What’s for breakfast: Puffed Pancakes

During the school week, things are always rushed and breakfasts are pretty much on the go, so I always make an effort to cook a “good” breakfast on the weekends.  My kids love pancakes, but I’m a multi-tasker and I get impatient sitting there waiting for the pancakes to cook which more than once has resulted in burnt pancakes.  I got this recipe for puffed pancakes from my friend Marci’s blog – On My Menu – about a year ago.  I LOVE this recipe because it is super easy to make and you can leave it in the oven and do other things while it’s cooking!

Here’s the recipe:

1/2 stick butter (I have used margarine and it worked out fine…)
6 eggs
1 cup Milk
1 Cup Pancake Mix (or Bisquick)

Preheat oven to 425 Degrees. Place butter in a 9 X 13 inch pan. Put in preheating oven until butter is melted. In a blender, combine eggs, milk and pancake mix. Pour batter into baking dish. Bake for a bout 15 – 18 Minutes until pancakes are puffy and lightly browned. Do not open oven while pancakes are cooking. Top with sifted powder sugar.

Serve with warm maple syrup or fruit toppings.

  1. What are you referring to … “1/2 cube butter (not margarine)”

    one half cup or one half stick (which would be 1/4 cup)

    Please explain. I will thank you in advance for your reply.


  2. Sarah – I wonder what happened. I have made this probably 100 times for our family and never had that happen.

  3. Made this this morning. Added chocolate chips n 1/4 teaspoon to the mix. poured extra melted butter and sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top after baking for about 20mins. Then drizzled a little bit of syrup on top. Oh my goodness it was sooo good. I am an awful baker but this was so easy and tasty.

  4. Meant to say 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  5. so is it a 1/2 a stick or the whole stick for the butter? I’m confused…lol

  6. 1/2 stick Dawn
