Pancake Muffins with Three Varieties

There were so many of you that were interested in the results of my experiments that I got right to it and made these for Monday’s breakfast. I made a control batch and then I made some varieties. I am so pleased with the results.

Note: Each of the following recipes make 6 muffins
Pancake Muffins made with a "just add water" pancake mix.  Basic recipe includes variations for adding meat, fruit and even cheese and chiles.

My personal favorite was the Chile Cheese pancake muffin.  Served hot with butter and a splash of syrup, they were out of this world.  The chiles gave a fun bit of heat.  My kids loved the blueberry variety.  I can always count on them to go for the sweetest choice.
