My first adventure to Kerbey Lane Cafe was with Linda, the Editorial Director of Enlightenment Magazine. Linda is a great friend and a fellow fan of interior design and beautiful lighting. She lives in New Jersey and was recently traveling thru Central Texas so we hoped our first visit to Kerbey Lane Cafe wouldn’t disappoint. And it didn’t!
We loved Kerbey Lane’s California Omelette, Rocky Road Pancakes and our sensational server so much (thank you, Masani) that we all left with boxes of the cafe’s pancake mixes so we could enjoy a little Kerbey Lane in our own kitchens. Kerbey Lane offers 7 pancake options to choose from and the mixes can create breads, cookies, waffles, muffins in addition to awesome pancakes. For folks living outside the Austin area you can order their mixes online and taste the goodness from your own kitchen creations, too!
This Home Style Austin muffin recipe brings the best of fall with the time-honored “flavorites” – pumpkin, orange juice, cranberries and good ole Texas pecans. Go on . . . take your tastebuds into outer space!
1 Cup | Butter, Melted
1 | Cage Free Egg
1 Cup | Orange Juice
1 Cup | Granulated Sugar
16 Ounce Box | Kerbey Lane Cafe Pumpkin Pancake Mix
2 Handfuls | Dried Cranberries
Handful | Texas Pecans, Chopped (optional)
What To Do:
0. Preheat oven to 325°F.
1. In a medium bowl blend together the butter, egg, orange juice and sugar. I love my KitchenAid!
2. Add the pancake mix and blend well.
3. Fold-in the cranberries and pecans (if using) with a spatula or spoon.
4. Using a cookie scoop, spoon batter into silicon baking cups or muffin tin lined with baking cups. If you don’t have a cookie scoop you’re missing out! Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle of one of the cupcakes comes out clean.
Yields: 18 (or so) muffins
I hope you enjoy these muffins as much as I do! I love the Kerbey Lane mixes so much I now include a box or two in my new homeowner gift baskets which have become a gift-giving (and receiving) favorite.
