Messy Recipe (Papa Pancakes) and One HOT Giveaway!


One of the first things I did when we were getting ready to move wasn't packing.  It wasn't going through drawers and closets to purge the stuff I didn't want anymore.  It wasn't touching up walls.  I wanted to clean the oven.  I knew it needed to be done, because, being one of my least favorite things to do, it hadn't been done in a very long time, and with the amount of kids we have and the frequency of baking, it was not pretty.
I wanted to clean it because we needed to sell someone on our house (does anyone else peek in closets and ovens when house shopping?), but I think part of me wanted to enjoy a clean oven for a few weeks before we moved.  You know how you want to remember someone you love with good health and the ability to be strong and self-sufficient? I think I wanted to remember our sweet little house in all its clean glory.  Strange, how attached I grew to it.  
It had a self-cleaning option, but we all know that it doesn't ever quite get everything, and there's always another elbow-grease involved type of follow-up session.  I even got out the razor blade to get the glass clean.  If I had any frustrations at the time, they were certainly released in my vigor of getting that oven spotless.  Once I finally had it cleaned, I would walk by and look in, just to admire my work. 
So, when we moved into Magnolia Manor, I was grateful that I had a new oven to look forward to, because, no matter how clean a place is, you'll always clean it again when you move you and your own germs and dirt into a home.  Our clean oven lasted...maybe a week.  I decided to roast some beets in a tinfoil packet. Someone else had something they wanted to put in the oven at the same time and tried moving my packet of juicy beets, only to pierce it and that beet juice was not forgiving in being disturbed.  Sigh.  Way to break in a new oven, right?  
The new LG EasyClean™ Double Oven Range offers a new option to get your oven clean.  They still have the self-cleaning option that heats the oven high enough to turn the spills to ashes, or you can use the chemical cleaners, but they have a third option!  Simply spray your oven with water, press the Easy Clean button and 20 minutes later, you wipe up the residue and that's it!  It seems like the perfect way to maintain a clean oven, instead of having to commit several hours and heating up the entire kitchen or exposing your family to chemicals frequently.  To learn more about LG EasyClean click here.
One of my messiest recipes for the oven is our "Papa Pancakes".  They're originally called German pancakes, but growing up we called them "Popeye Pancakes" and my children interpreted it as Ryan's pancakes ;).  We like to make them in a regular jellyroll pan instead of a 9" X 12" so they have more of the crunchy goodness that we all like.  It also makes it a prime candidate for spilling or for the butter to drip over the edges, but it's always worth it. 7 out of 8 of us enjoy it for breakfast, full of protein for a good start to the day.
Papa Pancakes:

6 T butter, melted in the oven while it preheats in a jellyroll pan
6 eggs
1 C flour
1 C milk
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 400⁰F with the butter inside, melting.  Mix the remaining ingredients together.  Once the butter is melted (keep your eye on it so it doesn't burn, but if it happens to brown, it's still good!) add it to the mixture.  Once the oven reaches 400, pour the batter into the pan and bake for 20 minutes.  Don't open the oven, as the constant heat is what makes it pop!  We serve ours with a bit of confectioner's sugar and lemon juice, but a jam or honey would also be yummy!
AND, Now it’s your turn to tell me - what is YOUR favorite recipe that leaves your oven messy? Let me know in the comments for your chance to win your own LG EasyClean™ Double Oven Range!

  1. We love a delicious pot roast, but I'm clumsy and almost always manage to slosh out some of the liquid. We'll have to try the "Papa Pancake" later this year when we bring our sons home from Eastern Europe!

    With two more boys in the house, I have a feeling our very old oven will get even messier than it already is!

    ReplyDelete
  2. For me, it's always pie that somehow spills and then burns at the bottom of my oven. I love pie so my oven is pretty much always a mess! I also hardly think about cleaning it, and with six boys, well, you know how little time I have! I love the idea of a quick easy clean. It sounds fabulous!

  3. I have had problems with baked applesauce. For some reason it goes right over the edge every time.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Cheesecake drips through every single time!

