    The pancake muffin sounds good, I tried clicking on the other muffin recipes but nothing opened.

  4. Barbara says:

    This recipe sounds like something my granddaughter would enjoy. However, your link to pancake mix comes up as taco salad! Could I substitute any homemade pancake recipe and just bake in mini muffin tins? Hope to try this next I go visit them.

    Just found your site and have several recipes added to my menu plan. Also happy to see the link to your posts regarding saving money on groceries. Going to delve into those posts next. Thank you.

  5. Carrie says:

    I haven’t tried that. If you try it, come back and let me know how it turns out.

  6. n Donahue says:

    Could I add an egg to each muffin before it goes into the oven?
