Huffy Puffy

Ever heard of Huffy Puffy? The infamous breakfast pastry? It's apparently quite popular. It's also known as the Puffy Oven Pancake. I decided (around 6 am) this morning to make it for my Father's Day breakfast for Husband (and family), which was both good and bad. I think I might have mis-measured something, because the center didn't rise as much as the edges did, but it still tasted pretty awesome. I forgot to take a picture, because we were too busy eating it.

Huffy Puffy
serves 1-4 people (depending on how many you want to serve)
Printer-friendly recipe

Preheat oven to 475. For each person you're feeding, add 1 egg, 1/4 cup milk, and 1/4 cup flour in a large bowl. Mix well.

Get a large cast iron skillet or gratin pan, and add 2 tablespoons of butter. Once the oven's all hotted up, put skillet/pan in oven to melt butter. Once butter's melted, pour batter into skillet/pan immediately and bake for 15-20 minutes (depending on how well your Huffy Puffy rises).

Serve hot, and garnish with cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, or maple syrup. Super yum!

These are the reason why I need to get an oven safe pan. They're also called baby dutch pancakes or German pancakes. I've seen these in William-Sonoma catalogs, and I just drool. Your husband is a very lucky man.
