I love love looove pancakes. I mean, who doesn't?! They are fluffy, sweet, and PERFECT for mornings or afternoons with a cup of coffee or tea. Like Lemon Cardamom Pancakes. Oh sooo yum with a cup of black tea on a sunny terrace on afternoons.
The only thing I don’t like about pancakes is making ones. Especially if I'm making pancakes for a large group of people. OR when I'm super tired, and my family - including me - wants some pancakes for dessert after the dinner. Standing, or should I say slaving over the stove flipping pancakes in the early morning or in afternoons is not my fav thing.
Ok, I can always persuade husband to flip the pancakes... but some days you just want to have that no-fuss quick dessert ready while in same time you have nice relaxed time with your family. You know?! And that's when baked pancake casserole comes to the rescue.

And you will love it - in the morning, afternoons, for your guest or for your favorite mom for Mother's Day!
This Blueberry Pancake Casserole is made with ALL NATURAL, nutritious ingredients – but also out-of-this-world delicious.
To make these pancakes I used whole grain flour - spelt flour (dinkel wheat). It has a nutty, slightly sweet flavor and it's loaded with many nutrients. When compared to wheat flour, spelt flour is slightly more nutritious with higher contents of copper, iron, zinc, magnesium, and phosphorus.
I use whole grain flour in baking a lot. Actually, I completely replaced all-purpose wheat flour with whole grain. I even make crepes with whole grain flour. Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Roll-Ups ... yup, also made with whole grain flour. But when making pancakes, I realize that whole grain pancakes tend to be dense and heavy. And while I love that texture in other sweet treats I make, here in this sheet pan pancakes recipe, I wanted more fluffy and tender butter. And that's where BUTTERMILK comes to rescue.
Buttermilk does wonders in baking. It makes the baked good more tender, perfectly light and soft textured. Although you can buy buttermilk in store, I don't do that. I mean, WHY when you can make buttermilk at home in like 5 minutes. It's super easy, and you make it fresh and just enough for what you need, so there's no need for storing bottles in the fridge.
To make buttermilk all you need is some dairy milk and lemon juice or cider vinegar. Just combine 1 cup of milk with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar and let sit for 2 minutes. After two minutes you will see that the milk has curdled and is ready to use. Super easy! The acidity in buttermilk will soften gluten in flour and make batter rise to soft fluffy perfection.
That's why this Blueberry Pancake Casserole is so soft and unbelievably thick.
I flavored this Baked pancake casserole with beautifully scented Ceylon cinnamon and vanilla. Cinnamon paired nicely with fruity and sweet blueberry flavor, but also enriched the batter and elevate it's overall taste. To sweeten the pancake casserole batter, I used pure maple syrup, making this casserole refined sugar-free treat.
Baked pancake casserole is so much fun to make. You can get creative and use whatever fruit you like to sprinkle it on the batter - bananas, strawberries, raspberries, or any other fruit that is in season. Add some chocolate chunks on top, and you'll get a delicious power-breakfast your family will LOVE. Yum!