  5. Rhubarb pie! I have a dedicated "dirty" cookie sheet to go underneath, but my pie pan is so big, it extends beyond the edges... and still drips sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I like to make roasted grapes with thyme to eat on top of bread with ricotta cheese, but if I'm not careful I have spilled the olive oil and juices right over the edge as I remove them from the oven. What a delicious mess!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Roasted garlic asparagus is probably my messiest recipe! The olive oil leaks over the side of the pan every time! Thanks so much for the chance to win! We don't have an oven since we had to give ours up when we moved. -Jen

  8. Cheesecake always seems to seep out butter. Your pancakes look delicious. I am definitely trying them.

  9. My boyfriend likes extra sauce in lasagna, so it usually bubbles over. It's worth it though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh, I am constantly making messy mistakes. Pizza cheese happens a lot. And I often put things on rimless baking sheets that turn out juicier (messier) than I anticipate. Anyway, I make pancakes every Saturday, but we'll try the papa next weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I always seem to load my apple pie a little too high, a sticky burnt mess results!

    ReplyDelete
  12. My pecan pie bars spill over the edge every time!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I have a ham and cheese sandwich loaf that has a butter spread. I always bake it on a flat cookie sheet so the butter drips down into the oven....

    ReplyDelete
  14. Sweet potatoes. When they get all sweet and drippy. Although have you seen those mats you can cut to the size of the bottom of your oven? I got one for my birthday and thought it was a very disappointing present, but it works so well. Just thought I'd pass it along for those who don't win the oven. You can get them at bed bath & beyond.

  15. Baked Potatoes--my husband makes these and he rubs them with olive oil and sea salt and then just places them on the oven rack. That stuff gets everywhere but it is so worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Baked sweet potatoes, they always leak and turn into a big black 'foamy' mess.

    ReplyDelete
  17. My nana's Apple pie! Makes the most amazing mess, but sO worth it!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I always overfill my fruit pies and end up with them bubbling over!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ooh...Popeye Pancakes are my favorite thing, too! I didn't know anyone else still ate/made them. I'm going to have to try using a jelly roll pan next time - we like the cruchy bits as well. :) Thanks for the chance to win a new oven. It's one of those splurges that always gets moved to the end of the list.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I always fill my lasagna pan too full and the sauce drips over... but it's sooo yummy!

    And wow, we have a double oven in our new house that's thirty years old. It's still working great: and even has a rotisserie option, but it would be fabulous to have a new one. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Any pie seems to bubble and drip. Its now cherry season so that will be the next drip. Thanks bunches.

    New oven.... yeee haw!

    ReplyDelete
  22. For me it's bacon, I love the ease of cooking it in the oven. You can do a whole pound at once. But leave it uncovered so it gets really good and crispy. Just put it on a baking sheet (lined is best as the bacon grease can spill over), set your oven to 400-425 and pop it in, do not wait for it to preheat. It takes 18-20 minutes. I use higher temps for thicker cut bacon. Check on it at the 16 minute mark if it's thin bacon. The only down side is bacon grease pops everywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm always getting things on my oven. I rarely clean it as often as I should. There always seems to be something ELSE to do! :) I love to make pies, but they are very messy!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Bacon in the oven or lasagne when I try to over fill the pan.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Pizza! Some how the cheese always escapes the pans edge and ends up smoking us out!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I seem to make a mess with anything I put in the oven. sigh. I am definitely up for messing up a new oven, though, thank you very much!

    ReplyDelete
  27. When we make homemade Hawaiian pizza, it gets a little messy! (anzhie[at] live[dot] com

  29. It seems as though I fill the lasagna dish up a little too close to the top! I always end up with some marinara on the bottom of the oven. I love the third option on the LG...so clever!
    Hope I can win it to try it out - yowzha!!!

  30. my chicken pot pie aleays spills out. sometimes I remember a cookingsheet, sometimes not.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Sour cherry pie, definately! The juice always bubbles over and I never remember to put a pan under it. :/

    alliburt at gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  32. I cannot confirm exactly how long there have been bits of exploded baked potato in my oven...but they are there. POP!

