We have a family tradition, both around the holidays and all year round.
We love making brunch, specifically we love to make what we call Puff Pancakes.
Some people call them Dutch Babies, some call them German Pancakes.
We just call them “puffs” for short.
I like to bake them in the oven in a round heavy cast iron or stoneware pan.
Do you have family traditions revolving around a special recipe?
Puff Pancake Recipe
Butter: 1/3 cup
Milk & Flour: 1 cup each
Vanilla: 1 tsp
Put butter in 3-4 qt. pan and set in 425 degree oven.
Mix batter as quickly as butter melts.
Put eggs in a blender and blend at high speed for 1 minute.
While motor is running, gradually pour in milk, the slowly add the flour; continue blending for about 30 seconds. Add a teaspoon or more (I love more!) of vanilla.
Remove pan from oven and pour batter into hot melted butter.
Bake until puffed, about 20 minutes.
