• pancake muffins {lifehack}

    filed under: Muffins on May 4, 2015

    With a large family breakfast usually goes one of two ways:

    1. Make just enough and everyone is happy and full.

    2. Make way too much and have lots of leftovers.

    LIFEHACK! Pancake Muffins~ seriously the best!

    (or does this happen with every size family??)

    Well, this sweet “lifehack” is kinda the best find ever. I am still making the same ole delicious pancake recipe we love, but they are in muffin form.

    LIFEHACK! Pancake Muffins~ seriously the best!

    So. As everyone finishes up their breakfast and says, “My belly is SO full!” and “I am stuffed!” I simply put the pancake muffins on a plate and set aside.

    One hour later when people start wondering back in the kitchen claiming they are starving I get to say, “Grab a pancake muffin!”

    They happily do.

    And I don’t roll my eyes and wonder how one goes from being full to starving in 4 minutes.

    pancake muffins


        • 1 1/2 c (187g) all-purpose flour
        • 3 tsp. baking powder
        • 1 tsp. salt
        • 1 tbsp. white sugar
        • 1 1/4 c (280g) milk
        • 1 tsp. McCormick® vanilla
        • 1 egg
        • 3 tbsp. (43g) butter, melted


        1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
        2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, vanilla, egg, and melted butter; mix until smooth.
        3. Using a 1/4 cup as a scoop, put batter into a muffin tin that has been greased/sprayed/buttered.
        4. Choose your garnish (fruit, bacon, egg, chocolate chip) and use about a tablespoon for each muffin. Be sure to press the garnish down into the batter.
        5. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
        6. Best served warm and with syrup.

        Here is a quick video on how I made them!

        We have since made these with chocolate chips which the kids absolutely love. I mean, of course, they do. It’s chocolate.

        I love the versatility of this awesome breakfast treat and love that it is so easy. I also love that our delicious breakfast turns into an all-day long snack!

        DID ANYBODY ELSE MAKE THIS EXACT RECIPE??? I did and it was so salty that we could not eat it. May be there was a misprint somewhere in the measurements?? I followed exactly as it says and was disappointed that I had to throw it all away.
        did anyone else’s come out way to salty???
