Okay, so this is a pretty simple recipe that’s based on the AMAZEBALLS! pancakes and sausage on a stick that I made for veganmofo. Upon our success with the pancakes and sausage – the batter for which is baked in the oven in canoe pans – I thought it might be fun to try out a baked pancake dish. So I got to searching the internets. Many of the bake-able pancake recipes I found online are for thicker, denser, almost pastry-like pancakes. I tried one and, alas, it was a complete and utter failure. I never could get the damn things to bake all the way through. Plus I was really craving a more traditional, American style pancake anyway. So I went back to the drawing board and decided to stick with the original batter recipe. Voilà! Sweet, sugary, syrupy success!

These pancakes aren’t quite as light and fluffy as those baked on the griddle, but they’re awfully close. Plus they have the advantage of simplicity: just make the batter, divide it evenly between two cake pans, and pop ’em in the oven for twenty minutes or so. No hovering over a hot griddle! No flipping pancakes! No doughy mess! A great go-to recipe for slackers and stoners, in other words.

Ginormous Oven-Baked Pancakes

(Make two very large, 9″ round pancakes. Serves two to three people.)

Ingredients

2 cups Bisquick
1 1/2 cup soy milk
Egg substitute equivalent to two eggs (I used Ener-G Egg Replacer)
Spices to taste (I used a tablespoon of Pumpkin Pie Spice)
Toppings to taste (I used maple syrup and powdered sugar)
Vegan meaty sides (I had two links of Lightlife Smart Links, Breakfast Sausage styley)

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine the Bisquick, soy milk and egg substitute and mix well. (A whisk might come in handy here!) Add spices to taste.

2. Spray two 9″ round cake pans with cooking spray and pour equal amounts of batter into each pan. Bake at 425 degrees F for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the pancakes from the pan and serve immediately!
