A skillet pancake is a wonderful addition to your breakfast meal rotation. It’s far lower in fat than pan-fried pancakes cooked in oil, and it still maintains a wonderful flavor! Pssst!!!…. It’s grain-free too!
Okay, so I have to say up front, that while this recipe is completely doable with 2 ingredients, I just could not leave well enough alone. So technically, this is a 4 ingredient pancake. But don’t stress out on me yet, it’s still a very simple recipe with ingredients you probably have in your kitchen. And yes, you can make still these with just two ingredients.
This is basically a dutch baby pancake, but made without any dry ingredients or flour mixture.
Make sure you have an oven-safe skillet, but don’t worry about turning the pancake during baking. This is a no-flip pancake!
Can I Cook Pancakes In A Cast Iron Skillet?
You can! Obviously, you have to make one pancake at a time. But for some, that’s the perfect way to make a pancake!
You’ll want to consider the side of your skillet, however. A 10-inch skillet will be too big unless you double or triple this recipe, As the recipe stands, it’s the perfect pancake for one person. So pick a small skillet, or increase the recipe. It’s up to you.
For multiple people, multiplying the recipe, cooking in a larger skillet and slicing it into wedges like a pizza is the best way to go.
Do You Put Butter On A Skillet For A Skillet Pancake?
You certainly can, if you prefer the flavor of butter. However, in most cases, it’s best to oil your pan with an oil sprayer for even coverage without overdoing the fat. But butter will work if that’s your preference.
Topping Ideas For A Skillet Pancake
You can put just about any pancake topping you like on this. Here are a few ideas.
- Any fresh fruit pieces or berries
- Any nuts you like
- Chocolate chips
- Maple syrup
- Greek yogurt
- Cottage cheese
- Strawberry syrup
- Blueberry syrup
- Lemon zest
- Melted butter (unsalted butter is okay, but salted is better here)
About Skillet Pancake Ingredients
2 large eggs – These can be cold or room temp. Either will work.
1 medium banana – peeled. The more ripe it is, the heavier the banana flavor in your pancake will be.
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon – This is optional, but tasty.
½ tsp. pure vanilla extract – Again, it’s optional, but tasty.
How Do You Cook Pancakes In A Frying Pan?
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Place all ingredients in a blender.
Blend until smooth. There should be no lumps in the batter.
Pour into an oiled, cast iron skillet. Use a spatula to ensure that you get all of the batter out of the blender.
What Temperature Do I Cook Pancakes In A Skillet?
Bake at 350 F. for 25-30 minutes. It should be slightly golden brown when done. Serve with your favorite toppings. Don’t forget to drizzle on some maple syrup or chocolate syrup!
Multiplying The Recipe
If you want to make more than 1 serving at a time, simply double the recipe and use a bigger baking dish. (Who says pancakes have to be round?) I have made this in a rimmed cookie sheet as well as a 9-inch pie pan.
2 Ingredient Pancakes
These are great made with just the eggs and bananas.
