I spotted this recipe over the past week on one of the social media websites that I follow. I am a person who absolutely loves breakfast and sweets. So when I spotted this recipe I had the best of both worlds. You mean to tell me that I can have pancakes made up like a cupcake with frosting on top. I followed this recipe exactly except I switched up the frosting. The Dollhouse Bake Shoppe recipe called for maple buttercream frosting and I used a maple whip cream frosting recipe. The last thing I did differently was I used the jumbo sized cupcake liners so my yield was 6 cupcakes instead of 12.
