Tip Share: How to bake pancakes

Pancakes are like my kitchen nemesis. I hate making them...but they're so cheap to make and easy to freeze I like to make a BIG batch of them at the beginning of the week and freeze them. I'm still working out the kinks with this technique...but it makes sense if you think about it.

Take your jellyroll baking sheet (just a baking sheet that has a lip around the edge) and spray it down with PAM, lay parchment paper that's been cut to the right side down on that. Then spray the parchment paper.

Take your favorite homemade pancake recipe (as long as it makes around 3 cups of batter it's good...depends on the size of your baking sheet) and pour it on in. I set the oven for 350 and keep an eye on it. The pancake batter should be thin. It won't brown up like in the griddle but it will be more like a cake. I let it cool a while after it's baked up and then flip my pan upside down and work the pancake out. If you're using an old baking sheet you could probably skip this step. I have brand new silicone baking sheets so I'm still trying to be careful (lol!). I just use a pizza cutter and cut them into pancake "sticks"...great for dipping on the go and easy for little guys. If you find a recipe that makes just the right amount of batter..let me know!

Re: Tip Share: How to bake pancakes

I make my pancakes in a mini muffin pan. So good and then you dip them in the syrup!

Re: Tip Share: How to bake pancakes

That's a good idea! How many mini-muffin pans do you need for a big batch of batter?

I use this recipe but I changed it to be healthier...

I use whole wheat flour, skim milk, no syrup in them and less chocolate chips. They are a HUGE hit with the kids.

YUM! I may need to invest in some mini muffin tins! Those look so cute! I'd probably skip the chocolate chips altogether.

Re: Tip Share: How to bake pancakes

I LOVE the idea of the muffins! That would solve my bad tendency to over do my pancakes on one side.

Re: Tip Share: How to bake pancakes

Oh, another question. Do they freeze well or just stay in the fridge? If you freeze, how do you thaw?

Re: Tip Share: How to bake pancakes

I made these this morning but don't have a jelly roll pan so I used my 9x13. Of course it was thicker but my kids loved it and I loved the fact that I didn't have to stand and flip pancakes for an hour! I used my regular pancake recipe.
