BREAKFAST FOR DESSERT

My husband and I enjoyed these Baked Pancakes for dessert the first time I made them! They were so delicious especially as they were warm and right out of the oven. It’s best when served with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream on top.

PANCAKE ADD-IN INGREDIENTS:

You can either fold in these add-in ingredients or sprinkle them to the top. 

Chocolate chips: Milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, white chocolate and mini chocolate chips. A combination of chocolate chips is always delicious too. 

Nutella: add spoonfuls of Nutella to the pancakes and then swirl them with toothpicks.  

Peanut Butter: add peanut butter to the batter or spread on top of pancakes. You can also use peanut butter chips. 

Jam: spread on top of your pancakes instead of maple syrup for a fruity sweetener. 

Diced apples and cinnamon: makes for a delicious spiced combo!

Fresh fruit: diced strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and bananas are all great add-ins.  

Chopped nuts: gives the pancakes a crunch. Pecans, walnuts and almonds are some of my favorites to add on pancakes. 

Brown sugar and cinnamon: this will give the pancakes a cinnamon roll flavor. 

Honey: extra sweetness or can be used in place of maple syrup.

Storing leftover pancakes is easy. Enjoy these pancakes for the week or freeze them for later.

Refrigerate: Cover the baking sheet with plastic wrap or transfer pancakes to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. They will last up to 3-4 days. When ready to eat again, simply microwave or warm in the oven for a few minutes. 

Freeze: Before storing, make sure the pancakes are completely cooled. Wrap the pancake in individual squares with plastic wrap and place in large heavy duty ziplock bag. Store for up to 2 months. Thaw completely and then warm in the microwave or oven.

    What a great idea! I’m always at a loss for what to feed the family when they all come to stay. This would feed 13 people in a flash and everyone loves pancakes!

    What a delightful and fun idea for weekend breakfasts! I never thought about baking pancake batter but cannot wait to give this a try!

  6. Making these today for Easter and wondering if the maple syrup is considered a wet ingredient or if it’s listed only to serve with it.
