I love how these pancake muffins came out. They are super fluffy and taste like pancakes, but they are baked in a muffin pan. These were so puffy and fun to eat!

I always have a hard time making pancakes when I have a lot of people over. Even with a big griddle, I can only make so many at a time, and I hate that some of them get cold. So this is the perfect solution! Plus no more need to flip, throw away the first pancake, or hover over the stove.

You can also do different flavors. I made plain ones, blueberry and cherry. You can even make them in mini round cake pans to look like Japanese hotcakes!


Here is a short video for this recipe. Please note I only made 1/2 the amount for the video.

Baked Buttermilk Pancake Muffins

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 16 pancake muffins
These fluffy buttermilk pancakes are baked in a muffin pan, allowing you to make a large amount at once.


  • cups  all-purpose flour
  • tbsp sugar
  • 1 ½  tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½  tsp  baking soda
  • 2 ½  cups  buttermilk
  • large eggs
  • 3 tbsp canola oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease two 12-cup muffin pans with cooking oil spray. Since this recipe only makes about 16, you don't need to grease all the molds.
  2. In a large bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Whisk until well combined. Add in buttermilk, eggs and oil. Whisk until only small lumps remain. Be careful not to over-mix the batter.
  3. Add 1/3 cup batter to each muffin mold. Bake for about 15 minutes or until muffins are fully cooked. Use a small spatula to loosen the edge of the muffins before removing them. Serve with syrup, fresh fruit, whipped cream, melted butter or other pancake toppings of your choice.

  1. Goodday. My name is Jerry and I just started developing the love for baking. And I’ve also just started a small bakery bussiness. Your recipes are very helpful especially for me because I do not have a background of baking. Keep it up and thank you

  2. How do you think these would freeze if you had leftovers

  3. Could you use almond milk in place of buttermilk?

  4. Can you use melted butter instead of canola oil? Thanks!
