Celebrate your next birthday breakfast with these delicious and easy sprinkle birthday cake muffins! They’re full of colorful party sprinkles and bake in 15 minutes or less.




  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease your muffin pan with non-stick spray or line with cupcake liners if desired.
  • In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add in sugar and brown sugar and mix until combined.
  • In a separate bowl stir together milk, greek yogurt, eggs, vanilla, lemon juice and olive oil.
  • Begin adding the dry mixture to the wet mixture and stir until just combined. Do not overmix*
  • Stir in 3/4 cup of rainbow sprinkles and gently mix with a spoon until they’re evenly mixed in the batter.
  • Using a medium cookie dough scoop, scoop the batter into muffin cups, filling them 2/3 of the way full.
  • Sprinkle additional rainbow sprinkles on top of each muffin to make them extra pretty.
  • Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until slightly browned on the sides.*
  • Remove muffins from tins and let them cool on a baking rack for 5 minutes before serving.
  • Store leftover birthday cake muffins in an airtight container for up to 3 days.


  • Do not overmix your batter. With muffins you want to stir by hand until just combined. This will prevent the muffins from getting too dry.
  • The amount of time these muffins will take will depend on your oven, so I recommend starting with the lower time, checking them, and adding additional time if needed. Again you don’t want to overcook the muffins as this will make them dry.
  • Sometimes depending on the weather, you might need a little extra moisture in the batter. If the batter looks a little too dry, you can always add some extra milk to even things out. Start by adding 1 tbsp at a time.
