Puffed Oven Pancake
This is one of my most favorite recipes ever! I recently made it with sauteed cinnamon apples. This was my first time using fresh peaches.
Oh my goodness! It was excellent!
The wonderful thing is the recipe only requires a few basic ingredients and the oven does the rest.
It's a great dessert or breakfast or Sunday night dinner. We love breakfast for dinner. Today, I made it for breakfast with some scrambled eggs. If I had bacon, I would have served that too. Oh well!
Really though, you can use any fruit, hot or cold. You could use syrup (I don't feel the need), sprinkle it with powdered sugar, or leave it plain. Just be sure you have enough because everyone fights over it.
First we start with a 425 degree oven. Preheat the oven. Put 1-2 Tablespoons butter in the pan and put it in the oven to melt.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, blend 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk, 2-3 beaten eggs, 1 tsp. vanilla, and 2 tsp sugar. (I use agave nectar for all my sweeteners. It has VERY low glycemic index, perfect for Bill's diet).
Pour the mixture into the HOT skillet, use oven mitts!
And watch it grow and bubble, but don't open the oven door too much, it will flop. If you have a light and see-through door it helps. Otherwise just peek!
Bake 15-20 minutes till it looks like this picture, lightly browned.
Take the skillet out of the oven...
And pour on your fruit...
Sift some powdered sugar on it, OOooohh so pretty!
Lukie loves it.
Shovel it in boy!
I made a smaller one for me :)
