Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 5 servings
- 4 large eggs
- zest grated from 2 lemons preferably organic
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup buttermilk 240g
- 3/4 cup sugar or xylitol, 150g
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil or melted butter
- 2 1/4 cups flour 280g, spoon and leveled
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups blueberries 250g, or other fruit like raspberries, strawberries, can be frozen
- 4 tablespoons butter 1 Tbsp warm, 3 Tbsp cold
Prepare a 10x17-inch or 10x15-inch / 34x34 cm or 25 x 38 cm sheet pan or similar, grease it thoroughly with a tablespoon of butter.
Preheat the oven to 425°F / 220°C / Gas Mark 7, no fan (if you have a convection/fan oven reduce the temperature by about 20° or follow the manufacturer's instructions).
Add all the wet ingredients (egg, zest and lemon juice, vanilla extract, buttermilk, sugar, and oiinto a large bowl, whisk until combined.
Place a sieve over the bowl, sift the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt) into the wet ingredients. Whisk until just combined, don't overmix the batter.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and smooth with a spatula.
Scatter the blueberries on top of the batter, then place thin slices of butter on top (the remaining three tablespoons).
Bake the pancake for about 10 minutes. I like to place the baking sheet one shelf above the middle shelf or on the top shelf, so it's golden on top, not pale. Please keep an eye on the pancake so it won't brown too much. Baking time may vary, depending on the oven and baking sheet dimensions. The pancake is ready when it's no more jiggly in the middle and lightly golden on the sides. You can test the center of the pancake with a cake tester or a wooden skewer.
Cut the pancake into squares, serve with maple syrup, a dollop of yogurt/whipping cream and fresh fruits.
- For a 13x18-inch sheet pan increase the ingredient amount by 1/4, for a 9x13-inch sheet pan reduce the amount of the ingredients by 1/4.
- Instead of the vanilla extract: you can use a tablespoon of vanilla sugar + 2 teaspoons of milk/buttermilk.
- Instead of coconut oil: you can use melted butter or any other.
- Instead of blueberries: you can use raspberries, strawberry slices, frozen fruit (you don't need to thaw it), chocolate chips/chunks.
- How to store oven-baked pancakes: in a tightly closed container, or wrapped in plastic foil. On the second day, they taste just as good as freshly baked. In the next days, the pancakes are ok, but the blueberries don't look very appealing. The pancakes can be reheated in the oven or in a pan.
