Puffed Pancake

"Puffed pancakes are the Cadillac of pancakes to kids. Good served with fruit on top, whipped cream, or warmed syrup on the side. Put the syrup in a small (or medium) bowl, preferably one with handles, as the syrup will be very warm, and you can get burned. You will need a 12-inch skillet, or an oven-proof skillet, or the pancake won't puff)."

Ready In:




  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • You will need a 12-inch cast iron skillet, or oven-proof skillet, and a blender.
  • In a blender at medium speed, mix together the eggs, milk, flour, granulated sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon, until just combined, about 15 seconds. The batter should be a little bit lumpy.
  • Melt the butter or margarine in a 12-inch cast iron skillet by putting it in the hot oven for about 30 seconds.
  • Remove the skillet from the oven, spread the butter to coat the bottom and sides of the skillet, and pour in the batter.
  • Return the skillet to the center oven rack and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the pancake is puffed and lightly browned. Note: (Do not check before 17 minutes have passed and close the oven door slowly and carefully after checking).

  1. I served ours up with strawberries and whipped cream on the top. What a great dessert breakfast for us!


I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with Food.com since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
