Baked pancakes recipe
Whether you have a large family or need to serve a crowd, this recipe for baked pancakes is the solution! You can enjoy all of the flavors of traditional pancakes without any of the work.
Why would you want to bake your pancakes in the oven?
I love the convenience of baking pancakes over making them the traditional way. This process is easier when you have to make a lot of pancakes for a family get together or party.
Also, you don’t have to monitor the cooking pancakes as closely as when you prepare them on a griddle or a cast iron skillet like when I have made dutch baby pancakes.
No flipping pancakes is required with this baked pancakes recipe! I love that I can throw these in the oven in the morning (which usually takes less than 15 minutes) and pancakes are ready for me to enjoy after I finish getting ready for the day.
Breakfast can be stressful, but not with this easy Baked Pancakes recipe.
Seriously though… whether you have no kids or 8 kids (like me), you are going to love this super easy recipe. Just mix, dump, bake and enjoy.
This is much easier than the traditional pancakes recipe where you have to stay in the kitchen watching and flipping. In fact, my family prefers these baked pancakes over traditional pancakes, and since these are so darn easy – I am thankful they love them so much.
Since my family is so large (and because they love them so much, we usually make two batches). If we have left overs, then they love to eat them for a snack later in the day.
Oven baked pancakes ingredients:
- 3 Tablespoons Sugar
- 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
- 3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
- ½ Teaspoon Salt
- 1 ½ Cups Milk
- 2 – 4 tablespoons Melted Butter
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
Making pancakes from scratch can be intimidating but I promise this recipe is not overly complicated. Now that you have all the ingredients, let’s continue to learn how to bake pancakes in the oven.
How to make baked pancakes:
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with a non stick spray of your choice. I love using my pyrex baking dish (they have some on sale here).
Next in a medium bowl whisk together the dry ingredients (sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt).
Then in a separate large bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs and melted butter. Then stir the flour mixture into the milk mixture, just until combined. The batter will be a bit lumpy.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, until edges are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Allow it to cool for about 5 minutes, then cut into squares and serve with your favorite toppings.
How do you serve these oven baked pancakes?
We like to top these delicious baked pancakes with confectioners sugar, or even maple syrup.
Also, I love serving this for breakfast with this easy tropical fruit salad recipe. I like to make the fruit salad while the pancakes are cooking in the oven. Then when they’re done, I have a delicious meal ready for my family!
Other topping ideas include: melted butter, brown sugar, whipped cream, maple syrup, fruit, chocolate chips and more!
These oven pancakes are so delicious. They puff up in the oven and make one of the best pancake recipes. It is amazing and super easy!
You can adjust baked pancakes recipe for different flavor variations!
Now you can easily add in some delicious additions. I have drizzled it with honey right when it came out of the oven or I have sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on top. Either way, I think you are going to love it.
Oh… and you can add in ingredients to make it your own. We have made pumpkin baked pancakes, and we have even added in cocoa mix instead of some of the flour to make chocolate pancakes or even just mixed in some chocolate chips before baking.
Also, this recipe would be amazing with blueberries or lemon juice mixed into the batter before baking. In addition, you could use brown sugar instead of the regular sugar for a completely different flavor on these oven baked pancakes.
Get creative and go wild. You can even dye them to make them special – dye them pink for Valentine’s Day or green for St. Patrick’s Day! As you can see… you can have a lot of fun with this recipe.

How to make healthy baked pancakes in the oven.
You can easily swap out the flour for whole wheat flour and the milk for low-fat milk for a healthier option for these delicious baked pancakes.
My kids usually can’t tell when I use wheat flour instead and this makes the baked pancakes higher in fiber so the pancakes are more filling and you stay fuller longer with this variation.
These Baked Pancakes are simple to make and taste delicious!
I hope you try making pancakes in the oven. It’s simple to do and great when making a ton of pancakes.
I also like making baked pancakes muffin tins. These freeze great so you can easily defrost however many you need for a quick week day breakfast!
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does. I hope you try it soon and please leave us a comment to let us know what you think!
Make sure you have a 9×13 pan to make baked pancakes.
You also will need a nice 9×13 baking dish to bake the pancakes in. Amazon has some on sale right now!
Another idea is to use these foil pans and clean up is a breeze. Sometimes we even use these pans on crazy busy nights.
Just use what works best for you. The recipe is so easy and great to feed a lot of people quickly and on a budget.

How many servings does this make?
The pancakes looks so good i could almost smell them. Yum.
I’ve just veganized this recipe by using aquafaba instead of eggs and almond milk! So so tasty! Thanks for sharing
I’m so glad you loved it!
Thank you! These are the lightest fluffiest creamy is pancakes I’ve ever made they melt in your mouth and I used orange marmalade for a topping . Did come out a little thicker so I added a little more water. But these pancakes are the best because of the baking powder maybe?
I’m saving this recipe from here on.
Im glad you liked it!
I ketofy’d the recipe swapping out for almond flour, lakanto monkfruit sugar, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and then added some lemon juice and Lily’s dark chocolate baking chips….absolutely delicious….such a hit with the family! Thank you!!!
Great to hear and thanks for sharing the changes you made to the recipe. That sounds delicious.
This is just like my regular recipe but I never thought to put it in a pan and try baking it! I added mini M&Ms and chopped pecans, at the kiddo’s birthday request, and lightly melted strawberry jam to drizzle over top, instead of syrup! SO TASTY!!!
Could you use boxed pancake mix?
Yes, I think that would work fine. I just usually use the homemade mix instead. Thanks!
Baked pancakes are one of my kids’ favorites too. Like you, I did this because we have a large family and I just decided to try it one day when my kids were little. I use a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper to give me a few more pancakes at a time. Endless flavor possibilities and add-ins and like you said, soooo much easier than standing over a griddle for half the morning. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I’m trying it next!
Thanks for sharing! Let us know what you think when you make it. 🙂
Looks great! Baking it right now for my family. I assume you add the vanilla while mixing the other wet ingredients. ?
Yes, that’s correct. I’m so sorry for that confusion – I have updated the recipe. Thank you and I hope you enjoy these easy and delicious pancakes!
I love this because I am so bad at cooking pancakes lol!
Yes, this is great for quick and easy pancakes!
Can i make the batter the day ahead??
Yes, you can make the batter head of time and refrigerate it for 2-3 days.
Really good recipe. I added cinnamon into the batter. I did notice in the directions that you forgot to include the vanilla extract.
Just made this for the kids tomorrow morning. Used 1 cup of wholemeal flour and 1 cup of white flour and it tastes amazing. Will serve with greek yoghurt, maple syrup and berries – they are going to love it. Thank you for the great recipe.
Big hit with my family, this morning. A stress-free way to make pancakes.
These are always a hit with friends and they’re easy to serve families in need of meals at church. I wish these could be thicker. If I doubled the recipe and put it in a 9×13 and cooked a little longer, so you think it would turn out the same but more dense? Thanks for your time and feedback.
Yes they will be thicker. You will need to increase the recipe. Come back and let us know how it turned out.
