Pancakes Fast and Easy with this Pancake Oven Bake!
Between the Easy Molasses Cookie, Family Size Meatloaf, and now this Pancake Bake in Oven, it’s starting to feel like a Homemade with Love Amish Cookbook series over here at Through the Kitchen!
Though not an official series, they say sharing is caring! So, as I try new winning recipes, it’s only right that I share them with you.
I have spotted a few recipes in this Amish Cookbook that I have no intention of trying (ingredients in one such recipe include grated American cheese and canned ham), but I would say that most are likely worth a shot.
Benefit of pancake bake in oven
I have long thought of a way to make a batch of pancakes in the oven. Let’s be honest, with a growing family, a single batch of pancake batter just doesn’t make enough to go around. Leftovers, forget it. I typically quadruple (yes that’s 4 times) the pancake recipes I use so that my family can eat one breakfast and have some leftovers for the week.
While I do like having leftover pancakes for a quick breakfast during the week, making a quadruple batch can really take a long time…even with 2 skillets going. So, if we have a busy day ahead of us but we are all craving pancakes, I can quickly whip up a batch of pancake bake in oven and use my skillets to cook up some meat and eggs.
Another bonus of going the route of a pancake oven bake is to control the amount of syrup used. The second time I made this recipe, I used 25% less syrup and everyone like it even more! That means, my family only uses ¾ cup of syrup for the entire meal…who knows how much we use when we are dousing stacks of pancakes instead! Sugar spike anyone??

how to make pancake bake in oven
Take out your 9×13 baking dish. Pour ¾ C pure maple syrup into the bottom. Then drop dots of butter on the syrup to equal ½ C.
In a mixing bowl, beat 1 egg, 1 ½ C scant milk and 3 Tbsp melted butter.
To the egg mixture, add ¾ tsp salt, 3 Tbsp sugar, 1 ½ C flour, and 1 ½ Tbsp baking powder. Beat well.
Pour the batter on top of syrup and butter.
Place baking dish in 350° oven for 30 minutes
Once it’s done, let it rest for just a few minutes before cutting into squares and serving with your favorite breakfast pairings. Eggs and bacon anyone?
serving your pancake oven bake
Serving the pancake bake in oven is simple. Cut a square out of the baking dish and slide it onto a plate. I like to have a bit more protein with my breakfast so I will also often have some eggs and either bacon or sausage to serve along side the pancake oven bake.
Thankfully, my hens have been laying all winter so there has been no shortage of eggs available here!
let me know!
Does this Pancake Bake in Oven sound like something your family would enjoy? I just had a thought, what about adding some fresh bananas or strawberries on top! Or maybe some baked apples with generous amounts of cinnamon would be nice.
Sounds like I’m going to have to whip up this recipe a few more times!
