pancake muffin recipeI cannot believe that I have never posted these little gems until now.  They are one of the most requested treats in my home and I make them all the time.  These little muffins have all the flavor of pancakes, but none of the work.  I love pancakes, but sometimes, standing over the stove watching everyone eat while I am still flipping pancakes can make me cranky.  These are super quick to mix together and they are finished baking by the time the last bowl goes into the dishwasher.

These Pancake Muffins came from the adorable Bakerella.  I have made very slight changes.  We like our pancakes to have a little cinnamon and vanilla in them, so I included both in this recipe.  I also make a glaze for them, but you could do as Bakerella does and dip them directly into maple syrup.  Or eat them straight up.  They are delicious any which way you eat them.

Speaking of maple syrup, I only use pure maple syrup.  It is expensive, but the flavor and quality is far superior to the imitation syrups.
