Sunday Citar: A Recipe

“There is no use trying, said Alice; one can't believe impossible things. I dare say you haven't had much practice, said the Queen. When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
-Lewis Carroll

Breakfast is by far my most favorite meal. I love the weekends when we can make a leisurely breakfast and enjoy some of our favorite treats. One that all 3 gilrs (and the neighborhood children) enjoy are these pancake muffins. When you take them out of the oven , the deflate, leaving a nice well for syrup, strawberries, blueberries... anything that strikes your fancy.

Here is the recipe:
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
6 eggs
1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease your muffin tins. Mix all ingredients in a blender (or my handy-dandy Magic Bullet) until smooth. Pour your mixture into muffin tins. I filled about half way as they really expand when baking. Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown on the tops.

Once you remove them from the oven, let the kids watch them deflate (this happens instantaniously) and they will be enthralled. You can then serve them up with any fixin's your family enjoys. My speciality is strawberries and syrup (real maple, of course!)

  1. I love breakfast, and that looks scrumptious! Great photos.

  2. I'm a breakfast lover myself, one of my favorite meals... and this looks like fun!!!! I'll have to try it :)

    That quote is hilarious by the way, the last sentence was my favorite!

  3. You know my love of pancakes! I will have to deviate from my recipe and try these out!

  4. We used to make these when I was a kid, except we called them something different- Dutch puppies maybe? Never made them in individual cupcake pans though, we always just did it in one big one.
