Weekend Breakfast on a Thursday

Derek has today and tomorrow off of work, so this is sort of our “weekend”. We slept in, drank our coffee together, and then I made a puff pancake for breakfast (I’d never made one — or even seen one — so it was kind of fun; they weren’t kidding when they say the edges will puff up!). It took a little while to cook, but was really easy. If I made it again, though, I’d probably add a bit of sugar to the batter (the recipe doesn’t include any sugar, other than in the topping), but it was still tasty. Here’s the recipe I used (modified a bit from this recipe):

Puff Pancake with Strawberries


1 Tbsp. butter
4 large eggs
1 C. milk
1 C. flour
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2 C. strawberries, sliced
2 Tbsp. sugar
honey (optional)
powdered sugar (optional)


Melt butter in 9″ pie plate in 450 degree oven for about 5 minutes. In a medium bowl combine eggs, milk, flour, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg; mix well until batter is smooth and creamy. Pour batter into pie plate; bake, uncovered, 30 minutes or until golden and center is dry (pancake will form a well in the center and edges will puff up). Meanwhile, mix together strawberries with sugar and slightly crush with a fork. Serve slices of the puff pancake topped with strawberries. Optionally, you can drizzle with honey or sprinkle with powdered sugar.
