We probably have. But let’s talk about it again, want to?
Breakfast is awesome because you get to eat dessert as a meal and it’s not frowned upon. You can eat fried dough dipped in sugar and put whipped cream on things and no one bats an eye. What’s not to love about that, that’s what I’d like to know.
Unfortunately, I often fail in the breakfast department, because ain’t nobody got time for that. It’s early and the toddler is climby and my To Do list is infinity long, and also I’m too hungry to wait on food that needs to be cooked.
That’s why these muffins are one of the best things that ever happened!
These muffins are simpler than pancakes, and taste way better!!
They’re portable too, so they’re great if you’re an eat on the go kind of gal. Eating on the go actually stresses me out — I spill food on myself even when I’m just sitting perfectly still in a chair. But if you’re an athletic type who can manage it, good for you!
Also, my son never wakes up hungry (obviously, he did not inherit my wake up immediately starving gene), so these are also still good for him to grab after he’s been up for a little while.
You can totally change them up with any pie filling — blueberry, apple, or even peach. Look at you, getting all creative! I even wonder what would happen if you plopped some Nutella in there instead of fruit?
I mean…it couldn’t be bad, could it? Let’s try it one of these days and get back to each other.
Also, the word “plop”? It definitely needs to go die in a fiery explosion. I don’t even know why I used that word, you guys. I’m so sorry.
- 2 1/4 cups pancake mix
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 21 oz can cherry pie filling
- Preheat oven to 400. Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners and set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine pancake mix and brown sugar. Edd eggs, milk and vanilla and stir until combined. Batter might be a bit lumpy -- this is fine.
- Fill prepared muffin tins about 1/2 full. Add a spoonful of cherry pie filling to the center of each. Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until golden brown (a toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean).
- Sprinkle with powdered sugar, top with additional pie filling, or top with whipped topping and serve.
