Mini Puffed Oven Pancakes

You know I LOVEEEEE me a puffed oven pancake, and I've been making these cute mini version - they're the BEST!

I love how you can add all sorts of toppings and they are so easy to make. They also do really well being refrigerated and then reheated the next day or the day after. This recipe makes twelve, and I have to stop myself from eating all 12 in one day, so I'm lucky they keep so well!

Mini Puffed Oven Pancakes
These are the perfect breakfast food: delicious, versatile, and oh-so easy to make!
Ingredients
  • 1-2 tbsps. Butter
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1/2 cup 1% or 2% Milk
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 tbsp. Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
Instructions
Preheat your oven to 375F. Make sure your top rack isn't too high because the puffed pancakes will rise a lot.Spray a non-stick muffin pan with a thin layer of cooking spray. In the bottom of all 12 muffin holes add a very thin slice of butter (see photo below for reference) and place it in the oven for a few minutes as it heats up, and take it out once the butter is melted.In a large bowl, mix all ingredients (not the butter).Mix well, until all ingredients are incorporated and most of the flour is broken up. It's okay if there are a few flour chunks still.Add the mix to the muffin pan. Divided equally, each muffin hole will take just over 2 tbsp. of batter each.Cook for 10-13 minutes, or until very puffy and slightly golden brown. It took 10 minutes in my oven.They will shrink quickly when they come out, but they still taste great! Serve with whipped cream, syrup, and berries or whatever you'd like! Enjoy!

 This shows you how much butter I put in each space of the muffin pan.

 This is about a minute or two after they come out of the oven. They're twice this size as soon as they come out!

That's it! If you use a bit less sugar or a bit less butter, they'll still turn out great - this is just how I do it! Experiment with how you like them best, and try out all sorts of toppings. It's hard to go wrong!

Hope ya love 'em!
