So you'd rather hang with your brunch guests than stand over a hot oven flipping flapjacks? Gather everyone around for a giant baking sheet pancake, instead! When you set this hot cake in the center of the table, everyone can add their own toppings and slice at will. A great choice for busy moms, too: just give the kids cookie cutters to make their own fun and you'll both have a great breakfast! Serve with syrups, jams, and fresh fruit.

I always dreaded making flapjacks for a crowd, making 2 flapjacks at a time in a 12 inch fry pan. This is a great idea. Goes well with baking a sheet pan of bacon in the oven. Breakfast for 6 ready in 12 minutes. I have company coming over next weekend... guess what their having for breakfast ??? Read More

I loved it but it wasn't my family's favorite. I'll most likely make it again when the kids aren't home. Read More

This came out great. I used a box of whole wheat buttermilk pancake mix and followed the directions for the ingredients needed by the mix. I had to reduce the cooking time to 8 minutes and the broiling time to 1 minute. Everything came out perfectly. I will definitely make this again. Read More

I love, love, loved this! Needed to make a Christmas brunch dish that both adults and kids would enjoy - this hit the target!!! Everyone loved picking the slice with their favorite fruit/chocolate chip combo. This was a winner - especially as the hostess because it was EASY to make...took me no more than 20 minutes and was a breeze to clean up. I give this 5+ Mom stars - kids loved it and it was easy! Will be making this frequently! Read More

What a convenient way to make pancakes! I used up all the berries in the house and took it to brunch as dessert. Everyone loved how fluffy it was and not overly sweet. It definitely needs maple syrup on the side or something for those with a sweet tooth. Will definitely use this again and experiment with different fruits and pancake toppings and have in the fridge for the kids to help themselves when they're extra hungry for breakfast. Read More

I loved it because it was simple. My kids loved it because I could make each type of pancake they like. I "divided" it into 3 sections and made the section per each kids' favorite. Everyone was happy with "their" pancake and I wasn't standing at the stove forever making tons of different pancake batters. This has become a weekend meal staple (just as good when doing 'breakfast-for-dinner'). Read More

These are really great i followed the recipe exactly added blueberries but then I got the inspiration with the leftover squares to flip them over zap them in the microwave and pour a little apricot brandy top with whipped cream and fresh raspberries and voila a great desert for the grownups when you don't have time to fuss.

Used sliced banana raspberries and pecan halves. For just me and my husband I made about 1/3 the size of the mixture and used a 9x9 square pan. Read More

My kids loved this!! They gobbled it up! I loved how quickly it came together on a busy morning trying to get everyone out the door & lunches ready. I even cut up squares for their snack time at school. I used bisquick mix (2 cups mix 1 cup milk 2 eggs) with frozen blueberries & strawberries then I sprinkled the top with cinnamon it came out great. Next time I need to add more fruit will definitely be making this again! Read More

Quick easy and fun! It's a great time saver and allows everyone to put on their own toppings. Instead of broiling I simply cooked a few more minutes and this worked great for me Read More
