Mini Blueberry Pancake Muffins

Today's National Pancake Day, so I wanted to make sure you had an easy way to partake in the celebration.

I used boxed pancake mix for this, partly because that's what we had on hand and partly because this was a fairly spur of the moment idea.  Joe's mom usually gives us a box of breakfast stuff every year for Christmas, so we pretty much always have pancake mix in the cabinet.  Perfect when you just want to whip some up super quickly. 

These are definitely going on our "make again" list.  Joe and I LOVE breakfast for dinner, but it can be awfully time consuming and intensive for just the two of us.  We'll sometimes get friends together and cook for them, which doesn't make pancakes/french toast, bacon and home fries any less time consuming, but does make it feel more worth it when you're cooking for five or six people than just for two.

Awhile ago I saw something online that suggested doing this and mentally filed it away for a rainy day.  Or, in this case, a Sunday that included the conversation, "shoot, it's 3pm, what are we making for dinner?".  Heather to the rescue! 

Mini Blueberry Pancake Muffins

Grease a 24-count mini muffin tin and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix up 2 cups of your favorite pancake mix. 

Spoon your pancake batter into well-greased mini muffin tins. 

Top with blueberries (or other topping of choice) and bake for 11 minutes. 

Let cool for a couple of minutes and use a sharp knife to help you get them out of the tins.  Serve with maple syrup for dipping.

I got about 36 minis out of 2 cups of batter, which was perfect for just the two of us.

What are your favorite pancake toppings?
