A skillet pancake that is delicious and fluffy, baby and parent friendly, and doesn’t involve standing over the stove with a spatula? Sign me up!

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!

Ingredients
  

Dry

  • 1 cup white flour
  • ¾ cup white whole wheat flour*
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp hemp seeds

Wet

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ¼ cups milk of choice
  • ¼ cup greek yogurt**
  • ¼ cup avocado oil***

Add-Ins

  • 2 cups frozen raspberries****

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375 and grease a 10 inch oven-safe skillet with oil (a cast iron works great here!)
  • Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.
    1 cup white flour, 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour*, 2 tsp baking powder, 3 tbsp hemp seeds
  • In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, milk, yogurt, and oil until combined. 
    2 large eggs, 1 1/4 cups milk of choice, 1/4 cup greek yogurt**, 1/4 cup avocado oil***
  • Add wet ingredients to dry and stir just until combined. A few lumps are okay here! 
  • Gently stir in the frozen raspberries. 
    2 cups frozen raspberries****
  • Add batter to prepared skillet and spread evenly with a spatula.
  • 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 and for a toothpick to come out clean. 

Notes

* Using all white flour works perfectly well, too. It will just be less filling.
** You can use all oil or all yogurt here, although a combination tends to produce the best texture.
*** Any flavorless oil will work
**** Any fruit will do, although the raspberries tend to have the best flavor in this dish.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • This was great! I left out the sugar (baby is 8mo), used butter instead of oil, replaced 3/4c of flour withwhole wheat, and used fresh blackberries instead of frozen raspberries. Baby and husband both loved it as is. I had mine with maple syrup on top

  • Renae D'Andrea says:

    So glad you enjoyed it!

  • Love this recipe! Can the batter be prepared the night before?

  • If strictly nursing do you use breastmilk? If so what can I use as a second option?

  • Can you use flax eggs for an egg allergy? Thanks!

  • newwaysnutrition says:

    I have not tried it, but I see no reason you couldn’t!

  • newwaysnutrition says:

    If you want to use breastmilk you can, or any other milk that you use in your family.

  • newwaysnutrition says:

    I have not personally tried it, but you probably could as long as you make sure it is properly covered in the refrigerator.

  • Hi there!
    This looks so great!
    Half of my family is gluten free- is there any way this can be made with gf flour? Anyone has tried it? Thanks!

  • Renae D'Andrea says:

    I haven’t tried it, but it is really a basic pancake recipe. So if you’ve found a gluten-free flour you enjoy that works for other pancakes, I’d give it a shot! Let me know how it works if you do!
