  • Butter – Melt in the pan as the oven warms, this greases your pan.
  • Batter – Eggs, all-purpose flour, milk, salt
  • Brown sugar and Cinnamon

How to Make Oven Baked Pancakes

  • Preheat the oven to 400℉. Place butter in the baking dish(es) you’re using for the pancakes and stick it in the oven as it preheats. This warms the dish but also melts the butter.
  • Meanwhile, crack the eggs into a medium sized bowl and beat for 30 seconds. Whisk in the flour, milk and salt.
  • Remove the baking dishes from the oven and use a pastry brush to spread the butter around and up the sides of the pan.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon and brown sugar over the melted butter, then carefully pour in pancake batter. Bake for 20 minutes. The pancakes will bubble up in the center as they rise around the outside edge, well above the edge of the pan. As soon as you remove from the oven these sides will shrink down.
  • Remove from the oven and immediately turnout onto a cutting board.

Serving Suggestions

To serve, cut the pancake into portions and plate. I like to set out syrup, butter and fresh fruit. Whipped cream is also pretty delicious.


Keep leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. You can reheat in the microwave for 30-60 seconds.

To freeze, wrapped cooled pancakes tightly with plastic wrap and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw before reheating.

This Oven Baked Pancake Recipe is super easy and fun. The simple batter is poured into a baking dish, and you can watch it rise in the oven!
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Set oven to 400 degrees. Place two tablespoons butter in a 9-inch pie plate and stick it in the oven to melt while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  • While the butter is melting, crack eggs into a bowl and beat slightly with a wire whisk. Add the rest of the ingredients and beat until combined well.
  • Remove the pie pan from the oven once butter is melted. Brush the melted butter around the pie plat and up on the sides.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon and brown sugar over the melted butter. Pour in pancake batter.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and immediately turn over onto a plate to serve. I like to turn it out onto a cutting board so I can cut it into portions before serving. (The top one has the brown sugar and cinnamon, the bottom one does not)
  • Garnish with fruit, syrup or jam.

  1. Ohhh shoot, I made a terrible mistake! Forgot to put the brown sugar & cinnamon on the butter so I was going to ask what to do? I sprinkled on top and at 6 min it is smoking up my kitchen 😲 still letting it finish cooking.
    What should I have done?

    1. Hi Karen, I’m not sure what happened or why it would be smoking. Putting the cinnamon and sugar on top of the pancake batter shouldn’t have caused it to smoke.

      1. It turned out great anyway! Found out smoke was from butter had pushed out a little but it did stop after that!!
        Thanks for the best Dutch oven pancake I’ve ever made. This recipe is a keeper!

      2. Kirstin!, it worked anyway. The butter had pushed over some and caused the smoke,not my oven.I was making it for a client I take care of. He loved it and I had a small slice and Woohoo so yummy!! Sorry I panicked. Just wasn’t sure if it would work with cinnamon and brown sugar on top. Was great I’m making another right now the right way.

  2. This is my favorite recipe for Dutch oven pancakes. And I’ve been eating them since I was a kid. And I’ve made many different recipes. With the addition of the brown sugar and the butter in the bottom of the pan makes all the difference in the world. That crunchy little sugary crust. This is one of my families favorite breakfast we always serve it when we have guests!! I always double the recipe and use two glass pie dish is. Makes enough for about six people. I serve it with a sauce that I make with fresh or frozen berries whatever I have on hand and powdered sugar.

  3. We have these in the Uk we call them Yorkshire puddings or batter puddings. We serve them (minus cinnamon and sugar) with beef and gravy.

  4. I’ve been trying out all different recipes for Dutch babies over the last few years. Sometimes they turn out great and other times they don’t. These are the best Dutch babies we have ever had. My whole family agreed. The best part is putting the brown sugar in and having that little crispy sugar crust underneath ! I always serve with a sauce I make with frozen berries and powdered sugar! This will be my new go to !

  5. My daughter wanted this for dinner on her 7th birthday. It was the best Pinterest recipe I have found yet!

  6. We make a variation of this almost every Saturday morning. I also put blueberries and sliced bananas in the batter before baking, SOOOO GOOD!

  7. Seriously! I’m drooling a bit – these look amazing! Pinning and plan to whip these up with my girls!

  8. This looks so yummy! I haven’t made one of these in quite awhile. I’m going to have to make it for my kids soon. I’d love to see your apple version!

  9. This looks fun to make with the kids this weekend! Easy and fancy-dancy pancakes…love it!
