Pancake Minis

In our house we love breakfast so much that we often have “Brinner” ok to be honest, it’s usually once a week. There is just something so comforting and delicious about eating breakfast for dinner. But this post isn’t about my love affair with breakfast, it’s about pancakes. Pancakes, oh the time honored traditional breakfast loved by all, but have you ever noticed that as a mom (or the official pancake maker) that you always eat last? You do all the work and how do you get rewarded? by eating alone, ok so maybe not always, but admit it – this has happened to you! Yesterday I made a couple of pancakes for my daughter and I had quite a bit of batter left over, so I shoved it in the fridge and forgot about it. Until that afternoon when I had a brilliant idea = Pancakes for all, or in other words, pancakes for everyone at the same time. But how you ask? Baked ones of course. I can’t wait to make these for Christmas morning or just any lazy day off, the customizations are endless, enjoy and happy baking!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 c flour
1 c buttermilk, or regular if that’s all you have
2 eggs, extra large
2 Tbs sugar
2 Tbs oil
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon

*optional: feel free to add your favorite pancake mix in, bacon, chocolate chips, blueberries, whatever. If you want to really maximize your batter add different toppings to each individual pancake before baking.

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350º and prepare a 24 cup mini muffin pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Add the buttermilk, oil and eggs and mix until a lumpy batter forms, lumps are good. Spoon 1 Tbs of batter in each well of the muffin pan and bake for 13-15 minutes, until slightly golden and a tester comes out clean. Remove from the oven cool in the pan 5 minutes and serve warm.

Yields 3 – 3 1/2 dozen mini pancakes (I made 3 medium sized pancakes and then 2 dozen minis)

    Ooo, your batter recipe is so different to the one I currently use. I’m so going to have to try that recipe. And YES! I’m always last to have my pancakes. Usually alone popped against the kitchen counter. But baked pancakes? Genius.

    Did you know we have a pancake day here? Shrove Tuesday. Once a year, the kids get to eat as many pancakes as they can possible stuff down their necks without being sick. So going to try these on Shrove Tuesday next year, will save me all the time stood at the oven frying pancakes for a family of 5 – that’s a whole lot!

    I’m a new follower, and I love your site! Beautiful pictures. We eat brinner all the time (probably at least once a week as well) and I’m always looking for a new recipe to jazz things up a bit. Thanks for sharing!

    We love breakfast for dinner in our house too! As a matter of fact I think it’s on this weeks menu so I may have to whip up a batch of these for us to enjoy.
