My kids ask for pancakes all the time, and I'd love to find a good recipe that I can put in the oven while I cut up some fruit to go on top. I am so weary of standing at the stove flipping flapjacks. I've tried some really eggy oven pancake recipes that taste like Yorkshire pudding - a German or Dutch recipe. I like that version well enough, but I'm wondering if you have anything wonderful that I should try.<br><br>
In general, I have breakfast woes because one of my children will not eat most egg presentations (I think he objects to the texture of scrambled eggs, but fried and omelettes don't make the cut either), and I feel that he needs some protein in the morning. That's why I like the eggy oven pancakes. Any other ideas for eggs that he might accept would be welcome. TIA!!!!

i don't have any oven pancakes recipes, but I was just reading another breakfast thread where many mamas recommended making large batches of pancakes and freezing them. I thought that was a great idea <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

Yeah, I always make a double batch of pancakes and freeze what we don't eat -- that way we can have pancakes during hte week, or the kids can have them for dinner occasionally <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: But my pancakes are super healthful with all the beets and whatnot I stick in 'em.<br><br>
I don't have a TNT oven pancake recipe, but do share if you find one...have you checked out <a href="http://www.bbonline.com/recipe/pancakes.html" target="_blank">this site</a>? It's a bit overwhelming but fun to look at.<br><br>
HTH!

I don't have any oven pancake recipes, but I would love if you share your eggy ones. lol I, too, detest standing at the stove flipping the 'cakes all morning. I always end up eating mine over the stove so I can have them while they're hot!!!!<br><br><br>
I was the PITA kid about eggs when I was little too. I would eat scrambled, but other than that, I would only eat the whites. I hated the yolks- especially if they were runny.<br><br>
If that's not the case with your dc, maybe try soft boiling him an egg. You can find really cute egg cups these days, and just make him a 3 min egg and some whole grain toast cut in to sticks for dunking.<br><br>
One thing I did like as a kid was a "egg in a frame" where you cut a hole in a piece of buttered bread, and then break an egg in to that hole and fry the whole thing up. (I always made my mom give someone else my yolk! hah)<br><br>
You could try poaching: break your egg in to a cup, and then once you get your acidulated water up to temp, swirl it around with a spoon to get a good current going and then slip the egg in. It will make a really neat shape.

french toast. i use homemade bread and in the egg mixture i add a few tablespoons of pureed carrot or butternut squash and cinnamon. i got the recipe from deceptively delicious. my ds loves it. of course that means that you'll be standing at the stove. french toast seems to go quicker than pancakes for me.
