This pancake has the flavor and texture of a rich creme brulee dessert. Watch it puff up as you cook it before it settles into a rich, thick pancake. Cut it into thick wedges and serve with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and fresh fruit. This is like a cross between a pancake and a souffle. Great company breakfast dish.
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons butter
- 1 1⁄4 cups french vanilla powdered coffee creamer
- 3⁄4 cup flour
- 3 large eggs
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 -2 cup fresh berries (raspberries, strawberries, or blackberries, for example)
- maple syrup (optional) or powdered sugar (optional)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Place the butter in a 9-inch glass pie plate and place the dish in the oven for a few minutes to allow the butter to melt.
- In a blender, combine the creamer, flour, eggs, and salt, and blend until smooth.
- Remove the baking dish from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 425 deg F.
- Spread the melted butter around the dish, pour in the batter, and return the dish to the oven.
- Bake for 20 minutes.
- Reduce the oven temperature to 325 deg F and bake for 8 to 10 minutes more.
- Remove from the oven, and let the pancake cool slightly.
- Cut the pancake into wedges, place each wedge on a serving plate, and garnish with fresh berries.
- Serve with warm maple syrup or powdered sugar if desired.
Well, taking into account that my blender is a little cheap, this batter was so thick that it almost burned out the motor! I added a splash of milk and it worked out okay. Also, like the previous post, mine got a little darker than I would have liked. Maybe next time I will try NOT turning it up to 425 like the directions say?
I've made this in two different ovens and it burned both times. What's the deal?
The vanilla flavouring sets this apart from other "Dutch" pancakes! My powdered coffee creamer was regular so I compensated by adding 1 tsp of vanilla to the mix. I made 2 servings in a small round baking dish, reduced step 6 to 15 minutes & step 7 to 5 minutes - perfect timing - then served with fresh raspberries, sprinkled with powdered sugar. Thanx Lee!
