Blueberry Sheet Pancake: Breakfast That Your Kids Will Love

I love pancakes, but they can be a lot of work to make. Especially when you're making for an entire time. I bought myself a griddle that goes over two burners to make this faster, but even then it can be quite time consuming. Then I learned that you can make giant pancakes, often called a dutch baby, which is all the taste, and none of the work. Here's a recipe for such a dish from a reader.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the entire day, especially for kids. Kids have a busy routine with a lot of physical and mental activity. A nutritious and wholesome breakfast is essential at that age to ensure proper growth and healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, most kids are incredibly fussy eaters and it is one hell of a task to make them eat, especially at breakfast. The fact that breakfast is a rush hour since everyone has to catch up with school and work timings, it is tough to put up with mealtime tantrums.

Interestingly, you can encourage your kids to have their breakfast willingly by offering them delicious variety of foods every day, like the ones they get to eat on a Sunday at their favorite eatery. Cooking fancy dishes every day does not mean you need a piece of commercial kitchen equipment or expensive ingredients. You can make yummy wholesome recipes using very basic ingredients and your regular household tools and equipment. After all, it is pretty boring to eat omelets and portions of bacon every morning.

Here is a quick and fun blueberry pancake recipe that will make mealtimes hassle-free for you. It is a tad bit boring to eat portions of bacon and omelets every day. Everyone loves pancakes and unlike your usual pancakes that require you to cook each one separately, this recipe allows you to make a whole serving of 12 in a single go. That means you can prepare breakfast for the entire household in a short time. Moreover, you can even prepare the batter a night earlier and refrigerate it if you wish to save time early in the morning. This makes the recipe even more suitable for morning meals.


1-pint blueberries
1 cup maple syrup
2 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 ¼ cup buttermilk
2 large eggs
¼ cup of sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla essence
4 tablespoons unsalted
Yogurt (optional)

How to Cook?

Preheat a half sheet baking pan at 450 F. In a bowl, mix blueberries and maple syrup and cook on low flame for 5 minutes. Place the pan in the center rack.

Take another large bowl and whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together. In another bowl, mix buttermilk, eggs, sugar, honey, and vanilla and whisk together. Take 3 tablespoons of melted butter and add to the mixture and whisk together. Now add the fluid mixture into the dry mixture and mix. Let the texture be lumpy but make sure no dry flour is left unmixed.

Remove the pan from the oven and pour in a tablespoon of melted butter on the base of the pan. Pour in the batter on top of it and spread it out evenly. Bake for about 15 minutes until it colors to a golden brown. After 15 minutes, insert a toothpick and check if it's baked properly. Cut it into slices and serve with warm blueberry sauce.
