Mini Pancake Cups for Breakfast

Some mornings just call for something different, something special to start the day off, so you make some pancakes, or mini pancake cups. Or maybe you just ran out of bread and oatmeal the day before you get groceries like us, and you have to make something to feed your children. Which is what happened to me this morning, just gotta feed the kids, anything that I could make before they started eating me!

Isn’t it funny how your kids will eat something like they were straving when you just change one little thing like the shape of it. That’s how it was with these pancake cups. Not that they don’t usually eat pancakes like crazy too, but these barely touched their plates before they were gone.

The reason for the mini pancakes would be because I’m horrible for standing at the frying pan and not burning the pancakes, plus these are done just that much faster. I made a double batch which gave me 22 muffins.

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

How to make Mini Pancake Cups

  1. Mix together your egg, butter, vanilla, and baking powder together. Then alternate adding flour and milk to the mix.
  2. In a greased muffin tin add your pancake batter, filling your cups about 3/4 full.
  3. I topped some with chocolate chips and some with blueberries. You could also add them right into the batter, which my kids would have preferred I think.
  4. Bake for about 15 minutes, they will be slightly golden, bouncy to the touch.
  5. After baking, let them sit for a few minutes before removing to a cooling rack. Ours fall out of the tin, when I tipped it slightly, and actually bounced across the counter.
