How to Make Muffins with Pancake Mix
Time needed: 12 minutes.
Pancake Mix Muffins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put regular or mini muffin liners in muffin pan or spray with non stick cooking spray.
In a bowl whisk together milk, eggs and pancake mix until smooth. Gently fold in berries or chocolate chips. Fill muffin holes with about 2 tbsp. of batter, no more than 3/4 of the way full.
Now bake for 12-14 minutes for mini, or about 18 min. for regular sizes. Take out when top springs back when touched lightly.
Allow to cool slightly, dip into maple syrup and enjoy.
You can use this batter to make blueberry muffin tops too. Pancake muffins are really fun for kids to grab and go in the morning too. In about 15 minutes you can have them done and ready to enjoy. Everyone loves pancakes so why not give these a whirl right?
If you make homemade pancakes regularly you could make a double batch and make these with the other half. 1/4 cup is about right to fill standard size muffin cups so you can make a decent batch in little to no time.
If you do have leftovers they save rather well if you store them correctly. Remember that air is the enemy. Keeping that in mind you want to slide them into a freezer bag once they are at room temperature in one layer. Suck all of the air out of that bag and leave on the counter, not the fridge.
The cold will dry them out much faster and it’s already been baked so they don’t need to stay in the refrigerator. In the next 48 hours take a few out and eat as is or warm in the microwave for 30 seconds and top with some butter. That will add a bit more moisture to fluff them up once again.
The possibilities are really endless once you get this down pat. Add chocolate chips to some and fresh fruit to others and have a buffet for breakfast with lots of choices for everyone.
