There's no need to stand in front of the stove flipping pancakes! Our baked pancake recipe makes it easy to make multiple pancakes at one time in an oven-safe dish. Simply mix up the batter and pour it in. Baked pancakes come together in just minutes and are just as light and fluffy as those made on the stove.

After you take your Oven-Baked Pancakes out of the oven, slice them into squares. This baked pancake recipe is best served warm from the oven. Top the fluffy pancakes with maple syrup; sliced berries or fresh fruit; a drizzle of honey; fudge sauce, or caramel sauce; and/or whipped cream or jam. If you prefer a mix of savory and sweet, try topping the pancakes with crumbed bacon or breakfast sausage.

If you have leftover pancakes, you can store them in the fridge for three to five days or freeze them for up to two months. Be sure to label your container so you know how long they've been frozen. Get our handy guide for freezing and thawing homemade pancakes.


  • 2 cup packaged pancake mix

  • 1 ½ cup milk

    Preheat the oven to 425 degree F. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the pancake mix, milk, egg, cooking oil, and ground cinnamon. (Batter will have small lumps.)

    Test Kitchen Tip: Don't stress about lumps in your pancake batter. To keep your finished pancakes light and fluffy, you'll want to avoid overmixing. The lumps with disappear during the baking process.

    Bake the pancakes in the 425 degree F oven for about 10 minutes or until done. Cut into squares. Serve with maple syrup and margarine or butter, if desired. Makes 6 squares.

    Test Kitchen Tip: We like to top this oven pancake recipe with pure maple syrup. Pure maple syrup is maple sap that's been boiled down to reduce water and concentrate the flavors. It has no added sugar, thickeners, artificial colors, or flavors. Maple-flavor syrup (aka pancake syrup or table syrup) is mostly corn and/or high-fructose syrup with added maple flavoring.
