Easy Oven Baked Pancakes, a small batch recipe

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

For the average home, quick to prepare meals have always been on the menu. Because quick to prepare foods have always been needed to feed our families. Since forever life has been busy! And the need to feed the ones you love has been just as constant. I appreciate that I have a machine to drop my dirty clothes into, add some soap ( made by someone else ) and push a button. Poof, laundry is now being washed and rinsed. Drying my laundry is just as easy.......

Seriously so much easier than boiling water, adding your own homemade soap, then dipping your dirty laundry, piece by piece to be scrubbed on a washboard. But wait there is more, now we can talk about the rinse cycle!  After that, it will be time to hang the laundry for drying.

Imagine doing laundry for a large family, this old fashioned way.....

I ask you, who had time to make anything but a quick meal or one that had already been placed into the oven to cook on its own (baked beans, again...)? Century to century, how we complete tasks and chores have been the only change. Today's families and households are still very busy, even if in different ways. It is also where we all come together in our need to have quick to prepare meals.

For us, I want recipes that use our favorite ingredients. I don't want quick to equate to different. I want quick to mean easier to produce, without any loss of integrity. I still want high quality, whole-food meals.

Sometimes that is easy.

Whole grain, no added sugar, homemade pancakes. Feed your family right!
Whole grain oven-baked pancakes, everyone eats together!
Which brings us to Easy Oven Baked Pancakes. Pancakes are such an enjoyable meal. We have been known to enjoy them for our supper also. But one of us was always left standing at the stove cooking up the batter. Or the entire batch was cooked and left to keep warm in the oven before we could sit down together to enjoy our meal. While warm in the oven is good, eating at the same time is even better. Plus these oven-baked pancakes are more tender than griddle cooked cakes.

Easy pancakes made better with whole grain flour!

adapted from:  Jamie Oliver's One Cup Pancakes
350-degree oven

1 c whole grain self-rising flour (you can find my recipe here.)
1 egg
1 c milk
vanilla, if desired just add a splash with the milk

Prepare a 7X11 inch baking pan, set aside.

Place flour into a medium-sized bowl, make a "well" in the center of the flour, drop in the egg. Pour the milk around the rim of the bowl over the flour. Beat egg lightly, then combine all ingredients until smooth. Note: The mixture does not have to be lump-free.

Feel free to drop fruit or chocolate chips or nuts over the batter to flavor your pancakes if desired. Baking time may vary.

  1. OOooooh. I love the idea of a baked pancake -- no one has to be chained to the stove.,
