Puffy Pancake

My dear friend Gretchen of Canela y Comino put up this incredible recipe for a Puffy Oven Pancake. No puree in this one, just the magic of a pie plate.

The Recipe:
2 tablespoons of butter
2 large eggs
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of lowfat milk
1/4 teaspoon of salt

Heat oven to 400ºF. Melt butter in a 9-inch pie plate in the oven, brush butter up the sides of the plate. Beat eggs slightly in medium bowl with wire whisk or hand beater. Beat in remaining ingredients until mixed (do not overbeat). Pour into hot pie plate. Bake 25 to 20 minutes or until puffy and deep golden brown. Serve immediately. Makes 2 to 4 servings.

From Betty Crocker’s New Cookbook and Well Fed Network.

The recipe says that it makes 2 to 4 servings, but my two 5-year olds ate the entire thing for breakfast this morning. They love this pancake! Gretchen, thanks for sharing it with our family.

Mom Tip: Do you have slow starters in the morning like I do? Put this in the oven and watch their eyes light up. In about the time it takes to bake, my kids are dressed with hair combed and beds made.
