Happy New Year and A Much Awaited Post

pancake muffin iiHappy New Year!

I’ve been baking, of course, and I hope to share some wonderful recipes with you in 2013. I love finding a new recipe, or uncovering an old one and sharing.

I must apologize.  I’ve been meaning to post for quite some time and things just keep getting in the way.  The holidays for one.  This year they really seemed to consume much of my time.  Between baking and cooking, not to mention shopping, I lost track of time.

Plus Meeshie’s been busy too.  She joined the orchestra.  My little girl plays the viola.  That means practice three times a week, two of those times translates to an even earlier morning.  .

I’ve been making this simple recipe that I call pancake muffins.  Basically, they are pancakes made in a muffin tin.  Perfect for those early mornings on the go or for your daughter’s lunch.  They store well in a Ziploc bag in the freezer.  They can easily be adapted to incorporate any filling you like in a pancake.

  • Pancake batter (I use this recipe, but use whatever you like)
  • Maple Syrup
  • Fruit or Sausage

Prepare the pancake batter and set aside.  Lightly grease your muffin tin.  Spoon about 1 1/2 to 2 T of batter in the bottom of the muffin tin.  Drizzle the batter with maple syrup, top with either fruit or sausage, or both.  I use the sausage links from Costco that are precooked.  Top with 1 1/2 to 2 T of batter to cover most of the filling.  The batter will spread.  Bake in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes or until firm to the touch.

Makes about 2 dozen muffins.




  1. I love this idea! Anything bite-size usually goes over really well with my kids. Sadly, they don’t care for breakfast sausage, but would just the addition of maple syrup still work? I hope Meeshie is continuing to enjoy the orchestra. I really wished I had learned to play an instrument in my younger school years!

    • Allison-
      The syrup would be fine, but what about some fruit? I just made it again this weekend and added fruit to the center. So good, especially since it’s a great eat on the run breakfast.

Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing feedback!
