  • Two techniques from baking cakes might help with your baked pancakes:
  • 1. After you pour the batter into the pan, let it sit for five minutes before putting in the oven. This helps the batter to settle. I've seen this suggestion when mixing pancake batter for pan-frying, too -- mix the batter, let it sit, and *then* cook the pancakes.
  • 2. Before putting the pan in the oven, pick it up and drop it onto your counter from a height of a couple inches. (This assumes a metal pan, not glass.) Repeat a few times. This pushes bubbles that are forming immediately up and out.
  • I haven't baked pancakes; I've done #1 for pan-cooked pancakes and #2 for cakes, so I'm sort of combining approaches here.
