Cool & Creative Ways to Use Your Muffin Tins!

Pop Up Pancakes

on July 25, 2012

We’ve been having breakfast for dinner quite a bit lately. The kids LOVE it and it’s fast and easy for me to whip up! I’ve discovered lots of different ways to make breakfast in a muffin tin, but we’ve done them all, so I went on a search for something new and came across this one! Pop Up Pancakes AKA German Pancakes by Marie Lebaron at Make and


Don’t they look WONDERFUL?!! Here’s the recipe…

Pop Up Pancake Recipe – makes 24 muffins or fills a 9×13 baking pan


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • dash salt
  • Preheat oven to 400* and grease your muffin tins


Directions: (from Marie)

1. I like to mix all the ingredients in my blender. I have tried to whisk it or even use my small electric mixer, but a blender seems to do the best job getting it smooth.

2. Pour the mix into your greased muffin tins. Or your baking pan, as my mom likes to bake these in a jelly roll pan.

3. Bake them for 15 minutes in a 400* oven, or until puffy and golden on top. Use a knife to pop or pry them out, hopefully they were greased well enough and should pop right out. They puffiness will die down as they cool, and they become more like a cup.

Now they are ready for toppings. I love syrup, powdered sugar, and fruit. You could even use fresh Strawberry Jam. We usually load it all on and dive in. What do you use to top your pancakes with? Maybe peanut butter or honey?

How can you pass those up? Grab your muffin tins and pancake up! Be sure to tell me what you think, I can’t wait to try them myself! They’re sure to be a HUGE hit with the kids 😉 Good luck!!
