    Puffed Oven Pancake (aka German Pancakes)

    puffed oven pancake

    Update 4/5/2011: This recipe is fine. I’ve been using it for years. But I feel I must tell you that I’ve discovered a better version – my friend’s family’s traditional Yorkshire Pudding recipe. Same ingredients, different proportions, so much better. So, you can use the recipe below if you like…or you can click here to see the new and improved Yorkshire Pudding recipe. I recommend you do the latter.

    Recipe type: Main Dish, Breakfast
    Ingredients
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 3 eggs
    • ½ cup milk
    • ½ cup flour
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put butter in baking dish (I just use an 8-inch casserole, I think the recipe calls for a round oven skillet or something)…heat in oven 3-5 minutes, til butter melted.
    2. Beat eggs. Add milk, flour and salt. Beat til smooth. Pour immediately into baking dish. Bake 25 minutes, or until puffy edges and looks done in center. Serve with fruit, syrup, powdered sugar, whatever you like!
