I have two Pancake lovers in my family and we have to make pancakes for breakfast at least twice a weak. My sweet family wants everyone on the table for breakfast, which basically means “No Flipping” for me. I had to look up for an alternative and I am so glad I found one in this healthy breakfast pancake cake casserole. A one pan, no mess, no flipping, quick and healthy baked pancake is a breeze to make! And mind you they taste just like pancakes and even better. Try the recipe today. I have shown a version with egg but check out the recipe notes to make it egg-less.

Have you ever wondered, Is pancake a cake?
My quest for knowledge pushed me to do a lot of reading about the history of Pancake and the various types of Pancakes which the World is making every single day! We, in India make a wide variety of pancakes which differ from region to region but almost all the pancakes are flat cakes without any raising agents.

Coming back to the question, Is Pancake a Cake? Answer to this is most definitely “Yes”. It’s a Flat Cake made on a hot griddle, with or without a raising agent.

How to make a Perfect Pancake?
For me, a Perfect Pancake is warm, fluffy, soft, drizzled with syrup and a topping of cream and fresh fruits is a bonus. This Baked Pancake Cake recipe is just that and even better!

You can serve this with a savory breakfast item like poha, look at preparing “Poha 4 Ways” or a “Sooji Halwa Bowl” which is equally good.
