Do I Have To Add Berries Or Other Items to My Pancakes?

No, you don’t have to. It’s just a simple “pro tip” that we like to use to make the pancakes feel more homemade.

Can I Use Other Flavors?

Sure! Try the berry muffins or even the lemon poppy seed. They all make terrific pancakes!

Tips and Tricks for Muffin Pancakes

  • It takes quite a while to heat up your pancake pan, and it’s best to do so using very low heat so as not to overheat the pan.
  • When adjusting the heat to the pan, do so in small increments. A tiny adjustment in the heat can seriously change the cooking time for your pancake.
  • Turn pancakes when they start to have bubbles coming up through the surface and bubbles at the edges.
  • For the best results, you want a thicker pancake batter.
  • To avoid over greasing your surface, use a silicon brush to paint butter or oil over the cooking surface.

PRO TIP: For a flavor kick, add some fresh berries, poppy seeds, blueberries, pecans or chocolate to your pancake batter (just coordinate flavors with the packet flavor).
