"These squares combine the taste of pancakes with the texture of pound cake. Serve with maple syrup, honey, or jam. Add mini-chocolate chips for a special treat!" — Jen

Great recipe - I took the suggestions of other reviewers and did the following: doubled the recipe; put pecans, 1 stick of melted butter, and 1 cup brown sugar in the bottom of a 9x13 pan before pouring the batter in. In the batter, I used 2 large eggs and didn't double the baking powder. Just before putting in the oven - I sprinkled the batter with cinnamon. It came out perfect - inverted the pan on a platter and served with the pecan side up. Made it extra rich by serving with a combo of melted butter and syrup, with a side of bacon. Was a real treat - like a dessert - cross between a sticky bun and pancake! DH loved it!!
Good BASE recipe. Quite bland alone. Definitely need to add chocolate chips, nuts, bananas, cinnamon, etc, whatever you like.
I adjusted just a couple ingredients to reflect what I had on hand--I used "soured" lactose-free milk, melted margerine instead of butter and a full egg instead of egg substitute. This baked up beautifully. Between the two boys, they ate the whole pan spread with margerine and my homemade blackberry-raspberry jam. NOTE: If you're feeding a larger family, you might want to double or triple the recipe and use a bigger baking pan. This one made six "squares" for us.
I thought this was great. I topped them with the Sauted Apples from here and they were fantastic. I used 2 regular eggs instead of egg beaters, and brown sugar instead of white. I also cut back on the baking powder as per some other suggestions and did half AP and half WW flour. My hubby said there is no way this would be 16 servings tho...he could eat half himself...lol! All in all this was a great quick breakfast...I am sure I will do this again. Thanks Jen!
I made these for my 3 boys this morning, and they loved them. I added brown sugar and cinnamon to the batter for flavor. I agree that this doesn't feed 16, between me and my boys we finished the 9 squares it made, and they still wanted more. Also I did a breakdown of the calories and 1/9th of a piece equals around 192 calories, add 1/4 cup of syrup to 2 pieces and you have an additional 210 calories. I had 2 squares 1/4 cup syrup, and 8 oz of orange juice, then added the calories up and was disappointed to find I had consumed over 700 calories for breakfast. So I guess if you are watching your weight this is not the recipe for you. Needless to say I won't be eating much the rest of the day. Otherwise great for kids.
This was pretty good but I changed a few things. I added 2 TBS more sugar, 1/2 brown sugar,reduced the amount of baking powder and I put on the bottom pecans, 1 cup brown sugar and 1 stick of butter melted in the pan then poured the batter over and baked. They disappeared fast. Even my dad at 3 peices!
I used soy milk instead of dairy milk and the squares came out awesome! Yummy recipe, especially with chocolate chips in them.
This is AMAZING ... I did the version with the butter/brownsugar ... but as written the recipe would be awesome, too! For those who said it was bland, do you not realize that pancakes are supposed to be served with margarine or butter and syrup??? The batter is sweet ... I only used 1 1/2 tsp white sugar, 1 tsp of baking powder, and forgot to add the salt. (Good thing... baking powder has enough sodium in it anyway!) Hubby said this goes in my repertoire. Thanks for the recipe! You ROCK!
UPDATE: Once again, we were out of pancake mix and (amazingly) we had the ingredients on hand -- Made it again -- without the caramelized topping ... OMG !!!! (as the kids say) Melt in your mouth, absolutely fantastic -- It's easy and fills you up (but it does not feed 16 servings -- okay, so the measurements were made to make it attractive to calorie counters -- it does not make this recipe bad! -- This is definitely a keeper (and so much cheaper then pancake mix!)
