Recipe by SeriousMoms

I didn't see any recipes like this on Zaar, and this was my favorite breakfast as a kid & is my kids' favorite now. It's SO super easy and beautiful when it cooks! It is made with basic ingredients that we usually have on hand.

I used half the butter and topped with about 1T seedless red raspberry jam. It was SO easy and looks so elegant. We'll be having this often! Also, instead of using a pie dish, I used a cast iron skillet. I melted the butter in it on the stovetop, then poured in the batter and placed in the oven.
