Our weekdays are not a time to make fun breakfasts. I’d love to say that they are, but between work and a child, I’m just lucky if our breakfast is still hot by the time we get to eat it. (It wasn't today, for any of you keeping track!)

On weekends, we like to make up for that with lots of fun breakfast recipes! We’ve tried everything from biscuits and omelets to french toast casseroles and pancakes. And this skillet pancake recipe is one that we come back to over and over again. 

It’s a pancake that is incredibly hands off once you’ve got the batter done. And it is baby friendly with no salt and little or no sugar.

By using frozen raspberries as the fruit of choice, you get a bit of a tart flavor that allows you to practically eliminate any sweetener. Other fruits will work, but you may find yourself wanting to adjust how much sweetener you add as a result. 

This skillet pancake is a very simple recipe to make. I’ve tried using several different ingredients for the oil and yogurt, and while I prefer the combination of both the oil and yogurt in the recipe below, you can also use all oil or all yogurt if you prefer. The texture will be slightly altered, but still delicious.

The hardest thing about this pancake is waiting until it’s cool enough to eat!

Delicious and appropriate for the whole family, this pancake is simple to whip up and the cooking is all hands off! Adapted from Averie Cooks

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Keyword: Baby Led Weaning Friendly
Servings: 4 people
Ingredients
Dry
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar, optional
Wet
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt*
  • 1/4 cup canola or grapeseed oil*
Add-Ins
  • 2 cups frozen raspberries**
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 and grease a 10 inch oven-safe skillet with oil (a cast iron works great here!)

  2. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, milk, yogurt, and oil until combined. 

  4. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir just until combined. A few lumps are okay here! 

  5. Gently stir in the frozen raspberries. 

  6. Add batter to prepared skillet and spread evenly with a spatula.

  7. Bake for about 45 minutes or until the center is cooked. Cooking times will vary based on type of skillet used, you're looking for the center to spring back some. 

Recipe Notes

* You can use all oil or all yogurt here, although a combination tends to produce the best texture.

**Any fruit will do, although the raspberries have enough flavor to allow you to reduce or eliminate the sugar all together.

    Can you cook this in something besides a skillet if you don’t have an oven friendly skillet? Also can you use another oil besides canola or grape seed? I only have olive or coconut oil or plain veg oil on hand

  • Renae D'Andrea says:

    I’ve never tried using something other than a skillet, but don’t see why you couldn’t make it in a baking pan! Might be slightly less golden underneath but don’t think it will make a big difference. Any oil that doesn’t have a strong flavor should work, and even one that does should work it would just alter the flavor a bit.

  • Erika says:

    Looks great! Can you use fresh raspberries?

  • Renae D'Andrea says:

    I honestly haven’t done it with this because they’re so expensive here right now, but I don’t see why not!

  • Jenn says:

    Looks delicious! I’ve never cooked with a cast-iron skillet before. Will the pancake stick to it, or does it come out easily?

  • Renae D'Andrea says:

    If it’s well seasoned, it shouldn’t stick. But I still like to oil it just in case!

  • Ashlyn says:

    We only have plain regular yogurt right now. Do you think I could use that for the yogurt or should I just use all oil? Sounds yummy!

  • Renae D'Andrea says:

    Sorry I missed this! I’ve never tried it, and it might not give the texture you want. The oil is a failsafe option and I know it will work. But if you feel like experimenting, then go for it!
