How To Make Pancake Muffins
Mix dry ingredients – The dry ingredients in this recipe include self raising flour and granulated (caster) sugar. You’ll also need a tiny pinch of salt to balance out the flavors. Make sure you sift all the dry ingredients into a large bowl.
Mix wet ingredients – In a separate bowl, you’ll need to combine together egg, milk and vanilla extract. All the ingredients need to be at room temperature. Apart from vanilla extract, you can add your favorite flavorings like ground cardamom or cinnamon.
Combine dry and wet ingredients – Mix all the ingredients together to get a smooth batter. It needs to be lump-free with the same consistency of regular muffin batter.
Add butter and toppings – Melted and cooled butter is a key ingredient in this recipe. Stir this into the muffin batter. But remember, do not over mix. Play around with the toppings depending on the kind of ingredients you have on hand.
Bake – We are going to bake these muffins at a slightly higher temperature, about 190 C. Once they come out of the oven, cool completely and store in airtight containers. You can even freeze them for a delicious “breakfast on the go”.
