No matter what you call it, it is a winner. At my house, we call it a Puff Daddy in honor of my love of P. Diddy.
I know it isn't pretty, but this quick little pancake can be made quickly and put in the oven to bake while you are in the shower getting ready for work. When you get out, you have this poofy pancake that is best served with fresh fruit and syrup. This recipe makes two poofy pancakes, great for eating one and heating one up the next morning.
1 c. milk
1 c. flour
1 tsp. sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. butter (1/2 stick)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Whisk the eggs, milk, flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Divide butter between two 9-inch cast iron skillets or two 9-inch cake pans. Place in oven until butter melts. Swirl the melted butter around, coating the pans. Divide the batter between the two pans. Place pans on the center rack and bake until golden brown and the sides rise about the edge of the pans, 12 -15 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve with fresh fruit and syrup.
