Puffy Oven Pancake or "Hootin' Annies"

"This is a great breakfast that is truly yummy. The kids will love how it puffs up in the oven. Pour syrup over them or use canned apple pie filling that has been heated up."

    I was first introduced to this when I first got married from a church cookbook. This is a great breakfast. I put butter on while it is hot and sprinkle powdered sugar on top...MMMMMMMM!!! :)

    A staple for Christmas Morning. I’ve been eating Puffy Pancakes since birth.... my South African mother made this every Sunday and especially for holidays! If you add the flour and milk slowly, to the eggs while whisking/beating it allows more air into the mix..lots of bubbles!!, this makes the Puffy Pancakes Peak like little mountain tops and they tend to rise better too this way! The only way to eat these, truly, are with peaches and plain yogurt. MY GOODNESS!! I have tried a many variation in my 32 years, seriously ate these weekly growing up, and I swear by Plain yogurt and Freestone peaches in syrup. Throw the can of peaches in a pot and heat over the stove. You can add a little cornstarch to thicken the syrup... et voila! Enjoy your creation and make sure you bring the kids into the kitchen before opening the oven!! The great thing about this recipe is the entrance from oven door to table... but the Peaks and height will fall fast so have the kids close by for an exciting introduction to this amazing and simple Puffy Pancakes recipe

    Also known as "Dutch Babies" to some ('Dutch' being the Americanized 'Deutsch') -- great with powdered sugar and lemon juice or powdered sugar and jam. Really good for a Sunday dinner. :) If you DON'T start with a hot dish, you will not get the puffiness. I use an iron skillet, and decrease the oven temperature to 400 or 425. I love it like it is -- but if you are one who thinks it is 'too eggy', you can increase the flour and the milk by one-half cup, each.

    My husband likes this recipe but i don't care for it. It is more like a thick crepe, every eggy. I cooked it twice and both time it stuck to the bottom of the pan. I think IF I make this again i will not use the butter but start with a cold baking dish and spray it with pam.

    I just made this recipe. It turned out beautifully. I might have over cooked it slightly, but it was delicious. My first time ever making one.

I'm from Salt Lake City, but I'm living in Seattle, Washington while my husband goes to law school at UW. I love cooking. It's my favorite hobby.
