I always thought the baked pancakes would be a lot of work, but this was actually a lot less work for me than making batches of regular pancakes. And everyone was so impressed!

Although my waistline won’t like it, this may become a regular feature of weekend breakfasts, or at least holiday weekend breakfasts.
