Family Traditions: Puffed Pancakes

+ enlarge

Family time is precious to us. With kids of all different ages, it is sometimes difficult to find things we can all do to enjoy time as a family. One way we gather everyone together on a regular basis is with a breakfast of Puffed Pancakes. In our house, we just say the word “puffs” on a Saturday morning and everyone comes running!

“Puffs” (as we affectionately call them) are puffed pancakes (a.k.a. Dutch Babies) topped with fresh squeezed lemon and powdered sugar. YUM! We’ve been making Puffs for over a decade. They are simple to make and everyone loves them. Best of all, Puffs are a frequent reminder of special times together.

Puffed Pancakes

Butter: 1/3 cup
Eggs: 4
Milk and Flour: 1 cup each
Vanilla: 1 teaspoon

Put butter in 3 to 4 quarts 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 of vanilla.

Remove pan from oven and pour batter into hot melted butter. Bake until puffed, about 20 minutes.

Garnish with fresh squeezed lemon and powdered sugar.

It doesn’t really matter what you serve, it is all about the time together building memories.

What special traditions do you have in your family?
