Whole wheat blueberry baked pancake squares

Jelly roll pan with finished baked blueberry pancakes.

Baked pancake squares are a delicious way to make pancakes in a lot less time. There's no flipping involved with these pancakes and they are ready all at once.

Pancakes are a favorite weekend breakfast in our house. And as much as I love them, I don't always want to take the time to make them. Enter baked pancakes! A simple pancake batter is spread onto a baking sheet (in this case a jelly roll pan) and then baked in the oven until light and fluffy. After cooling for a few minutes, you cut the pancakes into squares and serve. This way they are all ready and hot to serve at the same time.

I made these with white whole wheat flour and blueberries. You can use all-purpose flour instead, or a mix of white whole wheat and all-purpose. We had frozen blueberries on hand, so that's what I used for these, but strawberries, raspberries, thin pieces of apple, a sprinkle of cinnamon, etc. would also be delicious. You can also leave them plain and add toppings for serving. We served ours with real maple syrup. These won't completely replace regular pancakes for me, but they are a time-saving alternative that my family enjoys.

I've been making more food lately with some of our pantry, refrigerator, and freezer staples like these pancakes. Obviously trips to the store are fewer these days, so I'm hoping to share more recipes that are made from things people may have in their house already.

Baked pancake squares are a delicious way to make pancakes in a lot less time. There's no flipping involved with these pancakes and they are ready all at once.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour, plus 1 tablespoon, divided
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 cups milk (I use 2%)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries

How to cook Whole Wheat Blueberry Baked Pancake Squares

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Generously spray a jelly roll pan (10-1/2 x 15-1/2 inches) with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the 2 cups of flour though salt. In a medium bowl or large glass measuring cup, whisk together the milk through vanilla.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until just combined.
  4. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. In a small bowl, gently toss together the blueberries and 1 tablespoon of flour. Then place the blueberries (shaking off any extra flour) on top of the batter.
  5. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for about 3-4 minutes and then slice into squares and serve with your desired toppings.
