Pancake Squares

As I was getting ready to prep the French Toast Casserole for our play date brunch, my daughter asked for pancakes.  Usually, I don't switch my menu (especially when I have my ingredients out and ready), but my six-year old has been having some issues with separation anxiety so I thought making her pancakes might go a long way.  I wanted to make her happy, but I did not want to flip pancakes for 5 kids; then, help them make sock snowmen.

I found this idea on Pinterest.  It seemed almost too good to be true.  I prepped mine the night before and baked it in the morning; my cook time was a bit longer since my batter was refrigerated.  We threw some sprinkles on since it was Groundhog Day.  This recipe yielded enough to feed 5 young kids; next time, I'll double it for my husband.

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 T melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • Optional toppings-syrup, sprinkles, blueberries, chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Grease a 8 x 8 casserole dish.
  2. Beat milk, butter, and egg.  Add sugar.  Gradually mix in the flour.  Add baking powder and salt; stir with a wire whisk until well combined.
  3. Bake 20-25 minutes until edges are beginning to brown.

Difficulty: Easier than standing and flipping pancakes!
Time: 10 minute prep; 25 minutes baking time
