Baked Pancakes Recipe (Freezer Meal)

Baked Pancakes are my go to breakfast when I know it's going to be a busy week or month. They make a great freezer meal, and they are a dish the whole family loves. We even eat them for "breakfast for dinner" and they are always a hit.

As I have mentioned before, I am a cold cereal junkie.

Shortly after I met my husband, he learned of my strange breakfast addiction to kids’ sugary cereal and he was absolutely appalled.

He grew up with an angelic mother who would make him pancakes and waffles before school and he wanted his kids to experience the same thing.

{Confession: I would honestly much rather sleep than wake up early to make breakfast. We would never make it to school on time if I started cooking up a storm each morning. }

But now that my kids are old enough to go to school and I know just how sugary those cereals are, I feel like a terrible mother sending them off to school with a belly full of sugar. So, I compromised.

I found this recipe for baked pancakes and saw that it makes a huge 9×13″ pan of thick and fluffy pancake squares.

Once they cooled, I cut them up into individual servings, placed them in ziploc freezer bags and froze them until my kids needed them for breakfast.

When they are ready to eat, I pop them into the microwave for about 90 second, pour some syrup on, and they are good to go.

You could also mix in blueberries, bananas, chocolate chips or whatever else you want to make these pancakes even better.

could i make the batter ahead of time?

If you know you are going to be having a busy morning, but still want to try out these pancakes, you can make the batter the night before and then cook them in the morning.

However, if you do this, we recommend letting the batter sit out for about 25-30 minutes, at room temperature, to allow the batter to warm up a little bit.

If you take it straight from the fridge, to the oven, they will cook a little funny and won’t work out as well. They will still be delicious, but just some time sitting out, and a stir of the batter, would definitely help them get puffy and perfect after baking.

  1. This is such a great idea. I hate sugared cereal because my kids get it everywhere and we have carpet in our dining room (not ideal with a 1 1/2 yr old and an almost 4 year old) and the fact that they eat a whole box and are still hungry (but mostly the carpet thing). I would totally rather make a hot breakfast but my kids don't love eggs. So I have been trying to find hot breakfast options that fill them up but I am not always up for making 12 waffles or flipping 20 pancakes in the morning. I am trying this tomorrow.
    • My daughter considers pancakes a “handy” snack and eats without syrup. I also fiber them up usually with a little whole wheat pastry flour, minute oats, and/or ground flax seed. If use buttermilk especially, they still come out quite fluffy. If your pancake eaters are not afraid of whole grain bread I highly recommend.
  2. Made it this morning and I got 8 thumbs up from my 4 kiddos (: I love vanilla so I added 1 tsp. And threw in some chocolate chips. When cooled I cut into the squares and put light whip cream around the edges and put maraschino cherries on the side. The kids enjoyed decoration the panCAKE square and they loved it! They've already put in a request for blueberry squares (: so easy and so delicious!
  3. Personally, I would add blueberry's, strawberries or something to sweeten it up. I added vanilla,1 tsp and some chocolate chips (like the other commentor) and it's still rather bland. Both my kids went EH, it's okay. IT HAS POTENTIAL THOUGH! 25 minutes was perfect baking time. The next time I'll try it with fruit. I wonder if throwing in some frozen fruit would work. Maybe trying fruit spread with butter. Thanks for the recipe!
  4. I just made these and I think they tasted great! Just like flapjacks from McDonald's! I made them in a medium sized cookie sheet instead of the cake pan so they would be a little thinner and only baked them for 20 minutes and they came out perfectly! Me and my 17 month old son just ate 2 and we are going to freeze the rest for another day. I have yet to try a recipe from Six Sisters that isn't amazing!

    Fantastic! For the questions about using other recipes, I used Alton Brown's Instant Pancake Mix with 1/2 unbleached flour and 1/2 ww flour. I also subbed almond milk for regular milk. I baked one in a 9x13 and one in a jelly roll. Both turned out beautifully. Obviously the 9x13 is thicker. I added chocolate chips. I'm so excited as I was making pancakes 1-2 times a week trying to freeze extras but never having any after feeding 3 boys. I will be making a double recipe each weekend (two jelly roll pans) and freezing for the week. Thanks!
  6. I made this today! My husband and i really enjoyed it, but my picky 3 year old refused to try it (don't take offense as he refuses to try basically nothing we give him, lol). Kept it simple and just topped it with syrup, but I love how versatile this could be! Fruit, fruit syrup, regular syrup, the pancake sandwiches mentioned above, chocolate or other flavored chips. These weren't super sweet, but I didn't mind. I'd rather it not be sweet enough and have to add to it than wish I'd made it differently. We will definitely be making this again.

    LOVE THIS! The possibilities are endless. Baked up perfectly for our taste in a jelly roll pan, not to thin/not to thick. At first no one would try only because the color on top was bland looking. Taste was delicious! Nothing wrong with the recipe as written. Melted a tbsp. of butter, brushed the top and put under the broiler until lightly brown (1 minute/watch will burn quickly) Eye appealing and added a slight "crunch" with great flavor from the butter, sooo good! We topped ours with cooked, chopped bacon & syrup. Next time, I think we will try adding the bacon right to the batter. Home run Six Sisters!! Thanks for all your great recipes!

    I have made these at least twice a month for the last 2 years! I hate standing at the stove tending to pancakes and everyone eating in shifts- these are a great solution for that (everyone can sit and eat at the same time together). Great for the freezer (a good substitute for Eggo waffles) and entertaining. I like to add some mini chocolate chips and dash of vanilla extract. Thanks for this recipe :)
  9. Thank you Six Sisters! I tried another baked pancake recipe, and while it was very quick and easy, it did not provide the standard so to speak pancake taste like your recipe. My children enjoyed eating the bars along with me, and I also enjoyed cutting the cooking time in half compared to making standard pancakes. So since I was initially looking for an addition to my brunch party menu this weekend, I will definitely be using this recipe for Sunday and thereafter.

    I have made these over a dozen times by now and every time is a hit! I make them with a variety of options like blueberries, chocolate chips or the house favorite, cinnamon roll. I add butter brown sugar and cinnamon to together and swirl through the batter before baking for a wonderful needs no syrup start to our day!
