I noticed my homemade pancake mix in my cabinet the other day, I haven't bought Hungry Jack mix in years, and wondered if there was a recipe for a homemade mix for muffins out there. Of course I went to the computer and googled it, what else would I do?
I found one on this site and decided to make a slight adjustment to the recipe (I used all white flour) and I ended up halving it so I could use one of my canisters instead of baggies. I loved the blog I found the recipe on since it also gave ideas for altering it with variations of spices and fruit. This is just what I wanted and needed since I get bored making the same kind of muffins and my husband and son have different favorites.
6c all purpose flour
1 1/4c sugar
2T baking powder
1 1/2t salt
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl with a whisk until they are all incorporated. Pour into a canister or gallon size baggies making sure to tape the directions on the front.
This way I would have no reason to hunt down a recipe card. I made the chocolate with mini chocolate chip variation the other night and Grant LOVED them. I think my husband would prefer a more chocolatey flavor, but I have to be honest, I think he's wanting a chocolate cupcake instead of a muffin haha. I tried them and I'm not even a big fan of chocolate muffins and I thought they were delicious. Actually I'm wanting one right now, but I'm trying to refrain. Darn these cravings!
I did add about 1tsp vanilla to the liquid ingredients even though the recipe didn't call for it.
Don't you wish you had some on your counter right now?
I'm so excited to have this mix in my cabinet. I've gotten so much use out of my pancake mix, I swear by having it ready to go in my pantry, and I know this muffin mix will make me hesitate a lot less when it's time to whip up a batch. The time it saved just making these chocolate ones was fabulous, and it was so easy for Grant to assist me, he had a ball.
