You probably never heard of pancakes being baked, right? Well…. I certainly didn’t, but I came across a few such recipes, usually called Sheet Pancakes and have been meaning to try them out for some time now. I eventually got around to trying them and only wish I had started earlier…. ha ha.
These baked pancakes are so fluffy and so good! I feel it’s so much better than standing over the stove and making individual ones. Downside is that you get a big batch. So unless you have loads of people to feed, it does not make sense to make such a big batch. The first time I made these, I distributed them to my mum & sis. As for the second batch, half of it has gone to the freezer…. ha ha.
Needless to say, these are gluten free and from my favourite website ‘faithfully gluten free’. I have tried a number of recipes from this website and it always turns out good. The measurements in the recipe are in cups and since I needed measurements in grams, I have converted them to grams and have not made any modifications. Toppings are optional. First time I used dark chocolates and for my second attempt, I used dried cranberries and raisins. Sooo goooood….
