I remember years ago when I worked in a hospital, one of my fellow nurses, Merle, who was from Jamaica, was telling me about her busy morning with her two little kids, and how she popped her pancakes in the oven. I interrupted her and asked her how on earth does one put pancakes in the oven?? Apparently this is how Jamaicans do pancakes, according to Merle! She explained to me that she puts the pancake batter in muffin tins and bakes them like an actual muffin or cake! Well, I tried it, and indeed, they puff up like a little muffin! How sweet to pour maple syrup on them! So, don't be afraid to try it, especially for brunch and/or for company! .