    ReplyDelete
  33. My favorite chocolate cake. It always seems to overflow the pan a bit.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Casseroles with LOTS of cheese. I tend to overfill. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Fruity desserts, like cobblers and pies are delicious but very messy in our oven!

    ReplyDelete
  36. My husband really loves baked apples. We usually fill them oatmeal or sometimes with brownie mix for dessert. They almost always overflow and make the oven a complete mess, but it is always worth it!

    ReplyDelete
  37. roast chicken! totally worth it, though.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Blueberry Pie!! Yummy - so worth it!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. wow I have to try these pancakes...Our messy meal is beef roast.

  42. Our last home was a fourth floor condo. If you set off the fire alarm in your unit, the building alarms went off as well. Oh, and don't forget the fire department was called via security service before you even had a chance to turn off the oven. I tried and failed to make popovers twice in my life because it was too embarrassing to explain a second time to all the fire men that had climbed four flights of stairs. I have also flipped a cheesy pizza onto my hot oven door. No fire men that time, but a much bigger mess to clean.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Apple crisp and baked sweet potatoes I forgot about and they exploded.

    ReplyDelete
  44. This recipe looks fabulous. I may try making it gluten-free...

    And, that new LG Range would love perfect in my new house.

    ReplyDelete
  45. My strawberry rhubarb pie always bubbles over~ I should just learn to not fill the pie pan so full, but I never remember. It would be awesome to win such a great- and great cleaning- oven.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Bacon. My oven is covered in grease.

    ReplyDelete
  47. My husband's world famous prime rib leaves a film every time. But oh, does the heavenly aroma last forever in there... which I don't mind at all until I need to bake something sweet. Hate having the smells mix! It's like the childhood hatred of peas touching the mashed potatoes.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Rhubarb Pie.....it always overflows and misses the foil I put under it or the pan it is on and burns, burns, burns. sorta makes me NOT want to make pie. sorta. :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I made some cake in a jelly roll/cookie sheet pan. And it went everywhere. But the strawberry short cake I made with the cake was worth the mess.

    ReplyDelete
  50. https://twitter.com/marybethhunt/status/337786254152302592

    ReplyDelete
  51. Quiche....usually spinach, onion, cheese. My oven sits a bit crooked--ie not level. I always pour too much into the pie shell starting a lopsided leak and the action of sliding in the oven shelf causes more mess. I now do this on a baking sheet with foil on it to minimize the mess in the oven and on the baking sheet.....and I really love my quiche.

    ReplyDelete
  52. That pancake looks very much like a british Yorkshire pudding! Stick a few sausages in it and it would be a toad in the hole.
    The bottom of my oven is full of lasagne drips. Must clean it...

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone needs a spot in the oven seemingly at the same time. For that one day too many cooks in the oven makes for a lot of happy bellies, but a mess for me in the oven!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I LOVE baked sweet potatoes, but they ALWAYS pop and spill in my oven, and I can never remember to put them in a pan. A clean oven doesn't last long around my house because of this!

  56. Apple pie. Always with the overflowing apple pie.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Pancake looks yummy. Look out oven. I like my blackberry cobbler just like my cushions....
    overstuffed! p j seattle at hotmail

    ReplyDelete
  58. Apple pie. I can't seem to contain the filling every time I make it. But it's worth it to me to have warm apple pie. :).

