Carla Makes a Giant Blueberry Pancake | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 06 September 2019
  • Join Carla Music in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes absolutely gigantic blueberry pancakes. While we love the concept of making pancakes for a crowd, we don't love the reality of standing over the stove, dishing out pancakes to guests like a short-order cook (and we definitely don't love relegating the early batches of pancakes to the oven, where their texture will surely suffer). And so this crowd-feeding "oven pancake" was born: Making one giant pancake instead of a bunch of smaller ones means that everyone will sit down to pancake breakfast at the same time. And because it's no flip, you don't have to worry about your spatula "skills." Use the 10 minutes when the pancake is in the oven to locate your maple syrup and butter and get plates onto the table.

    Check out the recipe here:

        Look for recipes for Japanese rice-cooker pancakes. Great big thick pancakes baked in a rice cooker.

                        This is how pancakes have been made for centuries (if not longer) in most of Europe. *facepalm*

                              i fill my pan with batter, cook it low temp until browned and then flip it onto another preheated pan. Works like a charm

                                meanwhile if you wanna go overboard and brown it in both sides, can't you under cook it in the oven by like 1 minute and then flip in a dish and then put it carefully back in the pan and brown it on the stove top for a little while? i guess it's too much effort considering nobody's ever gonna care about the yellow bottom and our stomachs don't care about colors either :D

                                          Gotta say I'm a bit of a heathen, I like my pancakes doughey and very lightly cooked. I'd probably undercook it and eat it with a spoon, late at night.

The cherry on top (or the syrup on the pancake) was when Carla asked if she was taking the second serving to a friend and Ryan UNABASHEDLY said "No, I'm gonna eat it myself". Be still my heart!
