We love pancakes in my house. Pancakes made with granola, chocolate chips or blueberries.

Any which way you flip them, we are a fan.

But if you’re cooking for a crowd you need an easier solution than standing at the stove constantly flipping.

That’s where my pancake bake comes into play.

Make the pancake mix as you normally would and get creative with the filling.

For this breakfast casserole made with boxed pancake mix, I added puréed apple pie filling, tossed chunks of sweet juicy apples on top and sprinkled plenty of cinnamon oat streusel crisp topping to finish things off.

This recipe makes one casserole.

Double the recipe and no apple pie filling will go to waste and you will have enough to feed a crowd. 

And it’s a good thing, because it will disappear quickly.  

If you make one you’ll wish you had made two.

I’m not sure which is the best part – the fluffy bite of pancakes, the taste of apple pie or the crunchy sweet crisp topping.

My son would say it’s the crisp topping.

I’m just glad the dish is filling enough to hold him over until lunchtime.

It’s easy enough to give this pancake bake a protein boost.

Just add a little protein powder to the mix or buy pancake mix with protein already added.

I’m a big fan of unsweetened protein powder.

You can add a scoop to just about anything without compromising the flavor of whatever it is you’re making.

This is the perfect recipe for a weekend or holiday breakfast and leftovers heat up quickly in the microwave.

  • Ooh, this would be a huge hit with my family. I love that crisp topping! Definitely a fun breakfast for a crowd.

  • I love apple pie and I love pancakes – bringing the two together in this easy and delicious cobbler is genius!

  • This recipe is delicious, but I think mine came out much more dense than anticipated. Any ideas on where I went wrong or how to make it fluffier?

    • I would try to bake them a just a bit higher heat, 425 degrees for about 25 minutes to see if that results in a fluffier pancake casserole. Everyone’s oven is different and I suspect that is the reason why. You could also bake the casserole in a rimmed baking sheet at the same temperature 425 for about 15 minutes since it will be a thinner pancake and would require less time to bake. Let me know how it turns out 🙂

    When you say use pancake mix are you talking about a complete mix or batter already made? Since there are no eggs or milk in the recipe I don’t see how the pancake mix alone will make fluffy pancakes,

    • Buttermilk pancake mix is a complete mix and all that is required is water, 1 cup. You can find many brands at your local grocer. It’s an easy, shortcut of a recipe to make this casserole. Enjoy!
