Oven pancake

On Saturdays and Sundays, the girls clamor for waffles or pancakes—something out of the ordinary that signifies the importance of a weekend day. While neither option is particularly difficult to make from scratch, I always look longingly at the incredibly simple oven pancake recipe on the cookbook’s facing page. This weekend, I charged ahead, mixing up just a half cup of flour, three eggs, a bit of sugar and a dash of vanilla, then pouring the ingredients into a skillet primed with melted butter.

After a few moments in the oven, a gorgeously puffed pancake emerged. As it deflated, we topped it with a berry compote and a swirl of whipped cream. I don’t think it will replace silver dollar chocolate chip pancakes as a new favorite, but it was definitely a simple alternative.

    We LOVE puffy oven pancake in our house, and discovered it because of the picture facing the “regular” pancake recipe, too!
