Can I use the “just add water” pancake mix?

You can use any variety of store bought pancake mix. I typically choose the “just add water” mix because the muffins are a little moister.  

Ingredients

Pancake Mix: Any pancake mix will work for this recipe. Choose your favorite!

Milk: Whole milk will make the richest muffins, but 2% or nonfat milk will work fine too.

Oil: This adds moisture to the muffins. Use your favorite baking oil, like canola oil or vegetable oil.

Vanilla Extract: The vanilla adds flavor that makes these muffins taste like they are scratch made!

Fun Stuff: ¾ cup of desired inclusions (blueberries, chocolate chips, nuts, etc.)

How to Make Funfetti Pancake Mix Muffins

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake liners, if desired, or spray the pan with nonstick spray.
  • Whisk the milk, eggs, oil, and vanilla extract in a large bowl.

  • Add the pancake mix and sugar and whisk until combined.

  • Option One: Stir the inclusions into the batter. Then fill each muffin cup ¾ full.
  • Option Two: Fill each muffin cup with 2 tablespoons of the batter, filling about 1/3 of the way full. Add 1 tablespoon of your desired inclusion onto the batter. Top the inclusions with an additional 2 tablespoons of batter, filling each cup about ½-inch from the top of the liners. Stir the batter with a toothpick.

  • Bake for 18-23 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
