Lemon Raspberry Mini Pancake Muffins and an OXO Tools Giveaway

Lemon Raspberry Mini Pancake Muffins | Very Culinary

by Amy Flanigan on May 6, 2013 · 30 comments

While I sit here in 90 degrees and a tank top, and the Midwest and East Coast are still gathering up kindle for a fire, I thought I would post some pancake muffins. Because breakfast food fits everyone’s needs, regardless of the weather.

Do you prefer pancakes or waffles? I love them both, but I think pancakes tip the scales just slightly. And you all know how much I love “mini” food. These are perfect on both counts.

They’re fluffy, a little sweet, a little tart, and finger food for my kids to eat on the way to school. When we’re running late. Not that that ever happens *cough*

Lemon Raspberry Mini Pancake Muffins
Makes 24
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

• 1 cup flour
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 2 tablespoons sugar
• 2/3 cups buttermilk
• 1 egg
• 2 tablespoons melted butter
• juice and zest from one large lemon
• 6 ounce container fresh raspberries
• powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously coat a 24 cup mini muffin pan with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. In a medium bowl whisk buttermilk, egg, and melted butter until just combined. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in the lemon juice and zest.

Fill each muffin well with batter 3/4 full. Place a raspberry on top of each muffin and gently press down.

Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool in pan for a few minutes and then gently run a dull knife around edges to release and remove.

Serve immediately with a sprinkling of powdered sugar and warmed butter.

I made these as part o f Mother’s Day brunch, and they were a huge hit! I added maple syrup to the mix to give them a little bit of a sweetness, but everyone loved them. I was glad to have a few leftovers as snacks for the week. :)

I have to say I’m more in the waffle category. Which is surprising to me because I don’t usually like things crispy, unless we’re talking chips or fries. But these muffins look great, and I’m always searching for tasty new recipes to bring to church on Sundays. I think parents are getting tired of all the sweets I insist on providing and my hubby says mini muffins are a good choice because people can grab-and-go. :)

Here’s the link to my pin.
And of COURSE I follow you on Pinterest, too. Oxo gadgets are my absolute favorite!

I have a lot of these tools so I’d feel bad entering but I have to chime in for Team Pancake! These muffins look outstanding.

These little guys are so stinkin’ CUTE! If you pinned me down and forced me to choose pancakes or waffles, I might yell “Pancakes!” in a moment of panic, but I sure am glad I don’t have to choose :-)
PS. Anyone who is reading this comment: I have that pancake flipper and it rocks my socks. Great giveaway!


Rachel @ Baked by Rachel May 6, 2013 at 5:18 pm

I’m totally a waffle girl but my family is more pancake than waffle so I usually get the short end there unless I pull out the waffle maker… then everyone is game. Weird right? But I totally love the flavor pairings here!

PS I follow you both on FB! :)

I made waffles last week and got ONE, yes ONE good one. As in, one that didn’t crumble into a million pieces when I opened the waffle iron. So yeah. Pancakes are now officially my favorite. And i think I’d love them even more in muffin form…no flipping required after all!

It’s like you grabbed me by the front of my shirt and pulled me in to say “LOOK AT THESE”. OMG! Pancake muffins…SERIOUSLY?! Died and gone to heaven. Oh, and I don’t know if I’m allowed to win, but I really want a batter dispenser. :oD


Terri H May 6, 2013 at 7:41 am

Did anyone really read the recipe? There is mention of maple syrup down in the instructions, but no mention up in the ingredient list. How much syrup does it take?


Amy May 6, 2013 at 7:50 am

Whoops, my bad Terri! There is no maple syrup. I omitted that. Thanks for the heads-up!
