In A Pinch Pancake Batter Muffins

Ever have a muffin craving, and need it fixed NOW? Or maybe you just want to whip up a quick batch with minimal effort. Or perhaps your pantry is looking a bit bare, with just a stray box of pancake mix on the shelves??

This recipe uses pancake mix as a base, and any flavors can be added in!!



  • 2 1/2 cups pancake mix
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • Any "add ins" you want
    • like chocolate chips, berries, nuts, seeds, flavourings, etc!


  • In a large bowl, combine pancake mix and sugar. In another bowl, whisk the egg, water and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Add a little extra water if too dry. Blend in any add ins!
  • Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 400° for 14-16 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1 dozen.

I added in some lemon juice and poppy seeds for a delicious twist!!!

My carefully chosen mix (ie the one I found in my mother's pantry) was PC Blue Menu Whole Grain Pancake mix:

But any kind/brand will work! 

Happy baking!
