Use This All-Purpose Breakfast Batter to Make Donuts, Muffins, Pancakes, and Waffles
You can't please everyone all the time. Except at breakfast, thanks to this versatile batter, which can be tweaked to make muffins, pancakes, or donuts—basically any morning treat a houseful of guests (or your own lucky family) can dream up. And if somebody tries to stump you by asking for waffles, whip out the iron, grease it, pour in the batter, and cook until crisp (four to five minutes), leaving them wondering, "Is there nothing she can't do?"
All-Purpose Breakfast Batter
Batter up! This easy-as-ever batter starts with a dry mix of all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk it all together then add in buttermilk, eggs, unsalted butter, and vanilla extract and stir to combine until just a few small lumps remain. Then marvel as it is transformed into these different and utterly delicious recipes.
There's nothing better than a moist, marvelous muffin bursting with plump, juicy blueberries any day of the week. Once you mix up the do-it-all batter, just fold in 1¼ cups blueberries and scoop into a lined muffin tin. Top each muffin with a couple tablespoons of sugar for a crunchy, shimmering finish before baking. The result tastes just like your favorite bakery muffin (except better because it's all you!).
Our ready-to-go batter is simple to whip up for hungry kids and house guests on weekdays and weekends alike. This batter easily transforms into fluffy, buttery pancakes when poured on a hot griddle. It's also totally customizable—leave some pancakes plain for those who love the classics, or fold in semisweet chocolate chips and bananas for anyone with a penchant for something sweet.
