Mini Pancake Bites
With school starting soon, I thought I would share a quick and easy breakfast that most kids will love.
Pancake Bites are mini pancake muffins that you can dip into syrup and pop in your mouth.
How fun is that!
Speaking of syrup...did you know Epicurious recently named Mrs. Butterworth's the best overall pancake syrup, with Log Cabin coming in as the second runner-up.
We've been using Mrs. Butterworth's syrup forever, so that doesn't surprise me at all.
Pinnacle Foods asked me to come up with a recipe post about delicious ways to use syrup.
I think pancake bites are definitely a delicious way to use Mrs. Butterworth's.
I use my Pampered Chef mini muffin pan to bake them bite size.
I made raspberry,
mini chocolate chip
and blueberry. Next time I may try peaches or strawberries.
You can also freeze them and pop them into the microwave to make your morning even easier!
What are you waiting for?!?
Grab some Mrs. Butterworth's syrup, make some pancake bites and start dipping :)
Mini Pancake Bites
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 T sugar
2/3 cup buttermilk
2 T maple syrup
2 T melted butter
mini chocolate chips and/or fruit of your choice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare mini muffin pan by coating it with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg, maple syrup and melted butter.
Add wet ingredients to dry and stir just until combined.
Since I was making several different varieties, I divided my batter and then added the raspberries, blueberries and chocolate chips.
Using a mini cookie scoop, drop batter into each muffin cup.
Bake for 8-9 minutes. Remove from oven to cool slightly before removing the pancake bites from the pan.
Serve immediately with syrup for dipping.
