HOLIDAY HACK: How to Make Christmas Morning Muffins with Just 2-Ingredients!
If you love spending holiday mornings with your family, instead of in the kitchen, do we have an idea for you!

Ready-to-go pancake mix can be easily turned into delicious morning muffins. Just stir up two simple ingredients (and a bit of water), bake and enjoy the morning relaxing in your fuzzy slippers. No standing around the stove, waiting to flip perfectly browned pancakes. Instead, you can bake up a whole batch of 2-ingredient pancake muffins in 2 minutes flat.

Once out of the oven, enjoy with whatever pancake toppings you prefer. Put a pat of butter on top, drizzle with syrup, or if you’re feeling fancy, beat fresh whipped cream with pure maple syrup for a sweet dollop. Finish it all off with sprinkles and you’ll have a holiday morning breakfast so deliciously easy, it feels like a gift!

Here’s how to make this yummy, simple breakfast idea.

Recipe Twists You’ll Love

Though we added bright red raspberries to our muffin mix, there are dozens of variations! Skip the red berries and twist it up with one of these add-ins, instead.

  • Chocolate chips
  • Fresh or frozen blueberries
  • Apple pie filling
  • Chopped pecans
  • Rainbow sprinkles

The Perfect Muffin Pan

One storebought pouch of pancake mix (usually about 5.5oz) is a perfect fit for our Good Cook 6-Cup Muffin Pan. If you’re using a standard-sized, 12-cup muffin tin, add a small amount of water in the bottom of each unused cup to keep the pan from browning or burning.
