rachael Ray, and these colorful pancakes are a happy way to start anyone’s birthday celebration!
- 1 box Pillsbury Funfetti cake mix
- powdered sugar
Prepare cake mix according to package directions.
Preheat a non-stick electric skillet to 325.
Spoon the batter onto the heated skillet making 3" pancakes - don't make them any bigger or they'll be difficult to flip!
Flip after approximately 3 minutes (they won't get bubbles on the top like regular pancakes).
Cook an additional 2 - 3 minutes or until done.
Mix together powdered sugar and water until drizzly.
Drizzle over pancakes and top with sprinkles and a candle of course!

If you’re regular reader of The Budget Diet, you know that I love traditions because they are inexpensive little ways to create BIG, wonderful memories! It’s never to late to start traditions for birthdays, Easter, back-to-school or Christmas.
Beyond pancakes, there are so many wonderful (and inexpensive) birthday traditions to make your child feel special. I promise, silly little traditions will be remembered long after any toy you give.
- Decorate their bedroom door.
- Wake them up singing happy birthday.
- Write Happy Birthday on the car windows.
- Make a special dinner.
