My kiddos will agree that they LOVE pancakes. What they can't agree on is the TYPE of pancake Mommy is going to make. Logan prefers his pancakes with fruit added- blueberry pancakes, banana pancakes, and pumpkin pancakes top his list. Sophie wants her pancakes with chocolate chips. Instead of spending my morning flipping separate pancake orders for everyone, we work together and create one giant pancake which is baked in the oven in an American Made pan.
The Oven Pancake Recipe is FABULOUS because my kiddos can add their own toppings- fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, coconut, jimmies (this is a great way to use up those Christmas jimmies!)- to an area of the pancake that will be theirs.
We use the Pampered Chef White Large Round Stone With Handles when we make our oven pancake. I am obsessed with Pampered Chef stoneware and it's all made in the USA! The White Large Stone is 15″ and has a 1/2 inch edge. This recipe makes a HUGE pancake and can easily be halved to fit a smaller dish. I freeze whatever is leftover…or we have it for desert later with ice cream.
Oven Pancake Recipe
2 1/2 cups of flour, like Bob's Red Mill Unbleached White Flour
2 tablespoons baking powder, like ARGO Aluminum Free Baking Powder
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt, like Redmond Real Salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, like Simply Organic Cinnamon
2 cups of milk, more if needed (we use almond milk)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Oil to grease dish with
Toppings: fruit (sliced bananas, strawberries, blueberries), nuts, chocolate chips, jimmies
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 15″ round dish (make sure it has an edge of at least 1/2″ deep).
In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon). In a small bowl, beat eggs and milk. Add the egg and milk mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir until blended. Add melted butter, and stir until blended. Add more milk if needed to bring to a pourable consistency. Pour batter into prepared dish, spreading evenly. Add toppings of choice. Bake for about 15-20 minutes. Pancake will be done when top is lightly brown and a testing toothpick comes out clean. We serve our pancakes like pizza slice. Enjoy!
I Spy American Made
Can you spot the American made products we used to make our oven pancake? Anchor Hocking glass bowls are my favorite mixing bowls. The mixing cup is made in the USA by Tupperware. The ingredients pictured are all produced in the USA. And last, but not least, Sophie is sporting her favorite cotton PJS from Brian the Pekingese, and yes, those are one of the pairs she has had since winter 2013. I think they are magical and have grown along with her!
