My family likes pancakes – at least most of them do! We actually have them more often for supper than for breakfast since everyone has different schedules in the mornings. It makes for a quick and easy meal.
The only thing I don’t like about making pancakes is that I am usually eating bites between flipping pancakes or else I end up eating when everyone else is finished.
Last year I came across the idea to bake pancakes in the oven. I don’t remember where I saw it (probably Pinterest) but I forgot about it until this past week.
I decided to try it out and loved it. I actually got to sit down and enjoy the meal with my family. No more flipping pancakes for this mom! 🙂
Oven baked pancakes are so easy! You simply make your favorite pancake recipe and bake the batter in a greased baking sheet with sides. I had written down on my note card that any pancake recipe with at least 2 cups of flour (or dry mix) would work.
You can make them plain or sprinkle some mini chocolate chips or fruit on the top before you bake them. Serve warm with fresh fruit or maple syrup.
For an easy breakfast idea you could mix up the dry ingredients the night before and pop these in the oven in the morning.
Below is the pancake recipe that I used.
- 1 1/2 cups milk **
- 1/4 cup white vinegar
- 2 cups flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 4 Tablespoons butter (melted)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
1. Combine the milk and vinegar in a bowl and let set for about 5 minutes.
2. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk the eggs and melted butter into the milk mixture. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the flour mixture. Whisk lightly until the large lumps are gone. May need to add a little more milk if it seems too thick.
3. Spray the baking sheet (approx. 12 X 15) with cooking spray. Pour the pancake mixture into the pan. Bake for 13 – 16 minutes until the middle seems done.
4. Cut into squares and serve with maple syrup or fresh fruit.
** Can also use buttermilk instead of the milk & vinegar.
