Nothing says “birthday” louder than pancakes using cake batter. Imagine how happy your kid is when he/she opens his/her eyes and sees a whole batch of fluffy pancakes with all the colorful sprinkles on top!
Just remember not to overmix your batter so that the pancakes are fluffy as usual. And you can add buttercream or vanilla glaze on top for more sweetness.
This dish is not only suitable for a birthday breakfast but can also be eaten as a snack throughout the day. And making it is really a piece of cake. Choose ripe bananas and slice them into bite-sized portions.
Then you can make a tiny sandwich with two banana slices and peanut butter in between. That alone is delicious enough, but since it’s a birthday breakfast, why not make it more glamorous with a chocolate coating?
One color is never enough for a birthday breakfast. The more colors, the merrier! So, how about trying these rainbow waffles? Divide the waffle batter into small bowls and add food coloring to your liking.
Adding more color drops means your rainbow will be bolder and more vibrant. For finishing touches, serve the waffles with maple syrup and berries. Or better, use whipped cream or vanilla ice cream to make several clouds for the rainbow.
Let’s learn how to make a perfect rainbow waffle with this video!
When I say, “Let’s make some skewers for breakfast”, you might think that’s an unhealthy and heavy way to start a day. But these kabobs can be healthy and still provide you with enough energy for a birthday.
Make some mini pancakes, then spread a layer of Nutella on top of each pancake. And layer them with all the fruits like bananas, all kinds of berries,… onto the kabob sticks. Now, you can enjoy this healthy, filling breakfast!
Some may think cereal is too dull to be a birthday breakfast, but this won’t happen if this “cereal” is pancake! This dish is so viral that it has become a trend on TikTok. So why don’t you try it at your house?
The best part about this idea is you don’t have to stick with milk like regular cereal. Maple syrup is the classic option with pancakes, and you can also add chocolate chips, honey, whipped cream, etc. For a healthy choice, let’s go all out with fruits like bananas, strawberries, and many more.
Strawberry scones make a perfect breakfast in bed for a birthday girl. Sweet scones with fresh, slightly sour strawberries and a cup of tea can make anyone feel so happy to start their day.
You can even add cream to the scones for more richness. And a sweet glaze made from almonds is a proper combination with this dish.
This video will show you all the necessary details in baking strawberry scones.
Do you know in Japan, people often eat strawberry shortcakes on their birthday? While America doesn’t have that “tradition”, you can make a small one to celebrate your family member’s birthday right in the morning.
Strawberry shortcakes come in multiple forms, from the original sponge cake to convenient cookies. No matter what styles, they all taste good with rich cream and sweet strawberries.
If only strawberries are not luxurious enough for a birthday breakfast, how about using a mix of all berries you can find. Mixed berry French toast bake is a dish like that. It contains at least four kinds of berries: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries.
Of course, you can leave out or add any berry that you want. The flavor doesn’t change much. For the best result, you should prepare the French toast and pour all the berries on top the night before so that the flavor can soak thoroughly.
You’ll make this dish like a professional baker after watching this video.
Are there any better ways to start a fruitful day than this fruity pebbles parfait? With all the colorful layers, even the child who hates fruits the most would start digging right in. Not to mention, this dish provides lots of health benefits with Greek yogurt and fresh fruit.
And it’s elementary to make this parfait. You only need to layer yogurt, fruits, and sugary cereal onto each other. Putting them into a cup or a bowl is a decent choice. But for a birthday breakfast, let’s choose something fancier like a glass jar.
In Australia, a party can’t be called a “party” without fairy bread. No one knows why and how, but this dish has captured all Australian children’s hearts. So, do you want to bring a little magic to your prince/princess on their birthdays?
Despite its name, this recipe can’t be any more simple. It only contains two parts: bread slices with butter spread on top and sprinkle candies. And what’s left to do is cover the bread surface (that has butter) with these candies. That’s it! Sounds easy, doesn’t it?
Mini pop tarts make a sweet breakfast for your birthday. Though it takes longer to complete than normal pop-tarts, the result is worth your effort! The basic process stays the same, and you just have to cut the dough into smaller portions.
Then fill each tart with fruits to your liking. And when waiting for them to bake, make some glazes such as hazelnut mocha, apple cinnamon, strawberry, etc.
What can be more delightful than greeting your birthday with a giant cinnamon roll bundt cake? Its sweet scent can wake up any birthday boy or girl with happiness. And wait until you get to taste its moist and delightful flavor.
And for the best result, remember to use high-quality ingredients in this cake, especially the cinnamon. If your cinnamon has been sitting in the fridge for years, then you’d better buy a new pack. And don’t forget to make a vanilla or caramel glaze to go with it.
As I’ve said, the more colorful, the better. This unicorn bread can absolutely “whoa” your children when they just wake up. And there are no special steps to make this beautiful cake.
Just divide your batter into three portions and dye them in different colors. I often choose pink, purple, and green. But the decision is all yours. Of course, you can add more if you want. Covering the cake with icing and sprinkles is the final step.
A whole visual description on how to make this is waiting for you! Watch this video:
Waffles are often made in one go. But that doesn’t apply to this recipe. As these waffles are made from yeast flour, the batter needs to rest in the fridge for a night. After that, you’ll get a batch of crispy yet tender waffles.
However, if you forget to prepare the batter in advance, you can add one and a half teaspoon of baking powder to the batter. Then, let it rest for half an hour or until there are lots of bubbles on the surface. Use this to bake, and you can get the waffle with nearly the same flavor.
Served warm or cold, this beautiful sweet is a great way to welcome your birthday. It tastes just like a cherry cupcake but flatter with more shapes. You can make this cherry danish with any form, like round, flower, or rectangle.
