Mini Pancake Muffins
I am on a mini muffin pan kick! This recipe came from a blog called Live.Love.Eat. http://www.stephscafe.blogspot.com/. My favorite type of recipe is one that's quick easy, and with ingredients that I already have on hand. This took me about a nanosecond to put together, and it only takes 10 minutes to bake!
I never have buttermilk on hand, so I substituted with milk and lemon juice. It 's a 1 cup milk to 1 tblsp ratio, mix and let it sit for 5 minutes, and your ready to go! Also the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of chocolate chips or blueberries, but I didn't have either on hand, so I didn't use any!
My suggestions with this recipe:
-Add the chocolate chips or blueberries! These are fine without them, but aren't blueberry and chocolate pancakes better than plain ones?? I need to go buy some and make these again!
-The blogger that I got this from suggests to use a little less chocolate chips than 1/2 cup, because they were a little overpowering.
I know these are good because I turned around and someone ate them all!
