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.

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.
