Oven Pancakes

I found this recipe in a random search for pancakes recipes.  I came across the “Starved Writer” Blog and found this little gem.  Because a dozen pancake recipes just isn’t enough…

And they sound so easy.  Too easy, in fact.

I had to try them for a lazy weekend breakfast.  I decided to saute some banana and apple slices to serve with the pancakes.

 Though can you call it a pancake if it is oven baked?

I was a bit worried as I made them that they wouldn’t rise.  I was tempted to adapt, but figured that I would make them as suggested the first time, and see how they turned out.


Great looking puffy oven pancakes.

They rose!

In some ways I would compare these to a yorkshire pudding, but not quite…

They were good and I am going to use this recipe again, on mornings when we want pancakes but I don’t want to stand over the stove cooking them.

Like this morning, when I was more interested in watching Berbatov score against Fulham!! 🙂
