I'm not so great at making pancakes. Pouring even amounts, then browning perfectly before flipping, is somehow always harder than it sounds. Plus, if serving a crowd- only a few are ready at a time so either people are eating in shifts or you need to keep the cooked pancakes warm. The recipe below solves all of those issues by making one large 'pancake' and cooking it in the oven.
Thanks to Ms. Pat for this recipe, she made it for us all the time as kids and it's so great, that I continue to make today.
The ingredients are simple, you most likely already have them on hand, and can be easily multiplied and cooked in a larger pan to serve more people.
I usually use my hand mixer with the whisk attachment to blend all of the ingredients. Don't worry if the butter is not evenly mixed, you just want it in small pieces.
As soon as it comes out of the oven, it is puffy and then will start to deflate. Fun for kids (of any age) to watch. It tastes more similar to a crepe than a traditional pancake and really works well with an array of toppings.
Hope you try it out & enjoy as much as we do!
