Lazy Gourmet: Oven Pancakes by Rachelle

photo by Katy, recipe by Rachelle

Paul learned how to make these from his college roommate and now he makes them on-demand for our kids. Cut them in quarters and pour on the syrup for a simple, sweet weekend treat — or serve them whole on a pretty platter heaped with fruit, drizzled with creame fraiche, and sprinkled with brown sugar for a more elegant brunch.

Shopping List
(makes one pie-plate sized pancake)

2T butter
1/2c milk
1/2c flour
2 eggs

Heat oven to 450. Melt butter in pie pan (glass works best). Whisk together milk, flour, and eggs. Pour into pie plat and bake 5-8 minutes until the pancake puffs and the edges brown slightly. These will ‘fall’ when you pull them out of the oven, they’re supposed to, don’t worry. Top with berries, bananas, or just plain old maple syrup (the real stuff please). Have yum!

What yummy concoction did you put on your oven pancakes? Do tell in the comments or link us to your recipe!

I made this pancake and ate it with fresh, sliced peaches and maple syrup. It was so easy and yummy that I’m going to make it again this weekend! I like pancakes but they are kind of a production – this one was ready in a jiffy.

That looks lovely, reminds me of a rather large Yorkshire pudding which I love with beef and gravey but then I would. I’m on a diet!

we make something similar in a cast-iron skillet, which gives us a chance to saute some fruit (like apples with butter and brown sugar) first, then pour the batter over them and puff in the oven.

Or you can just throw on a handful of chocolate chips as it falls.

We use this recipe from Steamy Kitchen.
