oven fluffy pancake...



In blender beat well:
1 cup milk
2/3 cup flour
2 Tbsp sugar
½ tsp salt
2 eggs
Melt ½ cup butter in pie pan in warm oven. Pour batter into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 min. Serve with powdered sugar and lemon juice.

This has been a favorite of mine since I was a little kid. I actually make this for dinner more than breakfast. You may prefer to drizzle a little maple syrup on this, but I have always had it with a little lemon juice & powdered sugar. I just served it up with some roasted potatoes (finely diced, olive oil, salt & pepper, 400 degrees until golden). This is a no fail meal for my family...they all love it!

I grew up with this one too. We called it German Pancakes and ate it with strawberry jam. YUM!!!

YUM! I thought we were the only weird family who grew up drizzling powdered sugar and lemon juice on special pancakes! But we didn't get a giant oven pancake....AWESOME. I'm so going to try this one!

We call them Egg Pancakes and my kids love them as well. I make them a little different....6 eggs 1 cup flour 1 cup milk. I should probably make it for them tomorrow.

I also make those. We call the Crazy Pancakes. My husband likes to call them "Poor man pancakes" I have no idea why...

I made this for breakfast today with the roasted potatoes and bacon on the side.
I just had a couple of questions:
Do you bake it in the pie plate (or just use the pie plate to melt the butter in?) The picture shows the rectangular glass dish, so I wasn't sure which to use.
Also, what is the consistency of the pancake? Is it supposed to be like a regular pancake?
Thanks!
Liz

Hi Liz,

You can bake it in the pie plate. Sometimes I just use a rectangular (11x7) pan instead.
The consistency is very dense, and eggy, not bread like.
Hope that helps!