    ReplyDelete
  59. A couple months ago my kids made a cake and it went right on out of the pan and ended up all over my oven. After a few more times of using the oven it stopped stinking so I still have yet to clean it. It's always such a chore and I hate it! I could use a easy cleaning oven since mine is about dead anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  60. My pies consistently bubble over, though I have had lots of accidents with other things. Once all the sugar and thickener of a bluberry pie bubbled out and I was left with unsweetened blueberry soup in a crust, with a mess of burnt sugar in the oven. It was awful. aletagrace@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  61. A few weeks ago I had a big crusty mess in the bottom of the oven but couldn't figure it out for a while. But, like many here, it was baked sweet potatoes! Those things are so delicious and so lethal for the oven.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Has to be my chicken pot pie! I think I always forget that my favorite pan to bake in is NOT big enough! And I never remember to put it on a baking sheet! Oh but it smells so good!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Honestly I'm good at making a mess of anything in the oven. Sometimes when I'm roasting cauliflower and I stir it half way through, I spill it over the sides of the pan and there it stays in the bottom of the oven, until a week or so later I discover what the burning smell has been each time I use the oven. Or, of course, pies bubbling over... or when I use too small a pan for chicken pot pie... But probably the worst was when, taking a pumpkin pie out of the oven, I managed to flip and drop it, face down, on the bottom of the oven.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Pannukkaku! That's what we called your 'papa pancakes' when i was growing up. All the Finnish heritage around me, I guess! Anyway, I'd love to have an oven like your LG. Anything that's 'easy to clean' has got my ear!
    Thanks for your blog, Katie. I've been a lurker for several years, stopping by for color therapy, subconscious (I don't sew) sewing lessons and and a pretty pick-me-up at least once a week! So happy you and Ryan have found yourselves a beautiful home where you can raise your baby Dills!

  65. My quiche always spills over. I want it full of veggies and eggs.

    I use that same german pancake recipe and LOVE it. We also called them Popeye pancakes growing up. I have never heard any one else call them that until now. How odd!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I make a bundt cake that always overflows the pan! But it tastes wonderful, so I keep making it.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Apple pie! I always stuff as many apples as I can get in there and it never fails to overflow!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I would LOVE to win! We are moving soon and it would be so wonderful to have a new oven, especially one that is that easy to clean!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Apple pie with a crumbly topping. We always fill the pie with way too many apples (which is never a bad thing) and then top it off with a mountainous amount of crumbly topping, all of this leaves an ooey gooey carmel mess in my oven. I have to mention this pie is one of the many things that my husband did to attract me while we were dating. I love this pie!

    ReplyDelete
  70. It's the homemade italian sausage pizza with extra sauce that oozes over the edge of the pizza pan and messes up the oven but it's oh-so worth it!

    ReplyDelete
  71. My oven is out of level... everything I bake makes a mess.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love to bake but don't really have any overflowing horror stories. My biggest mess maker is frozen pizza.Crusty, burnt cheese on the bottom of my oven is a total bummer!

  73. my shepherds pie always seems to bubble over. i try sealing every little nook and cranny with mashed potatoes, but the gravy inside always seems to sputter and find it's way out. i always bake my pies on a baking sheet so that they don't leak all over, and you'd think by now i'd do the same with the shepherds pie.

    ReplyDelete
  74. You see.. I should not read food-posts while its to early for lunch and to late for breakfast. so super hungry now :)
    I also looove Pancakes. I used to grow up with them while we had a pancake day every week. My mom used to make the best ones in a pan. Still love them. Unfortunatly my BF doesnt so I dont get them often anymore. But everytime I fly back to Germany my mom makes them for me :) (still her little girl with 34 years hihi)

  76. My latest obsession is Naan baked on a pizza stone. I drizzle olive oil and sesame oil onto the dough to make it crispy on the outside and tender inside. Then just a sprinkling of kosher salt.
    Mmmmmm good!
    Plus we're moving to a new house and we need a new oven.

  77. I have a few that overflow! Lasagna, shepard's pie, apple pie. Would love a double oven.

  78. BTW -- will have to try the pancakes in a bigger pan -- have always done it in a 9 x 13.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Pie, it is always the pies that make the mess! They are the ones that bubble over or I can't get it in the oven with out spilling! But the mess is worth it! Pies are a family favorite!

  90. My favorite recipe that makes a mess is apple pie, followed closely by strawberry pie. I'm definitely going to have to keep this oven in mind if I ever get a new one. I refuse to use chemicals (because I'm never sure that I will get them all out). My oven is self-cleaning, and it works well to clean, but it does involve a lot of scheduling -- I have to be in the house alone, so that I don't smoke out everyone, it can't be too hot, and it can't be too cold for me to open the windows.

