To Upgrade Your Pancakes, Turn on Your Oven
Homemade berry syrup, a buttermilk hack, and a toasty butter trick are just a few of the keys to flapjack fame.
Brown-Butter Pancakes with Sheet Pan Berry Syrup
Food & Wine Cooks contributor Andrea Slonecker channeled her lifelong love of pancakes to take this breakfast basic to a delicious new level. Toasty browned butter infuses the barely-sweet batter, which fries up on the griddle into fluffy, lacy-edged flapjacks. To top it off, her super-fast sheet pan fruit syrup comes together in just minutes; frozen berries burst in the oven, releasing their juices to mingle with caramelly brown sugar and a little bit of lemon for balance. Trust us—one bite and you’ll never reach for a box mix again.
