HOW TO MAKE THE BEST PANCAKES
Pancakes are pretty easy to make, but there are a couple things you can do to make them even better. First, do not over mix! Pancake batter should be whisked just to combine the ingredients. There’s no need to use an electric mixer of any sort, you can mix pancakes just fine by hand.
Second, after your pancake batter is mixed, let it sit for 5-10 minutes. This helps activate the leavening ingredients and helps yield fluffy pancakes! For this recipe, you can pour the batter in the pan, then let it sit before baking them pancakes.
HOW CAN I PREVENT MY MUFFINS FROM STICKING TO THE PAN?
To help keep your muffins from sticking to the pan, I suggest doing one of two things. First, you can use mini muffin liners for this recipe. Seconds, you can spray your muffin tin with non-stick spray that includes flour. This spray is specifically for baked goods and works so well! I never have my baked muffins stick to the pan again!
HOW CAN I EASILY SCOOP OUT THE BATTER FOR THE MUFFINS?
A medium cookie/ ice cream scoop with a lever works perfectly for measuring out mini sized muffins like these! The medium scoop measures about 1.5 tablespoons of batter in each cup.
WHAT KINDS OF FRUIT CAN YOU PUT IN PANCAKES?
You can add a variety of fruit to pancakes with fantastic results! Berries are always a good idea. I used a combination of blueberries, raspberries and diced strawberries in my berry protein pancake bites, but you’re welcome to stick with just one or two. I also think these would be delicious with small bits of banana or raisins in them.
