I like pancakes. And, really...who doesn't?
What I don't like is flipping pancakes, trying to find a way to keep them all warm without getting soggy, or else letting others eat while you keep cooking.
THEN, I stumbled upon Bakerella's recipe for mini pancake MUFFINS.
I said MUFFINS.
This is an amazing idea. No more flipping!
I have to admit, though, I didn't take the time to make my pancake batter from scratch like she did. Being a new mom, sleep and time are both elusive, and I don't want to try and measure out ingredients first thing in the morning. Perhaps I will in a few months (or years), but for now, I just jazzed up a pancake mix we have in the cupboard.
This is seriously easy, folks. All I used was pancake mix, water, and mini chocolate chips. This go 'round I also added chopped walnuts (not pictured).
Just stir up your pancake batter to the consistency you like and divide evenly in a mini muffin pan. (BTW, make sure you generously spray your pan beforehand with non-stick spray...just to make life easier once they're baked. Trust me on this one.)
Bake in a preheated oven for 8-9 minutes and PRESTO! You now have mini pancake muffins.
You know, I like the sound of pancake poppers or pancake dippers. That's essentially what you do with them if you don't add sweets. Pour yourself a little ramekin of syrup and dunk away. How easy is that?!
