The Garden's Watered...

Hosted by "Designs by Gollum"

So it's time for brunch! At least for me! The kids had their choices with melon, but I wanted a muffin with pancake's light feel, so... I made some!
Add some ice cold fruit cocktail and a delectable slice of cantaloupe and I'm ready for the day!
This is what happens when the photographer/aspiring food stylist does a session hungry. LOL
That purple stain is my proof of the blackberry in the muffin. LOL

A big thank you to our host and to all you dear friends!

Blackberry Pancake Muffins

4 cups Krusteaz Wheat & Honey Pancake Mix (Target)
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup frozen blackberries (or any berries you choose)
2 cups milk

Preheat oven to 350 deg
Line two muffin tins (12 ct each)

Mix ingredients into a somewhat loose batter
Gently mix in the blackberries
Pour into muffin cups about 3/4 full
Bake for 13-15 minutes

NOTE: As it is mainly a pancake, it is not sweet. Please butter the tops, pour syrup or powdered sugar. Or cut into it then sweeten to cut into the tartness of the blackberry if you wish.

It is a healthy muffin so don't saturate with too much sugar. If you like it sweet, add extra honey or add a little more sugar into the batter.

TABLESCAPING IDEA: ("Brain" is satisfied) Find other tables in your home to do a tablescape on. If none other than you main table, use different placemats to make things interesting.

  13. Chandy,
    I would never have thought of making muffins out of pancake mix. What a clever and interesting idea! I usually have pancake mix on hand so will try this one. I laughed when I saw the empty muffin cup that was a good one.

Niceties first

HELLO AND WELCOME to this blog dedicated to my obsession of tablescapes, and ONLY TABLESCAPES!
That means that whatever I post will be redirected to tablescapes or you will see tablescapes or the dishes and glassware that I used AND wish to use.
I hope you like you what you see; but you can't do that unless you take the tour- the TABLESCAPE TOUR that's on the side bar! I'd also love to take you on my adventures on finding great dinnerwares to display and use while leaving some serious change in your pocket, so stay a while and see all of my great deals!
Wanna know the reason behind the madness, too? Then make sure to read, Why this blog for my philosophy.
