Long holiday weekends call for special family breakfasts. It’s a time to relax, read the paper and stir up a new family recipe together. If pancakes have been your Saturday standby, keep up the tradition with a new twist. This Oven Pancake is simple to prepare and dramatic to serve piping hot, right out of the oven. It’s more dense than the common “Dutch Baby,” puff pancake recipe, so it serves more people.
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups milk
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
1. Let one of your kids count and crack the eggs into a mixing bowl. Inspect it to be sure there are no remaining shells. Beat eggs with a whisk. Stir in salt.
2. Add milk and flour gradually. Mix well with spoon.
3. Meanwhile, place utter in a 9 x 13 pan. Place the pan in the oven until butter is melted, not brown.
4. Add egg batter and bake for 45 minutes until puffy and golden-brown on the edges.
Serve with good maple syrup, fresh fruit or jam.
