Yeah, we looove those too!
Last year, I saw an Oven-Baked Blueberry Pancake on Martha Stewart’s website and couldn’t wait to make it. But before you could say, “babe, where’s the maple syrup?” we hit a snag.
See, the original recipe calls for the batter to be baked in a 10-inch cast iron skillet. We could never fit a skillet that size in our toaster oven.
Not ready to give up my dream of enjoying breakfast with everyone instead of flipping pancakes all morning I soldiered on.
Well, it turns out an 8 x 8 metal baking pan is a pretty good substitute if you don’t have a 10-inch skillet or a toaster oven large enough to fit one.
Just imagine how big that toaster oven would have to be!
A metal pan is a safe toaster oven baking pan choice and it gives the best “Pancake Style” results = Golden edges with a tender fluffy center.
For a fork and knife, sit at the table style breakfast serve the baked pancake cut into four large slices.
But that’s no fun. Instead, we like to slice the “pancake” into 16 smaller squares.
They’re a kid-friendly size that’s ideal for dunking in maple syrup!

Why You Should Add Berries and Citrus To Your Pancake
When my nephew was visiting last summer I made a batch with blackberries and lemon special for him. He just can’t get enough of that sweet-tart blackberry flavor.
The lemony citrus and juicy berries paired perfectly with the honey and tangy buttermilk.
For convenience, I’ve used frozen berries a few times. Although the berries sink more in the batter they hold up well and don’t get too soggy.
Know what that means?
Berry season or not, you can enjoy this blackberry filled breakfast all year long!
Pssst…this recipe is not for a Dutch baby which is sometimes referred to as an oven pancake. Dutch Babies are puffy with a custard-like center, this recipe is more of a baked pancake-cake situation.
