A yummy and simple way to enjoy the flavor of pancakes in the convenience of a casserole. Always a big hit for breakfast, brunch, even dinner! Serve with maple syrup on the side, just like on pancakes. Everyone puts their own syrup on.

While I may not be the first to make this I am very happy to be the first to review it. As with any recipe I make for the first time I try to follow the directions as written and I'm glad I did. This was fantastic! The cake came out wonderful, very moist and flavorful. The bacon and cheese topping really accentuated the dish perfectly. I baked this in a glass dish so I cut the temp to 325 and it ended up taking about 28 minutes to cook. I highly recommend using real maple syrup not the cheap stuff as it really added a sweet flavor without over powering the dish. We made this for dinner and I can't wait to make it again for a family brunch! Thank you for the recipe!!! Read More

My husband and I thought this was pretty good but certainly not a 5-star. There was something about it that is a little off. It is basically a cake with some cheese and bacon on top. The word "casserole" in the name threw me off a little. It is not what I consider a casserole. If I were to make it again I would leave the cheese off of the top. The crumbled bacon is a good flavor with maple syrup but cheese is just weird with syrup. This was a trial run to decide whether to make this in the cabin for Thanksgiving breakfast with our family and I am not feeling real confident about it. Read More

My kids said I had to review this & give it 5 stars! For picky kids who aren't always in love with breakfast casserole they devoured it! This was a huge hit for our entire family. I made no changes & I wouldn't make them in the future either! Read More

I made this for Easter brunch. what a successful and tasty dish. I did however make some adjustments. I added cooked, crumbled sausage to the wet batter. I reserved half of the sausage and added to the top with the bacon and cheese. I didn't have pure maple syrup so I used maple flavored syrup. The dish was divine! Served with pancake syrup on top it was devoured. Read More

This was really good but a little too cheesy for us (which is blasphemy coming from me - we LOVE CHEESE!!) I would just tweak slightly and this would be perfect for us (and I'm positive I will make this again)! First of all I used Johnsonville maple sausage breakfast links in place of the bacon because it sounded like a match made in heaven (and it was SO GOOD with the flavor of the casserole!) Next time I would blend the cooked and diced sausage into the batter and leave the cheese on top off (but still blend in a cup of cheese). Then serve with warm maple syrup drizzled over the top. Perfection! Love this breakfast casserole for something different! Read More

very good..I cooked a pound of bacon up put half in the batter..after it came out of the oven poked holes in the "cake" drizzled maple syrup over the top let it soak in sprinkled the rest of the bacon on top with the other half of the cheese and put it back in the oven to melt. I also only used 1 tablespoon of sugar in the batter Read More
