Last weekend Miss Yunks went to visit her cousins in Maine and wanted to bring a basket full of baked goods.
I remembered reading about Bakerella’s Maple Pancake Muffins and went to search for the recipe. That was easy. But, will pancake muffins be enough? Not really. So I searched my favorite food blogs for something else and found My Baking Addiction’s Maple Oatmeal Scones. Okay, so they’re originally from Ina from The Food Network. Both recipes have maple syrup so I thought they were perfect to bake together.
I made the scones first. The dough was so sticky (duh, it has maple syrup in it) so instead of rolling it out flat and cutting the scones, I used my hands and rolled little balls like making cookies. But the balls expanded so much I ended up with giant scones. No one complained they were too big. The maple icing was the perfect topping; next time I’ll use more.
Next I made the pancake muffins, which is really pancake batter baked in a muffin tin. I used a regular sized tin so I got 12 cupcakes instead of Bakerella’s 24 mini muffins. Only 11 made it to my cousin’s house, I had to do a taste test! If you like pancakes, you’ll love the pancake muffins. I made some with chocolate chips and some without. These would be great for a brunch.
