Now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about today’s recipe. I don’t know about you, but I generally avoid serving pancakes when entertaining. Who wants to be standing over a skillet or griddle making pancakes to order? Worse, who wants to be the last one to eat because you’re busy flipping pancakes?

Well, avoid pancakes no more. This skillet pancake is perfect for entertaining, as it makes about 8 servings and is cooked entirely in the oven. Just toss the batter in, bake, and serve. The pancake bakes up to be super light and fluffy. I loved the subtle coconut notes and bursts of brightness from the fresh raspberries and the whole wheat flour that boosts the nutritional value. But the true beauty of this recipe is that the favors and mix-ins are endless. Not a fan of coconut? Skip the coconut flakes, swap the coconut bakery emulsion for traditional vanilla extra. Any berry would work well in here, as would chocolate chips, but have fun with your bakery emulsions, extracts and mix-ins. The possibilities are endless!

Ingredients

  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • 4 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 c. sweetened coconut flakes toasted
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 c. milk
  • 2 tsp. LorAnn coconut bakery emulsion see below for where to purchase and substitutions
  • 1 c. fresh raspberries large ones halved, plus more for top
  • 1 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • confectioners' sugar optional

Instructions

  1. Place a 12-inch cast iron skillet on a rack in the upper third of the oven. With the skillet in the oven, preheat oven to 375F.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, salt, and granulated sugar. Stir in coconut flakes. Make a well in the center and whisk in eggs, milk, and bakery emulsion. Fold in 1 cup of raspberries.
  3. Take skillet from oven. Add the butter, swirling pan (or spreading melting butter with a wooden spoon) until skillet is grease. Pour in batter.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until cooked throughout and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Allow to cool for a few minutes before dusting with confectioners' sugar and topping with a few raspberries, if desired.
  6. Serve hot, topped with butter, syrup, or other choice of toppings.

Recipe Notes:

  • I used products from our sponsors – Eggland’s Best and Dixie Crystals Sugar in this recipe. I routinely use their eggs and sugars at home.
  • This recipe uses LorAnn Coconut Bakery Emulsion to give the batter a subtle coconut flavor. This is a water-based flavoring, as opposed to an alcohol-based extract. I’ve recently noticed a small variety of LorAnn Bakery Emulsions in my local Walmart store, but LorAnn’s Coconut Bakery Emulsion can also be found on Amazon (affiliate link). You can also equal parts substitute coconut extract in place of the emulsion, if you prefer.
