Over the past few months I have been trying to perfect my baked pancake recipe. I wanted it to be thick and fluffy, and cooked all the way through without becoming rubbery.
On the weekend three things combined to create the best baked pancake ever!
1)I was flipping through a cook book at Kmart (which I bought as a Christmas gift) and noticed a pancake recipe that had beaten eggs whites in it. Aha!
2) Daddy took the big boy to the berry farm and they bought back so many berries! Raspberries, loganberries and bramble berries, all begging to be combined with our homegrown strawberries in a giant baked pancake.
3)We had guest for dinner on Sunday and I needed an easy but impressive dessert.
So right before we sat down to a family dinner with the greatest of Aunts on Sunday I attempted to make a giant berry baked pancake… with beaten egg whites as the secret ingredient to fluffiness.
In initially I thought whipping up the egg whites would be a pain in the bum, but I got Noah to hold the beaters while I mixed up the rest of the ingredients and it was actually super quick and easy. The pancake cooked in the oven while we ate dinner and as I sprinkled it with icing sugar, ready to serve, I realised I had just made the giant baked berry pancake of awesomeness!
So good… so quick… so easy!
To prove how it awesome it was I made another one today and fed it to my friend for lunch (yes… we ate pancake for lunch, what of it??). It was still awesome when the kids came home from school this afternoon and scoffed the leftovers.
You guys really, really, need to make this!

We served ours with extra berries and some of that delish lemon yoghurt, but it would also be excellent with ice-cream!
This is the perfect dessert for when you have guests as it cooked while we ate and was ready to serve just as we were ready for dessrt, and it looked impressive, even though it was dead easy! This is now my go to dessert recipe for when we have visitors!
