I’ve heard of puff pancakes before but have never attempted one… so after seeing on a friends blog she had made one for Father’s Day I was inspired to try one this morning… so after an
quick exhaustive search of the internet I found this recipe on the Taste Of Home website for one, and thought I’d give it a try…I was a little concerned that there was no baking powder, or soda listed, and wondered how it would puff but I think the 3 eggs achieve the puff!
First preheat oven to 425
Put 2tbsp butter in an oven proof 10 in skillet (I must confess I have no idea if this skillet is oven proof or not, but it’s still in tact). Place in pre-heated oven for 2-3 minutes until butter is melted.
In the meantime put 3 eggs in a blender
Add 3/4 cup flour
Add 3/4 cup milk
Add 1tsp nutmeg, and 2 tsp sugar.
Mix until well blended.
Remove skillet from oven… IMPORTANT PSA… remember when going to put back in oven that the handle is HOT!! I learned this the hard way with another recipe I did one time!!
Pour mixture into skillet.
Place back in oven… WITH an oven mitt!!
Don’t forget the oven mitt!!
Bake for 20 minutes (original recipe says 16-18, but my oven took longer, and I think could have gone as long as 22-24 minutes so keep an eye on it).
When I took out of the oven it immediately deflated a bit.
I sprinkled with powdered sugar…
I also put my oven mitt OVER the handle so I was sure not to pick up the hot handle… I learned this the hard way… did I mention that??
I sprinkled with cinnamon, extra powdered sugar, and maple syrup (the real stuff.. but that’s a matter of personal preference).
My four year old LOVED this… she had 2 servings. I liked it but felt something was missing… I think made or topped with some roasted/baked or sautéed fruit would add that ‘extra’ something it needs. I could also seeing this be a base for a dinner type meal… Something sautéed like shrimp, or mushrooms, onions w/ chicken or something. I may play with it a bit in the future.
