Pancakes + muffins = Puffins!

Ok, just let me say this up front: I am a pancake snob. I have been spoiled my entire life by my father who makes the most amazing pancakes from scratch served with real maple syrup from Quebec (oh yeah, the good stuff). So, needless to say, I am very difficult to please when it comes to pancakes.

Now that that's out of the way, let me say that I have found THE solution for a quick grab and go breakfast: puffins! Bakerella posted these babies on her blog last week and I decided to give them a try this morning since I didn't have class until noon.

I didn't have any chocolate chips (although I'm not really a fan of chocolate chip pancakes and probably would have omitted these even if I had any on hand) and I don't have a mini muffin pan so they are regular sized and plain. But that did not hinder their goodness! The fluffiness and taste of buttermilk pancakes in the shape of a muffin! Genius.

Recipe Notes: Some blueberries and lemon zest would probably be a nice addition if you want to get fancy. I had to add a couple extra splashes of buttermilk when I was mixing it up because the batter was a bit on the dry side. Baked 15 - 20 minutes to compensate for larger size of muffins. Yield 6 regular size muffins.
