Pinterest can be hit or miss... sometimes you find life-changing pins, while others just ruin your oven/washing machine/hair... yeah they can be disasters! That's why I'm here though-- I'll test them out before you set your kitchen on fire!
The "puffin" pin has been going around for a bit now... I tried it over the weekend and let me tell you, I will never make muffins or pancakes again! These were so easy and delicious. The cleanup was a piece of cake and they turned out perfectly!
All you need is "instant" pancake mix... the kind where you just add water. Any brand will do! Make up your mix, and make it slightly thicker than if you were making pancakes on a griddle. Add anything you want (chocolate chips, blueberries, banana slices) or nothing at all! Grease a mini muffin pan, and fill each cup about 2/3 of the way.
Toss in the oven at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes, until they're just starting to brown on top. Poke with a toothpick to make sure they cooked all the way (toothpick needs to come out clean).
TAAAAH DAAAAH! Adorable for a brunch party with bowls of syrup for dipping, or perfect for on-the-go breakfasts your kids can eat in the car!
