Blueberry Pancake Muffins

I recently reread one of my favorite contemporary romance series where one of the book’s MC is a baker who bakes these blueberry pancake muffins. Ever since I read about this the first time, I’ve wanted to find a similar recipe to try out. Luckily, The Pioneer Woman shared her Pancake Mini-Muffin recipe!

Now, in her recipe post she made them mini muffins as the title suggests and I did as well. I’m sure you could make them larger if you chose to do so. Just know that I’m not if the times would be the same.


The Ingredients

  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoons Salt
  • 2-1/2 cups Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon White Vinegar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • Blueberries (optional)
  • Warm Syrup, For Serving

What also seems great about this recipe is that I’m sure you could decide on a different optional ingredient other than blueberries – you can go plain or I’m sure you could go sweet and add chocolate chips.


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. (**See note below.)
  2. Sift together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Stir together the milk and vinegar and let it sit for 1 minute. Whisk in eggs and vanilla.
  4. Combine dry ingredients and wet ingredients, then stir in melted butter. If batter is too thick, stir in a little milk.
  5. Spray a mini-muffin pan generously with baking spray. Fill cups 2/3 full. If using blueberries, drop 2 to 3 blueberries into each cup.
  6. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Let sit in the pan for 1 to 2 minutes, then turn them out of the pan. (Use a small knife if any are stubborn.)
  7. Serve warm with warm syrup!

**425 will result in crisper edges. For a softer muffin, bake at 400 for 11 minutes.

Also, I made the mistake of using leftover mini muffin tin liners. I highly suggest that you do not make the same mistake that I did. Too much of the yummy pancake go stuck to the liner when we went to go eat it. They were fine the next day though.


What’s your favorite flavor pancake? Or are you a waffle person?
