Muffin Tin Pop Up Pancakes Recipe

Make the classic pop up pancakes (German pancakes) in a fun new way using muffin tins. Perfect little bite-size pancakes!


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • dash salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400* and grease your muffin tins
  2. I like to mix all the ingredients in my blender. I have tried to whisk it or even use my small electric mixer, but a blender seems to do the best job getting it smooth.
  3. Pour the mix into your greased muffin tins. Or your baking pan, as my mom likes to bake these in a jelly roll pan.
  4. Bake them for 15 minutes in a 400* oven, or until puffy and golden on top. Use a knife to pop or pry them out, hopefully they were greased well enough and should pop right out. They puffiness will die down as they cool, and they become more like a cup.
  5. Now they are ready for toppings.

Recipe Notes

I love syrup, powdered sugar, and fruit. You could even use fresh Strawberry Jam. We usually load it all on and dive in.
