Pancakes - baked , and they are square!

 I've been really sick. But I'm still trying to cook some things, I have to. I cant eat everything right now so I cook what I'm able to get in me. I love pancakes and can have them but Ive been too weak to stand by the stove to make them one by one. I suck at flipping pancakes anyway lol.

And so one day recently I wanted them and thought , hmmmm maybe there's a way to bake them all at once. I did find one or two sites that showed them baked in a pan like I was thinking about. But they were too pale and just didn't look right. But like always I took the info and tweaked it my way.

When I make pancakes and bacon I usually bake the bacon in a 425 degree oven. We use thick bacon so this way I don't have to watch it and it bakes out lots of the fat and stays flat. So I decided to do that and while I was I made the pancake batter.

Now I use a recipe for copycat IHOP Country pancakes. http://mermaidstreasures.blogspot.com/2007/07/pancakes.html  I fell in love with them and a few months later they took them off the menu. I was heartbroken but I did find a good replacement. But you could use any recipe, just watch the baking time because some might cook faster or slower depending if you use whole grains or just pancake mix.
  


                                 butter melted in the pan 
So you make your batter. When the bacon is half done, I turn the strips over. This is a good time to begin your pancakes. I take a lg. jelly roll type sheet pan, the kind with the lip around it. I put about a 1/2 c. butter in it and toss it in the oven a min or so to melt the butter. Don't let it brown cuz it will continue to cook more later on.


                                   batter in the pan
Then pour the pancake batter in the pan and spread it all over the whole thing. The butter will well up in some corners and make it hard to do that but tilt the pan so the butter moves and spread it in the corners. My pans are old so the batter wont stay even but it really doesn't matter.

Put in oven while bacon is finishing and bake for about 10min.  Check to see if its browning evenly , take out bacon anytime it has to come out. Turn the pan around so it will brown all over and put back in for 3-5min more.

                        finished baked big pancake ready for cutting and eating
When it looks done, stick a fork in the middle to see if it comes out clean....if it does , its done. Cut into as many pancakes as you want. I just cut squares the first time. I asked my bf if they were good and he said yes .......but they are square! Takes a little bit to get over that since we are all so used to round ones but they taste exactly the same . Saves time and if you have many to feed at once like for a brunch or party, its a fast way to get many done.

Also you could cut them to size to wrap around cooked sausages to make Pigs in the blanket or spread with jams and roll up too. Lots of things you could do. ...individual servings with the bacon rolled in the middle  and more. And I freeze leftovers and love these. They stack nicely since they are squares.

I've learn a few good stuff here. Certainly value bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how much attempt you put to make this sort of great informative site.

Ahhh nice read & that recipe looks delish!! One thing I have learned from my many years of cooking is that snack ingredients make a world of a difference when it comes to the actual quality of a food or recipe. Poor ingredients can really hinder the cooking or baking quality. Thanks again for the recipe!!