    ReplyDelete
  91. We love to make a dense chocolate loaf cake that is in Nigella Lawson's How to Be a Domestic Goddess cookbook. Nigella calls the texture "squidgy" and we have adopted that word. The cake is warm and squidgy and delicious.

    and of COURSE I would love to win the oven!

    ReplyDelete
  103. this sounds really yummy. going to have to try it sometime soon. I seem to make a mess every time I roast oven fries. Something will fall down into the oven and scorch so that the next time I turn on the oven I have a smoky mess.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I love my mom's recipe for baked french toast. When she makes it, the pan has a thick and gooey layer of 'caramel' with egg drenched slices of bread on top [English Muffin bread makes it taste the best!] The layers certainly fill a 9x13 and sometimes...well, that caramel gets a bit bubbly up the sides.

  108. I still haven't learned to make pie without it dripping in the oven. And I hate the smell of the long two hour oven clean cycle.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I think my favorite recipe that I make that tends to leave a mess is apple pie. Specifically this recipe. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Apple-Pie-by-Grandma-Ople/ it is amazing. I am also a big fan of sweet potatoes and sometimes forget to put in a baking sheet or foil under them so that they have someplace other than the oven bottom to drip on.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Roasting sweet potatoes on the rack always leaves my oven a sticky mess. I have an old oven and would adore a new one to roast and bake in!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Well, I was racking my brain to see if I could post something other than apple pie because it was mentioned many times but that seems to be the mess maker in my oven. The Papa Pancakes look good, I may have to try them to change out our boring breakfasts.

  126. Cherry pie or anything with cheese! Really anything though, I'm a mess. The oven always has little burnt bits of whatever in the bottom.

  127. Sweet and Sour Meatballs. Never fails, there's a huge saucy mess every time.

  128. Pies. Every. Time. Ha! I think my husband finally put down a layer of foil on the bottom of the oven because he was sick of hearing me complain about having to clean it! Ha!

  129. My favorite cookie recipe always expands more than I think it will and drips over the edge of the cookie sheet.

  130. I think the only time I've had a mess in the oven was a too cheesy pizza.

  131. I seem to get carried away with homemade lasagna, so inevitably sauce drips.

  132. Our oven is never clean, something always spills over, everything from german pancakes to homemade mac and cheese! Plus the door hinges are on their way out so you have to lift and push to get it to shut tight.

  133. We didn't realize how dirty our oven was, until we cleaned it! I think it's cooking chicken at super high heat (a la Zuni Cafe)that really does it. I also use "steam" when cooking breads, and I think it sticks the grease on even more.!

  134. Dirty ovens just mean they're being used! :) We like to roast whole chickens with vegetables and potatoes underneath them. I usually spill the juices while trying to "stir" the veggies.

  135. Apple Pie always makes a huge mess in my oven. We just bought this house six months ago and our oven is older than my grandma I think. Would really like to win this!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Usually it's an apple pie that has bubbled out the top and in the oven.

    ReplyDelete
  137. The milk and cheese in my macaroni and cheese casserole always seems to spill over. We even had to replace the heating element from something boiling over in the oven. I turned on the oven and sparks started flying (inside of the oven) until I turned it off.

  138. lasagna...always! plus my oven is shot...

  139. Pies - seems like I always forget to put a pan or layer of foil underneath and don't realize it until it starts to bubble over! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  148. Well, duh, baking the bacon! Splatters grease EVERYWHERE, but, well, BACON! It's worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  149. The recipe that leaves my oven messy is my enchiladas! I stuff the baking dishes full and use lots of cheese and sauce which, even if I cover them, tends to bubble and slosh over the edge when I pull them out :)

  166. For me on the stovetop, stew always splatters on me, and in the oven all the cheesy and delicious stuff like Lasagna (4 cheese, 3 meats), Pizza, and macaroni and cheese always make a mess of the oven. This one sounds like it's just what I need to have more fun baking and less clean up afterwards!

    Can we say 'oven fried chicken' - the most marvelous stuff, and really the best way to get it cooked inside, but OH BOY - what a mess.
