Lately, I have been making pouch muffins for the family. My son thinks it is a great treat to have them with dinner or as a special weekend breakfast. I think that making them from a packet is a nice quick way to make the meal special and since they only make 6 muffins, I don't have to worry about many leftovers, if any. They come in a number of varieties from mixed berries to chocolate chip to banana nut to pound cake. It also brings back memories of my childhood, when my mom would make the muffins for her family.
When I make the pouch muffins (generally it makes 6 muffins). I mix the milk and the packet right in the measuring cup I used for measuring the milk. Not only does it save me an added bowl to wash, but with the pour spout on the measuring cup, it provides an easy pour solution so that I can fill my muffin cups without making a mess.
This works for me! For more tips and tricks, check out Works For Me Wednesday at We Are THAT Family.
A bonus tip - pouch muffins make awesome pancakes! Many of the pouches have recipes on them.
Here is the recipe that I use:
Muffin Pouch Pancakes
7oz muffin mix pouch (makes 6 muffins)
3/4c milk (the muffins call for just 1/2 c milk)
Mix together and cook on a hot griddle.
