Vanilla Puff Pancake

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by GrumpyIrishLady

This is such a wonderful breakfast. It's sweet and comforting, yet packed with protein to give the kids a good start to the day. Super easy to make. You can even make the batter the night before and throw it in the oven the next morning. For a variation, omit the vanilla bean and add a chopped Granny Smith apple.

This has become a weekend favorite. We love the flexibility of the basic puff pancake batter. We bake ours in individual ramekins. Cheers, Steve & Jason

  3. Slice vanilla pod in half and use a knife to extract the seeds.
  4. Add seeds to batter and mix to disperse.
