Oven Pancakes on a Stone

Pin It

The specks are the Walnuts that floated up

Okay, this sounds insane..but you can make pancakes in the oven on a large bar pan  baking stone.My last post was a day in the life of a bar pan and pretty cute.

I decided to do chocolate chip walnut buttermilk pancakes...

The direction's don't specify the amount of I just made the recipe below and dumped it in my bar pan, as is, did not grease it up first.

No buttermilk on!

Buttermilk Pancakes

2 C all-purpose flour
2-1/2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
3/4 t salt
2 T sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 C buttermilk * see substitution note
1/4 C vegetable oil (I used grapeseed)
maple syrup, or whatever topping you like...

I added chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. My kids will put bananas on theirs so I thought it would go well.

* Buttermilk Substitution for each C of buttermilk called for in a recipe add 1 T white vinegar to measure cup and then fill with milk to 1 C line. This recipe called for two cups so I used two T and then filled to two cup line.

Preheat oven to 350°
Combine first five ingredients;stir well. Combine eggs, buttermilk and oil in a bowl and add to flour mixture, stirring until just blended (this is where you would throw in blueberries, choc chips, apples, nuts, banana slices, whatever you want)

Pour batter into Pampered Chef Bar Pan baking stone. Bake at 350° for 15-30 mins or until done (my oven is 20 mins but a friend tried it out and it took 30 in her oven). Cut into squares and top with your favorite topping.

You can add what you like, banana with chocolate chips is great too, as is sausage, bacon, whatever you are in the mood for. 

Let just say, I won't be slaving over the frying pan for pancakes anymore like a short order cook. And think about how much healthier they are, no oil in the frying pan, no grease needed on the stone! Just the ingredients that goes into it.
Walnuts are the healthiest nut you can find...add some bananas or dark chocolate or apples or can make these healthy. I know a gal who uses Almond Flour in place of all purpose flour successfully for her gluten free diet.

This is a great recipe! My family loves pancakes, but I never have the time to make them in the morning. Mix this together and throw it in the oven and it really does taste like pancakes!!
