Pancake Poppers

Rated as 3.83 out of 5 Stars

"Pancakes didn't turn out so well on my electric stove top, so I invented these. They are light and airy and freeze well too. Try them with strawberry jam, dipped in syrup, or sprinkled with powdered sugar. Perfect for kid and adult brunches! This is a wonderful pancake recipe on its own too."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray 2 mini muffin tins with cooking spray.
  2. Mix milk and vinegar together in a bowl; let stand until milk curdles, about 5 minutes. Beat in oil and egg.
  3. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; stir into milk mixture until smooth. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tins with a tablespoon or a small batter scoop.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until batter is risen and still pale, about 8 minutes. Remove from muffin cups with a silicone scraper.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Buttermilk can be substituted for the milk and vinegar if desired.
  • These baked in 8 to 9 minutes in one of my ovens but took only 7 to 8 minutes in the other one, so just watch them.

As poppers, they didn't turn out well (They didn't rise). Maybe because I put a baking sheet under the mini muffin pans. I had so much batter left over, I made pancakes. They turned out excellen...

This was a total bust it doesn't taste good and has the consistency of scrambled eggs

I used butter milk and thought these were really delicious. When I make them again I think I’d add meat or fruit.

Made with some lemon to supplement lack of full 1/4 vinegar. And mostly whole grain flour. Only rose to mostly done at 8 min. The centers needed more time, more like muffins do. Pancakes were go...
