Puffed up Oven Pancake


Breakfast. I love it, you love it and my brother loves it. No…he seriously loves breakfast. He could eat it for every meal if allowed. To him, nothing’s better than a stack of pancakes, a pile of bacon and a mountain of scrambled eggs. It also helps that he has an extremely high metabolism… 🙂


When I was younger, we’d get up every Sunday morning and be welcomed with the delightful smell of waffles being made. It was wonderful, but I figured there were already so many recipes for various kinds of waffles out there that my recipe wouldn’t seem so special. So I’ve got something even better!

On Saturdays, I would help my Mom stir the pancake batter and peel apples to be cooked. But my favourite breakfast when I was a young one were puffed up oven pancakes. I think it was mostly because I was so fascinated by the fact that it’s flat when you put it in the oven, but comes out all risen…and…puffed up! Also, anything you can pour a healthy amount of maple syrup over is immediately one level up from anything else.

  1. Surfing blogs and found yours. I can almost taste that puffy pancake. I think I have a recipe for something similar we called a “Dutch Baby”! I have no idea where that name came from, but the taste is wonderful! Thanks for the inspiration to make one of these again!


    1. That’s funny, because at my house we actually call them Dutch Babies too! But I thought it more appropriate to call them a ‘Puffed up Oven Pancake” instead. Thanks for the follow!