Cherry danish can match perfectly with various toppings. The most common one is cream cheese glaze and almonds. And you can swap cherries with other fruits like berries or apples.
Sprinkles are not only for garnishing. They can go inside the dish. And when I say “inside”, I mean tossing them right into the batter. Don’t worry, they won’t ruin your sweet. Instead, the inside of your donuts will be dyed in pastel colors.
Also, by baking these donuts, you’ll get a whole basket of fluffy donuts rather than oil-drenching ones. And for the glaze, remember to add a touch of salt to balance the sweetness.
Some crunchiness for breakfast doesn’t hurt anyone, especially if it tastes delicious. And that’s how I would talk about raspberry crumb bars. Unlike neither cookies nor cakes, these crumb bars give a funny crunchy sound when eating.
Also, they are not oversweet, so even adults can enjoy this tasty treat. You can even make crumb bars with different fillings like apricots, mixed berries, peaches, pineapples with coconuts, and many more.

Sometimes, even the word “birthday” can’t make you feel less sleepy. That’s when I make a tropical smoothie bowl to give my head a wake-up call.
It’s straightforward to make a colorful and healthy smoothie bowl. Pick all the tropical fruits you like, such as mango, pineapple, and bananas. Then, blend them with coconut milk until all is smooth and thick. You can use frozen fruits to make the smoothie denser.
Toppings’ limit is your imagination. Passion fruit, blueberries, coconut flakes, pineapple, and there are numerous other options for you. This smoothie bowl would taste better if you leave it one night in the fridge.
9 Flavorful Savory Breakfast Dishes For Birthday Boys/Girls
However, not everyone prefers sweet over savory for breakfast. So, here are nine ideas for a pleasant breakfast for those who want to enjoy their birthday in bed.
Bacon and egg are a traditional combination for breakfast. But being ordinary doesn’t work on birthday breakfast when you need a more special meal. So, let’s twist this old-fashioned dish for a bit and see how it goes.
In this recipe, you’ll wrap bacon around the sizes of a muffin tin hole on the baking tray to make a cup. Then crack an egg into each cup and bake all the cups. For more flavors, you can sprinkle griddled cheese or herbs onto the eggs.
Eggs Benedict certainly tastes fantastic but a bit dull for a birthday breakfast. Let’s twist it into eggs Benedict braid for a fun change. Almost all components are the same as the standard version: eggs, bacon, and Hollandaise sauce.
However, you’ll use puff pastry to replace English muffins. And the eggs need to be slightly scrambled instead of poached. Lay the bacon and eggs on top of the dough in layers before baking. Now, you only have to wait for nearly 25 minutes for the braid to be baked.
Who said savory and sweet couldn’t go together? Let’s try these maple bacon cupcakes before thinking that. The richness of maple syrup, salty bacon, and sweet cupcakes go perfectly with each other.
To get the most of the bacon taste, you can add some bacon fat into the batter. It even makes your cupcakes fluffier. However, too much bacon can drown out maple syrup’s flavor. So dark maple syrup is a decent choice to counter that.
With this, you can make your own maple bacon cupcakes!
Eggs are always a part of savory breakfast, and now they even become more desired when combined with muffins. Eating egg muffins is like having a mini birthday party right on your bed.
You can start making egg muffins with bacon, cheese, and spinach. Then when you are used to it, let’s begin making different mixtures, like cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, asparagus, sausages, ham, etc.
These quick and portable muffins have all your morning musts—eggs, ham, and the like—in just a few bites.
It’s a birthday breakfast, why don’t you make a pizza? Calm down, I don’t mean those high-calorie and time-consuming pizzas in every pizza store. What I intend to make is a pizza omelet.
And just like an omelet, this dish only takes several minutes to cook. It still has all the toppings of a pizza like a mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, tomato sauce, and sausage or ham. However, instead of a crust, you’ll get a fluffy omelet.

You may be wondering what Waffle Monte Cristo Sandwich is. Simply put, it’s an American version of a French sandwich. However, with its name and the delicious taste mixed between the sweet and savory, this sandwich is suitable for a birthday breakfast.
The filling consists of two essential sandwich ingredients: ham and cheese. But with this dish, there’s a twist called raspberry jam. It’s not too sweet to overbalance the flavor but still matches well with the other two components.
Who isn’t on cloud nine on their birthday? And I have a dish that suits your feeling: eggs in clouds. And its name isn’t the only one beautiful. One taste of this treat can take you to clouds for real.
Separate egg whites from egg yolks and whip them until you get a decent thickness. Put some diced bacon and cheese into the egg whites and bake the mixture for 3 minutes. Gently place your egg yolk on top of each egg white, then bake for a bit more.
What’s waiting for you is the fluffy texture of egg whites and the creaminess coming from the yolks.
Let’s see how they turn eggs into fluffy clouds! Watch this video to know more:
Burritos are delicious as a midday snack. But how about for breakfast? Let me tell you, they still taste fantastic! And since they are burritos, you can put anything into the filling.
Want a healthy meal? Let’s go with brown rice, black beans, corn, and guacamole. Need something filling? Fill your burrito with sausage, eggs, and potatoes. Especially if you make it for your birthday, you can forget being healthy and just choose your favorite food.
Everyone always uses scones with a cup of tea or coffee since they’re pretty dry. But with this recipe, you can even devour all of them without drinking anything. Why is it? Because the cheese gives scones a buttery and moist texture.
And to combine with the creamy, gooey cheese, you have tiny salty ham pieces. You can switch ham with bacon for more richness. Add some chives to the batter to enhance the scents of this dish.
