A super-easy pancake recipe made in the oven! Pancake batter is poured into a warm cast iron frying pan with butter and strawberries, before being baked to perfection. See footnotes for loads of tasty variations, including chocolate, apple and more.
Apple Version: slice 1/2 an apple and cook it in the melted butter until lightly golden. You may add a pinch of cinnamon. Skip strawberries.
Blueberry Version: use 60g blueberries instead of strawberries.
Banana Version: add 1 sliced banana to the melted butter and cook it until golden, but still firm. You may add a pinch of cinnamon. Skip strawberries.
Chocolate Chip Version: add 50g chocolate chips to the batter in the frying pan.
Chocolate Version: add 1 tablespoon of cocoa to the batter.
Plain Version: skip strawberries and top baked pancake with a squeeze of lemon juice and icing sugar.
Awesome recipe! I have made many of the variations and they have turned out great too. I will say that I like this recipe best with just two eggs. Thanks for sharing! - 16 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I used a mixture of strawberries and raspberries because I only had about a half cup of each. I used whole wheat white flour and buttermilk instead of whole milk. I used a round cake pan instead of a skillet because I don't have a cast iron skillet. This was really easy to make with my oldest son and when it was done, I let it cool for a couple minutes, then flipped it out and cut it into pieces with a pizza cutter. My kids had this with a little butter and homemade freezer jam. Huge hit! - 02 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
