Maple Syrup Pancake Muffins Recipe

Maple Syrup Pancake Muffins Recipe

These muffins include another of my favorite ingredients too – browned butter! Once baked, you poke holes in the tops of the muffins and then dip them in a sweet, syrup maple glaze. The glaze seeps down into the top quarter or so of the muffin and gives it that soft texture your pancakes get when you pour syrup on them. I was blown away by just how much the flavor of these replicated pancakes!

Maple Syrup Pancake Muffins

slightly adapted from Joy the Baker



  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Maple Glaze

  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice


Preheat oven to 375 F and place a rack in the upper third. Line your muffin pan with paper liners.

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Set aside.

Add the butter to a small saucepan set over medium-low heat. The butter will melt then begin to bubble and foam. Eventually it will start to turn brown and smell nutty – be patient and watch carefully, it can go from brown to burned quickly. Once the butter is browned, remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool slightly while you prepare the rest of the batter.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, egg yolk, maple syrup and vanilla until well combined. Mix in the cooled brown butter until incorporated. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and gently stir just until combined.

Divide the batter evenly among the wells of the muffin pans, filling each about 2/3 to 3/4-full. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let the muffins cool for a few minutes before removing from the pan to the rack.

While the muffins bake, prepare the maple glaze: Combine the maple syrup and lemon juice in a small saucepan and set over medium-low heat. Cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture has reduced and is very thick and syrupy.

When the muffins are cool enough to handle, use a small fork or toothpick to make a few holes in the top of each one. One at a time, holding them by their base, invert the muffins and dip the tops of them in the maple glaze. Let the excess drip off then place back on the wire rack. Once you’ve dipped all of them once, start back with the first one and dip them all a second time.

These are really best on the first day they’re made, but if you want to serve them a day or two later you can microwave them for 10-15 seconds first to recreate that warm pancake texture.

Makes 10-12 muffins.
