Looking for a quick and easy breakfast that will satisfy the whole family’s flavor cravings? Then you want to make Muffin Mix Pancakes!
I love making muffin mix pancakes because my son only likes chocolate chip pancakes – and personally I despise chocolate chip pancakes. BUT I do like blueberry pancakes! Or wild berry. Or strawberry cheesecake. Or banana nut. None of which he will eat.
Martha White has come to the rescue! You can make pancake mix from any delicious flavor of Martha White muffin mix! (Yes, even the double chocolate ones!) Making sure everyone can have the flavor they love for breakfast without having to have a lot of extra ingredients around like chocolate chips, fresh blueberries, bananas, or walnuts.
And, I have found that if you have any mix left over (and since we make two or three flavors each time we have them, we DO have mix leftover) you can store it in the fridge in an airtight container and it makes just as delicious pancakes the next day too! And, since it’s already mixed up, it’s even quicker than it already was the day before!
So, how do you make muffin mix pancakes?
You’ve probably seen the meme going around Facebook that says you just need 2/3 cup of milk and an egg and you’re good to go. And while that does work for the most part, it’s not quite that straightforward if you want the best pancakes possible.
What you need for Muffin Mix Pancakes varies based on the flavor.
For Chocolate Chip, Blueberry, Strawberry Cheesecake and Wildberry, an egg and 2/3 cup of milk is just too much liquid – it makes for runny batter which makes for flat pancakes. Add an egg and only 1/2 cup of milk for less runny batter and a fluffier pancake.
But for Double Chocolate Chip I used an egg and 2/3rd cup of milk and they turned out well.
And finally, for Banana Nut I used an egg, 2/3rd cup of milk and 1 Tbsp oil.
There are other flavors I still need to try too, like Lemon Poppy Seed and Apple Cinnamon. I can’t wait!
I hope you enjoy muffin mix pancakes for breakfast real soon!
Don’t forget, you can refrigerate unused batter for an even quicker breakfast the next morning!
