Baked Pancakes

April 22, 2008

Here’s a fun variation to the normal pancake flipping–bake them! It’s great if you want to cut down on preparation time or want to serve them all fresh out of the oven. It makes a great Sunday morning breakfast. (Or just any time…like this morning! πŸ™‚ )

Just mix up batter for 8-10 pancakes (using a mix or homemade batter), pour into a casserole dish (pictured with a 2 quart dish), and bake at 425 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.

And, oila, you have “pancake casserole!”

The time and temperature may vary a bit, but this is what I experimented with, and what worked for me. We love berries in our pancakes, and we like them thick with grains–so that’s what I did here, too.

    Get outta town! This looks awesome, and I’m definitely going to give it a try!

    I do this too. I do it in a jellyroll type pan though so they are not as thick. It works great to bake pancakes when you are in a hurry. Thanks for sharing.

    Huh! Great idea! Never have heard of doing this before…but I like it!

    Hi – I’m a lurker and I’m wondering if you would share your recipe . It looks yummy! My son just walked by and said, “That looks good!”
    Thank you.

    I have never thought of that. First it’s quick breads in muffin pans and now this.

    This is so smart, we will try this! Flipping pancakes for a crowd takes a long time and I serve pancakes for dinner a couple times a month!

  • Alicia April 22, 2008 at 10:29 am

    This will be so perfect – much easier on the mommy – thanks for sharing.

    I’ve been doing this for a while in my bar pan. (It’s a jelly roll pan size.) The kids love to cut out whatever shape they want with a cookie cutter once they are baked, and then mommy and daddy eat the “scraps.” I do 375 for 17-20 min. but that’s for stoneware. So much faster than pouring and flipping (and burning when you get impatient at the end and turn the heat up.) This also works for “grilled” cheese on stoneware.

    I will have to try this. We love pancakes, but it takes a lot of time at the griddle. Thanks.

  • Michelle April 22, 2008 at 11:23 am

    Killer! I am so totally doing this the next time I make pancakes.

  • Sonshine April 22, 2008 at 12:39 pm

    We just had pancakes this morning! This way definitely would have been faster!! πŸ™‚

    Thanks for sharing!

  • Mary Ann April 22, 2008 at 1:46 pm

    Interesting! I’ll have to try this. Thanks for sharing!

  • Kelly April 22, 2008 at 5:05 pm

    How delicious! I do baked french toast and this is a great recipe to add to our breakfast menu! I’m so glad that I found ya! (through Mrs. Wilt’s blog)

    Have a beautiful, peaceful evening! :o)

    So, if a pancake is essentially cake, but cooked in a pan, then isn’t baked pancake essentially just cake?

  • senseofwords April 22, 2008 at 7:45 pm

    Makes me want to make pancakes for breakfast tomorrow morning! Would the panckakes look any differently if you used buckwheat pancakes?

  • Donna April 22, 2008 at 9:52 pm

    Hey…………with 8 people in the house, a couple of pans of these sounds far better than flipping!
    Great idea!

  • Mimi April 22, 2008 at 10:00 pm

    I love it! I’m all for anything baked in the oven, just ask my casserole eating family. This will be in my oven this week. thanks for sharing!

  • Rishat Muhametshin April 23, 2008 at 12:28 am

    I have thought for all the time that pancake is a tiny flat piece of roasted greasy dough, called in my native language as β€œbleen”. I was wrong.

  • Jai April 23, 2008 at 10:25 am

    I am sooooo doing this for breakfast!!!!!!!! THANK YOU for the tip. I just hate it when the family has to “heat up” their pancakes when I cook pancakes the regular way.


  • Ellen April 23, 2008 at 12:46 pm

    Oh neat. I’m going to try this tonight. I don’t have any blueberries, so I think that I’ll add in some chocolate chips.

  • Veggiemomof2 April 23, 2008 at 2:59 pm

    One reason we don’t make pancakes is the cook eats last & alone, now that won’t happen!

  • Kristin April 24, 2008 at 6:05 am

    I had never heard of this before — What a cool tip!! Veggiemomof2 – So right… the cook eats last and alone LOL

    Have a Great Day!

  • Kristin April 24, 2008 at 3:35 pm

    What a great idea!! I’ve never heard of baking pancakes. This will be my way of making pancakes from now on!

    Thanks for the great tip.

  • Momto2Boys May 28, 2008 at 7:20 pm

    Definitely going to give it a try! Just love it!

  • lynn June 29, 2009 at 8:19 pm
