Looking for a delicious, healthy breakfast or a sweet snack idea? I've got just the thing for you—oven-baked pancakes! This simple recipe lets you whip up fluffy, aromatic pancakes without fat.

Dreaming of fluffy, fragrant pancakes but keen to avoid frying? I've discovered a fantastic solution! Say goodbye to traditional frying on the stove—it's time to embrace a new, innovative way to enjoy this beloved dish.

Why bake pancakes?

There are numerous benefits to baking pancakes in the oven:

- Healthier: Oven-baked pancakes don't require frying in fat, making them less caloric and healthier.

Easier: The oven method is simpler and less messy than frying. You won't have to deal with splattering fat or worrying about burning your pancakes.

- Fluffy: These pancakes are fluffy and delicate, ideal for pairing with your favorite toppings, like fruit, maple syrup, or whipped cream.

- Quick: Mixing the batter is a breeze, and baking takes just about 25 minutes.

Recipe for Oven-Baked Pancakes


- 1 lb of all-purpose flour
- Approximately 1 cup of milk
- 4 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 oz of fresh yeast
- A pinch of salt
- 1 apple
- 1 pear
- A bit of oil for the pan
- Powdered sugar for sprinkling

Making baked pancakes is incredibly simple. Just mix the ingredients in a bowl, allow the dough to rise, then spoon it onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in an oven preheated to 350°F for about 25 minutes. Once done, sprinkle the pancakes with powdered sugar and add your favorite toppings.

Additional Tips:

- Feel free to substitute apples and pears with other fruits like bananas, blueberries, or strawberries.
- Dried fruits, such as cranberries or raisins, also make great additions.
- A pinch of cinnamon or cardamom can add an extra layer of flavor to the dough.
- If you prefer your pancakes with a bit more crunch, give them a quick pan-fry after baking.
