Pop Up Muffins

This was such a fun and easy breakfast to make for my family. I will go back to this one again and again because of the ease and which it comes together. These Pop Up Muffins, as we called them, also known as German Pancakes are so great for a busy morning when you don’t have time for something more labor intensive, or maybe don’t have a lot of groceries on hand. I know that 95% off the time I will always have the ingredients to make this one. And honestly, I get tired of cereal every morning. Thanks, Marie, for sharing this one. I love the idea of German Pancakes in muffin tins. They are super cute that way!
