These Puff Up Pancakes, more like a French crepe, are delicious and also super fun. I remember as a kid my mum gathering the kids to watch the pancakes come out of the oven all puffed up and watch them sink down. The best way to describe the taste is like a pancake-slash omelette, but pastry-like.

If you love European-style pancakes, you could also use a Dutch pancake maker for pint-sized portions, perfect for kids.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter


  1. Combine milk, flour, eggs, vanilla, and salt in a blender and mix on low speed until smooth (or mix by hand with a whisk until mostly smooth).
  2. Grease a 13×9 inch baking pan with cooking spray. Place oven rack in bottom of oven and preheat to 230 degrees C. When oven is almost preheated, place butter in prepared baking pan and place in oven until butter is melted. Pour the batter into the hot pan.
  3. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown and fluffy.
  4. Slice and serve hot with your favourite pancake toppings!


Top with maple syrup, icing sugar, berries- whatever you’d like.

  • Love this idea of cooking it all at once. No standingaround for 25 minutes. One and done!


  • They look very interesting and I like the way they are cooked at once in the oven. So hard to keep normal pancakes warm until served. Thanks for the recipe.


  • A fantastic idea for the kiddo, will have to try this out!


  • These look so yummy


  • I like the idea of pulling them all out of the oven and eating together as opposed to cook as you go


  • not sure I could be bothered waiting for them to bake but they do sound delicious so worth a try, especially if I have the oven on for something else.


  • The kids would absolutely LOVE these


  • Definitely a must for brunch during the school holidays I think!


  • I’ve never tried making this type of pancake before, but I think I’ll have to now, these look delicious!


  • Now these look wonderful and fun to make, thanks.


  • ohhh these are a great idea for breakfast, I’ve been looking for more ideas for fussy eaters!


  • I make these for breakfast at least once a week- so yummy


  • How interesting. I haven’t seen anything like this before but I do love pancakes so will need to try this for something different.


  • I’ve never heard of these before but can’t wait to try them!


  • OMG I can’t wait to try these. Maybe we’ll have for sweets after a bowl of soup.
