Oven Pancake-- April 2010--Nikki

Okay, guys. This is what I call my loophole meal. It is the sole incarnation of breakfast for dinner that my brinner-hating husband will eat. It is kryptonite. And it is one of the easiest things I've ever made. Check it out, yo.

You will need:

1/4 C butter (half a stick)
1C milk
1C flour
6 eggs (yes, you read that right-- SIX EGGS)

And that's all! First, preheat the oven to 450 degrees, and then put the butter in a 9x13 pan and put it in the oven to get all melty. As the butter melts, put the remaining three ingredients in a blender and, well, blend.

Remove the now-melted butter from the oven, and pour the batter into the pan, stirring to distribute the butter evenly.

Bake it for 20-25 minutes, and VOILA!

Oh, man... this looks and smells DELICIOUS. And what was the verdict?

In fact, for the first time in awhile, we were ALL THREE clean-plate rangers! WOOO!

In short-- try this. Tomorrow. It is simple, and it is delicious. Sure, it will clog your arteries-- but you'll die HAPPY.


  1. Very nice! It's kind of like a giant popover! Who can't want that :)

  2. I wanna be a clean-plate ranger...
    This is great! According to Emma, anything you make in the blender is healthy. :)

  3. Nikki - this looks fabulous - I have too many eggs these days - dinner tomorrow!!!

  4. I made the puffed pancake this morning. I was a little worried when it came out of the oven with a huge hump in the middle but we loved it! We topped ours with blueberries, coconut and maple syrup. Very good. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. Hurray!!! I'm so glad you liked it!

  6. Giant pancakes rock. Thank you Aunt Buck!

  7. I have a similar recipe from a friend of German descent, it's called German Pancakes and it has an accompanying buttermilk syrup recipe that is like pure heaven on a pancake. You might want to try it! I'll try to remember to send it to you, or post it here in the comments when I'm home where my cookbooks are.
