Puffy baked pancake

    30 min

    An excellent pancake recipe, that's not made in a pan! Batter is poured into a baking dish with hot melted butter, then baked until puffy and golden. The resulting pancake is buttery, fluffy and scrummy.

    1. Preheat an oven to 190 C / Gas 5.

    Even though I'm German, I don't recognize this recipe but I have to say it is simple, delicious and filling. I half the recipe and bake in a small cast iron skillet right in the oven. Delicious as is or served with a light drizzle of syrup. I have also made this, sans the vanilla and cinnamon, as a vegetable pancake with sautéed mushrooms and onions. This makes much more than one serving LOL!  -  14 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Egg-cellent and super easy to make. It's going to disappoint if you're expecting anything like an American-style pancake. The eggs give it an entirely different texture. We had ours with some homemade mulberry syrup (with whole mulberries) mixed with regular maple syrup and with a dollop of sour cream. Amazingly decadent!  -  14 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    i've made variations of this, called Dutch Pancake, Old World Pancake, etc...can do lots of things with it; it's great with apples too.  -  17 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
