I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t yet know this, but I have big, BIG love for the baked pancake.
They seem to not really be a big brunch thing around the holidays, not as big as the make ahead breakfasts anyway (like this french toast casserole or this baked overnight french toast or this breakfast casserole).
But I don’t understand why.
We love, love pancakes. We used to be that family who made a big Saturday or Sunday pancake breakfast (and by “big” I mean we made pancakes, and that alone was a pretty big deal) every weekend, but we’ve kind of gotten away from it. Maybe it’s because as we add to our family there’s more and more flipping and less sitting and eating and relaxing.
And so here’s where this ridiculously easy and wonderful baked pancake comes in — you just whip up your pancake batter, and then you pour it into a pan and bake it. You can even make the pancake batter the night before so you just have to bake in the morning, and then you all eat it hot at the same time. It is kind of amazing.
Clearly, way too much time has passed since this Healthier Cinnamon Roll Baked Pancake (<— which you also need to try!), but I’m back and I think this is going to be a regular addition to our weekend breakfast menu. I hope it will be to yours, too!
Tips & Tricks for Making this Lemon Baked Pancake with Triple Berry Sauce:
- I love to make as much ahead of time as possible. You can definitely whip up the pancake batter and store it in the fridge (although you may want to leave out the lemon until just before you bake), and you can make the berry sauce days in advance or even weeks and just stick it in the freezer.
- If you want, feel free to skip the berry sauce altogether and top with fresh berries and yogurt for a healthier alternative.

I made these for easter brunch as one of my items and it was great! I made the sauce simpler (I didn’t have maple syrup) and just did frozen berries and brown sugar reduced over heat, and then added that to cool whip. Overall awesome addition so thanks. 🙂
