Today is National Pancake Day, and what better way to justify eating cupcakes for breakfast than with a pancake breakfast cupcake! A fluffy buttermilk pancake cupcake topped with a maple buttercream frosting and a garnished with piece of crispy bacon and maple syrup. Breakfast never tasted so good. Perfect for sleepovers, Father's Day breakfast, special occasions or just because!
Pancake Breakfast Cupcakes
Yield: 1 dozen "cupcakes"
Buttermilk Pancake Cupcakes:
- 1 cup Original Bisquick® pancake mix*
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup buttermilk, room temperature**
- 1 egg, room temperature
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup mix-in; chocolate chips, blueberries, nuts, chopped bacon, etc. (optional)
*May substitute 1 cup flour, mixed with 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon salt
**May substitute 1/2 cup milk (1%, 2% or whole) mixed with 1 1/2 teaspoons vinegar or lemon juice, let sit a few minutes until it clumps up and thickens.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cupcake/muffin pan with 12 baking cups.
Combine pancake mix, sugar and baking powder in a small bowl. Lightly whisk buttermilk, egg, butter and vanilla in measuring cup. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry mix and gently whisk until just incorporated (it's ok if a few lumps remain). If desired, fold your favorite pancake mix-in into the batter. Distribute batter between the 12 baking cups. Bake 13-16 minutes, or until pancake cupcakes are puffy and a toothpick comes out cean.
While the cupcakes bake, prepare the frosting. With an electric mixer, beat butter until smooth on medium speed. Slowly add powdered sugar until fully incorporated and creamy. Add maple, salt and cream. Beat on medium speed about 3 minutes until light and fluffy, adding more powdered sugar or milk until desired consistency is reached.
