Blueberry Muffins with Pancake Mix

Can I replace all purpose flour with pancake mix?

Yes, in a pinch this is a good alternative. It has leavening agents, sugar and flavorings in it already so just use a 1:1 ratio and you should be fine.

What can you do with leftover pancake batter?

Make muffins with pancake mix! Just add berries or some cinnamon and nutmeg to make a Fall flavored bite of goodness. We will show you here how long and at what temp. to bake them at in your oven.

What is the best pancake mix to use?

I typically choose Krusteaz Light & Fluffy or Aunt Jemima. It depends on what store I am in and the price of each but those are my top choices.

Is pancake mix the same as Bisquick?

It is the same other than the sweetness. If you’re using the latter you might want to add a bit of sugar into the mix so it’s more like a breakfast than a biscuit.

Get started as you usually do when you’re making this popular morning dish.

From there you’ll just prepare as you normally would with any other type of muffin recipe you have. Make normal or mini sizes, the only difference will be the cook time.

Pancake Mix Muffins

  1. Prepare

    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.

  2. Bake

    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.

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.
