Pancake Muffins

I saw some pancake muffins on Pinterest and, of course, forgot to pin it. But I figured it wouldn't be too hard to put together, so I attempted it this morning. My trial-and-error attempt worked out okay, but I'll definitely make some changes next time. 

I made my typical pancake mix and placed cupcake liners into  a muffin tin. I filled the bottom of each liner with mix and arranged various tasties on the thin layer of mix: sliced strawberries, bananas, and bananas with a dollop of peanut butter. I wanted to make a few with sausage and bacon, but I figured I'd give it a try first and then see what happened. I then poured more mix on top of the fillings until the mix was about 1/2" below the liner top. I popped them in the oven at 350 for about 14 minutes and then they were done.  They looked super tasty!

Before ...
On my plate. 

Here are my problems with this attempt ...

First - Next time, I won't use liners. I'll simply grease the muffin pans. While the liners made clean up easy, they DID NOT like to come off the pancake muffins clean. When I peeled the liners off, they made the pancake muffins a little ugly. And I like  my food to be pretty. :)

Second - I want to use a thicker pancake mix in the future. This mix was a little too runny, and I think a thicker mix would yield better results (visually, of course!). 

Third - My strawberries were a little sour. I was tempted to add a touch of honey to those muffins, but didn't. On retrospect, I think that might be really tasty. Or even brown sugar. 

All in all, they were pretty tasty. Especially when I added some of my NYS maple syrup on top. I think these would be great for a brunch or a breakfast gathering ... if I can get the liner-muffin pan thing figured out.
