An amazingly fluffy and comforting pancake served with a deliciously aromatic warm strawberry sauce.

Oven Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce

This is one of those recipe I knew I have to make the first time I saw it. And not only kept it in mind for later, but actually made it one day later, I only had to buy the strawberries. I found the recipe on Chefkoch, but I can imagine this being an American recipe shared by another delighted home cook, who found the recipe somewhere online.

I don’t know if I mentioned before, but I think there is hardly anything that I like eating as much as I like eating crepes or pancakes. I put crepes first because they are the “normal” thing for me, as a Romanian, we only had thin crepes there and I only got to know the thick and fluffy American-style pancakes as a grown-up. But I love them too, almost just as much as I love crepes. 🙂 So this slight crepes/pancake obsession made me try dozens and dozens of different recipes. I think the “worst” crepes/ pancake time in my life was during my second pregnancy, I used to make crepes or pancakes at least once a week during that time. The result: my daughter loves crepes probably even more than I do… she would eat them anytime of the day, either sweet or savory.

Oven Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce

It was the first time I made one of these huge pancakes, you have to give it a try, it is so wonderfully fluffy, such a delight! Not to mention how easy it is to make, when you only have to cook just a large one instead of dozens smaller ones.

Oh, and maybe I should mention at this point, this new series is not about pancakes but about strawberries, so actually I should write more about the strawberry sauce accompanying the pancake… 🙂 .

So the strawberry sauce: you definitely have to try this, either with this huge oven pancake or with regular pancakes, crepes or waffles. It is sooo good! It was the first time I had warm strawberries, never really could imagine eating warm strawberries before, but you really have to try them, sooooo delicious.

Oven Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce

I think this recipe for warm strawberry sauce to be very suitable when you happen to buy some strawberries, which are not exactly at their best, meaning under ripe. We do have some of those, unfortunately, in the supermarket, especially at the beginning of the season. Nobody really wants to eat them then, so they end up in a smoothie or something similar. But this recipe offers a wonderful solution, the honey and the butter enhance the strawberry aroma and they get soft and nice due to the short cooking time.

The recipe is supposed to serve 2, but it was enough for all four of us, two adults and two children. I am categorizing it under Mains as well, because we really had it for lunch one day, it was completely satisfying, we didn’t need anything else. But, of course, it is actually a dessert.

And one more word, while this post goes live I am in the hospital having the right half of my thyroid removed, so keep your fingers crossed for me. It is not a complicated or very dangerous procedure, but I cannot say that I am not afraid. 🙁

Oh wow! My kids would love this! I really love strawberries and I think I could just eat the strawberry sauce by itself!

Adina 20/06/2016 - 19:20

I can imagine the sauce being great with just some yogurt or over müsli.

Chris Scheuer 15/06/2016 - 17:14

Wow, hope everything goes well today. Saying a prayer for you. And I hope someone has one of these delicious pancakes waiting for you when you get home 🙂

Adina 20/06/2016 - 19:20

Thank you very much, Chris. No pancakes, just soup… 🙂

Brie 15/06/2016 - 20:55

I will take two of these crazy fluffy pancakes and all of that gorgeous strawberry sauce!

Best wishes for a smooth procedure and a speedy recovery my friend! I’m sure the hubby and the kids will take good care of you. If we weren’t half a world away from each other I would bring you some soup. Homemade of course! Never ever canned 🙂

Adina 20/06/2016 - 19:22

Thank you, Brie, too bad we are soooooooo far away, I would love to eat some soup you’ve made. But my mother-in-law did make some chicken soup with rice for us on the day I came home, it was delicious, and so nice to feel that somebody cares about making things easier for you.

What a giant fluffy pancake! I don’t make pancakes as often I used to because I simply have no control when a stack of soft fluffy pancakes in front of me.

Adina 20/06/2016 - 19:16

I totally understand you, I have absolutely no control when it comes to pancakes or crepes either…. 🙁

Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary 16/06/2016 - 15:21

I could definitely eat pancakes daily, especially when the pancake is the size of my head like this one! SO GOOD! Love that strawberry sauce on top! I’ll take one of these beauties for breakfast, lunch AND dinner! Cheers!

Adina 20/06/2016 - 19:16

Bigger than your head, Cheyanne! 🙂 🙂 Enough to feed 2 or 3…

Hello Adina, thanks for letting us know about your surgery. That’s a big deal. My dear friend Lori had her thyroid removed a few weeks ago and she has had an excellent recovery thus far and I’m wishing the same for you. And sending up a few prayers also. Thank you for leaving us with this beautiful oven pancake with strawberries. What a gorgeous skilletful. We’ll be trying this for sure, there are quite a few pancake lovers in our house. Do keep us posted on your recovery and hopefully all will be well. XO

Adina 20/06/2016 - 19:15

Thank you for your kind words, Allie. The surgery went well, I was able to leave the hospital after only two days and now I am recovering. A bit tired all the time, must be the missing hormones, I am not taking any medication to replace them just yet.

Anu - My Ginger Garlic Kitchen 17/06/2016 - 14:45

I love pancakes, but oven pancakes are completely new to me. I’ve never heard of oven pancakes! These look absolutely ah-mazing, Adina! And they are even more desirable with strawberry sauce.

Adina 20/06/2016 - 19:13

Thank you, Anu, the sauce was finger-licking… 🙂

Monica 20/06/2016 - 23:10

Looks like an amazing breakfast! I make Dutch baby pancake all the time; it’s my husband’s favorite and similar to this. So great, with the strawberry sauce.

Adina 24/06/2016 - 21:05

I have to try Dutch babies too, never made any.
