Pancake Bake with Cinnamon Streusel Recipe | Don’t even think about spending Christmas morning flipping pancakes. Instead, turn them into a bread pudding-like casserole. Prepare the recipe at least eight hours ahead so the pancakes absorb the egg-and cream-mixture. There’s no easier way to serve brunch to a crowd than with a breakfast casserole, but they’re usually savory and egg-based. This pancake bake is for the brunch-goers with a sweet tooth, and there won’t be a streusel crumb left.
