Crispy Pancake Muffins: A Trick To Jazz Up Boring Muffins

A few extra touches and your flopped muffins can go from not-so-drooly to totally delectable. Watch as The Flexible Chef's Nealy Fischer show you how.

Have you ever baked a batch of muffins that didn’t turn out the way you expected? Maybe they lacked flavor, were too crumbly, or tasted a bit blah. Whatever the situation, I have some good news for you—your muffins (and almost all of your kitchen flops) can be salvaged.

Turn Your Flops Into Successes

Sometimes food flops can turn into your biggest successes. Some of my go-to dishes these days have come from experimenting with things that didn’t go my way.

Turn dry muffins into pancake muffins; overbaked bread into breadcrumbs; flopped cake into cake pops. Get creative and have some fun!
