Bake Fluffy Pancake Muffins For a Smart Make-Ahead Breakfast!

Pancake Muffins

yield: 12 SERVINGS

prep time: 15 MINUTES

cook time: 22 MINUTES

total time: 37 MINUTES

Ingredients

For the pancake batter:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg

Pancake muffin mix-in ideas:

Directions

1

Preheat the oven to 375. Prep a muffin pan with liners or grease it well.

2

To a large batter or mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Whisk together to combine.

 

Tip: Level the flour properly by spooning into the measuring cup and leveling off the top. Do not scoop.

3

Add the milk, vanilla extract, and egg to the bowl and whisk the ingredients together until smooth. Then mix in the melted butter. The batter should be neither super thin nor super thick, yet pourable.

4

Evenly distribute the pancake batter into 12 muffins. Filling 3/4 full seemed to work for me.

5

Add pancake mix-ins to each muffin. You can gently press add-ins down a bit. I did 3 muffins of each flavor.

6

Bake for 22-25 minutes until cooked. You'll know they are cooked through when a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

7

Remove from the oven and let cool. Serve warm with maple syrup drizzle. Enjoy!

Let’s rise and shine with delicious pancake muffins for breakfast!

These kid-friendly muffin-style pancakes are a fun and easy way to make breakfast… and the best part is everyone can choose their own creative mix-ins.

Using a muffin tin is a clever tip for making an entire batch of pancakes at once, and is more convenient than standing at the stove making them individually! If you’re like me and just getting used to the back-to-school routine, try these for a simple yet delicious homemade breakfast idea.

Tips for making the best homemade pancake muffins:

  • Pick any topping your family enjoys like fresh or frozen berries, dried fruit, nuts, etc. The chopped bacon with a maple syrup drizzle is my favorite combo!
  • Pancake muffins can last around 4 days in the fridge when placing them in a container with a lid. They could last for up to a couple of months in the freezer. To reheat, microwave for 30 seconds or so, and enjoy!

What a creative breakfast or brunch idea!

I love that you can customize these however you’d like, and take them to-go if you’re in a rush during busy weekday mornings. My family enjoyed these pancake muffins, and I hope yours does too!

Here’s what my teammate Chelsey said after making pancake muffins:

“These were delicious! Plus, they were super simple to make and you could even make it more simple by using a store-bought pancake mix. My daughter loved helping make them and mixing up the additions (she made a blueberry, chocolate chip, and banana one)!

These would be so great to whip up on a Sunday and then toss in the fridge for the rest of the week for quick breakfasts, especially since your kiddos can customize their favorite flavors. I even found that some of the flavors, like the chocolate chip, I didn’t need the syrup as they were great on their own. The bacon ones are so good, especially with syrup!”


Make my favorite air fryer bacon and egg toast in the air fryer for busy mornings!
