I love these! Always have and always will! They are tasty and less work than making individual pancakes. They don't smoke up the house (yea, I need a more efficient exhaust system for sure!) although time wise you may not be saving any.
Try them, they are delicious!
You will need:
1 stick of butter
1/3 C sugar or any natural sweetener
1 C flour
4 C milk (about)
*Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
*Place a 9x13 cookie sheet in the hot oven for a few minutes and then put the stick of butter in the pan to melt still leaving in the oven. Once melted and before pouring the batter in the pan, make sure you swirl the butter around the edges and bottom so your pancake doesn't stick anywhere.
*Mix 4 eggs, 1/3 c. sugar (or less, less is best), and a dash of salt.
*Pour melted butter into egg mixture. Then add 1 c. flour alternately with 4 c. milk, beating after each addition. This batter should feel like thin cake batter but not runny like water so make sure you add the milk carefully. I used 2 cups one time and 3 cups the next. I also used Almond milk which is a little thicker than regular milk but you get the picture, just keep an eye on the consistency of the batter.
*Pour the batter in the pan and dot with a few thin slivers of butter (2-3 is enough). Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.
The pancake will have a wonderful smooth texture, almost like a custard. Serve with fresh berries, 100% pure organic maple syrup or really anything you like. Enjoy the hills and valleys of your delicious oven pancakes!
NOTE: Put the knives away and tear a piece of the pancake with your hands when you want some. That's how we do it in the old country :o)
