Mini Muffin Tin Pancakes

This recipe is very forgiving. It's simply an easy way to make a variety of Pancake Muffins at one time, to serve a crowd.
The idea is to create the flavor of a Pancake, including additional toppings, in an easy Muffin.
If you're familiar with Aebelskivers, this is a version of them. I've added picture of an Aebelskiver Pan and a Gem Pan. I have both of these Pans and we make Aebelskivers in them. They can both be used with this recipe. This recipe is basically an American version of Aebelskivers.
I have an entire post on the Blog with Muffin Tin Recipes.

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
1 - 24 C Mini Muffin Tin, brushed with melted butter or sprayed with a non stick vegetable cooking spray.

This is a traditional Aebelskiver Pan.
I have 2 of these.
One is Cast Iron and the other one is a Non Stick version.

This is my Cast Iron Gem Pan. I have a post about Gems on the Blog.
I use this pan to make Aebelskivers or
 Muffin Pancakes.
This is also the Pan we use to make Ree Drummond's
Buttered, Rosemary and Sea Salt Rolls at Thanksgiving.
This Pan is very versatile. It can be used to make Baked Breakfast Muffins with Hash
Brown Nests and an Egg in the center.

Mini Muffin Tin Pancakes

You can use your favorite Pancake Mix. It can be purchased or homemade.  We like Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix. I use it for my Aebelskivers too. I've included a recipe to make your own mix.

Toppings can be added to each individual cup to bake a variety at one time. We all have our favorite toppings when it comes to Pancakes.

Here are some suggestions for toppings:
Chocolate Chips
Diced Bananas
Diced Strawberries
Warm Maple Syrup as a garnish after they're baked.
Dust with Confectioner's Sugar after they're baked.

When you add a dollop of Jam or Nutella it's the same as an Aebelskiver.
I have an Aebelskiver Pan but you're limited to the amount you can make at one time.
This way you can make up to 24 Pancake Muffins at once.

Homemade Pancake Mix:

1 1/2 C All Purpose Flour ( not cake flour, not whole wheat flour, just basic white flour)
2 TBS Sugar
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 C Milk
2 Eggs, beaten
1 tsp Vanilla extract
Maple Syrup, Confectioner's Sugar and Butter for serving.

In a bowl mix:
Baking Powder
Baking Soda

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and gradually add the Milk
Add the Eggs and Vanilla and whisk until mixed ( it's ok if it has lumps)

Fill each well with batter.
Top with your favorite ingredients.
Bake for 12 minutes.

Serve warm.
Top with Warm Maple Syrup, Drizzled with Melted Butter or simply Dusted with
Confectioner's Sugar.

Peace in the Kitchen!
