This is an easy pancake recipe that uses muffin mix as its main ingredient. These pancakes can be served with syrup or a smidge of butter. My kids love them! Use different flavors of muffin mix to make different flavors of pancakes.

This is Heather, the creator of this recipe. As a suggestion for others when using this recipe, I have substituted the corn muffin with apple cinnamon muffin mix, berrry muffin mix, and bannana nut muffin mix. That is actually my daughter's preferred way of eatting them. Any style muffin mix will do. I hope you all enjoy it. Read More

I routinely add more liquid to pancake recipes as I prefer a thin pancake so that was the only reason I did not follow the recipe as given. However I could not turn these pancakes after cooking the first side. Each one fell apart. We ate them anyway and I liked the taste but do not understand how I can adapt this recipe so the pancake doesn't fall apart when turning. Read More

I made this recipe this morning for my boys. I did a double take when the recipe called for two TABLESPOONS of baking powder so I changed it to two TEASPOONS. Other than that this was a hit with my family. The batter wasn't too thick it was perfect. I slathered the cakes with butter and honey and it was wonderful. Will definitely make again. And again. Cheap to make and great change from the typical pancake recipe. Read More

Was good but like others have said be careful because some of the Corn mix boxes are 8.5 oz so you need to at least increase the liquid content of the recipe in order to avoid dry pancakes. Read More

These are the best pancakes something about the cornmeal texture and the fluffy pancake make these the best my family keeps asking me to make them again and again. I wouldn't change a thing! Read More

Made for breakfast this early morn (I actually went to the store last week and bought corn muffin mix so I could try this recipe). My 9 year old said this recipe was a "4 1/2" (: which is high praise from him. I used the Jiffy corn muffin mix which was 8.5 oz not 7 so I reduced the flour a bit. I loved the submitter's suggestion of using other mixes...lends to alot of variety with this recipe! Can't wait to try other variations! Thanks for the post! Read More

Delish! I used just 2 tsp of b. power instead of the tbsps. I also used the Jiffy mix which was more than 7 oz but I evened it out by adding an extra 1/4 cup or so of milk. The pancakes were perfect and easy to make. I topped em off with some boysenberry jam and my boyfriend fell in love. Thank you!! Read More

The batter as the recipe is written is too thick. I had to thin it out with about an extra quarter cup of milk. Other than that, great and easy to make as long as you have the cornbread mix on hand. Edited on 7/23/08 - Tried the recipe with the blueberry muffin mix and it was awesomely light and fluffy. Didn't need to thin out the batter this time around. Read More

This pancake recipe was very good. I would have liked it to taste more corn-cakey but otherwise a delicious alternative. I definitely want to try it with other muffin mixes. Read More
