I love love love breakfast for dinner...or anytime after the actual hours of when you typically eat breakfast. Cupcakes in breakfast form...sold, even better.
I saw this recipe floating around on Pinterest and spiced it up a bit to make it more interesting and the topping a lot more fun.
recipe adapted from Krusteaz
You will need:1 cup pancake mix
1/3 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar
2/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 tablespoons maple extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line cupcake pan with 6 liners
In a bowl combine the dry ingredients
Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and fold together
Fill cupcake liners 2/3 of the way full and bake for 20 minutes
To make mini pancake toppers:
While the cupcakes are baking prepare a serving of pancakes according to the instructions on the box.
Drop a small spoonful of pancake batter on a heated griddle and cook for about 2 minutes then flip. Remove to cool after fully cooking.
Once the cupcakes are fully cooled you can start to prepare the rest. I topped my cupcakes with cream cheese icing and a few mini pancakes, but I think a short stack of 3 or 4 would also be pretty adorable. I poured some maple syrup on top and warmed them in the microwave for 10 seconds and the end result was pretty heavenly.
I think this makes a pretty awesome breakfast option...but that's coming from someone who's obsessed with cupcakes and cute things. Enjoy!
Happy Friday! Hope your weekend is filled with delicious eats and dreamy moments.
