Celebrate your next birthday breakfast with these delicious and easy sprinkle birthday cake muffins! They’re full of colorful party sprinkles and bake in 10-15 minutes time. 




  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and grease a 12-cup muffin pan or 24-cup mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. (Alternatively you can use cupcake liners.)
  • In a large mixing bowl add granulated sugar, milk, Greek yogurt, eggs, oil, and vanilla extract, and whisk together until smooth and combined.
  • Next begin adding in the flour in increments and stir until just combined. Do not overmix.*
  • Lastly, add in the rainbow sprinkles, and gently fold in the batter with a spatula until evenly incorporated.
  • Using a medium size cookie scoop, scoop the batter into 12 muffin cups, evenly filling them 2/3 of the way full.
  • If desired, sprinkle rainbow sprinkles on top of each muffin to make them extra pretty.
  • Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until muffins are a light golden brown.
  • After a few minutes, remove muffins from tins and let them cool on a wire cooling rack for 5 minutes before serving.
  • These muffins are best enjoyed fresh, but you can store leftover muffins in an airtight container for up to 2 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.
