    1. 1

      In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat eggs, sugar and vanilla at medium speed until light and fluffy and well blended. On low speed, beat in melted mixture until combined. Beat in flour mixture just until incorporated. Gently stir in peppermint patties. Spoon batter into pan and smooth top with spatula.
