What's for Dinner Wednesday

Here's a tasty little recipe that's quick and easy, I've no one has ever told me they hate it ;-)

My mom used to make these when we were kids...Oven Pancakes.  Ever since my brother brought it up a couple of weeks ago at a family dinner, I've been just waiting for the perfect time to make one.  I used a Betty Crocker Recipe that I don't think was quite as good, or filling as the recipe that my mom uses.  I'll have to get hers and post it for you all.  My hubby had never had an Oven Pancake before and he liked it so much that we made two that night for supper.  I made a few changes to the recipe based on what I had on-hand, but it turned out well over all.  So here's what I did....

Puffy Oven Pancake
2 Tbs Butter or Margarine (I used spray)
2 large eggs
1/2 c. all purpose flour
1/2 c. milk (I used plain soy milk)
1/4 tsp salt
Lemon juice and powdered sugar or cut up fruit

1) Heat Oven to 400.  Melt butter/Margarine and brush on to bottom and sides of 9" pie plate, I cheated and used a canola spray, because I'm lazy
2) Beat eggs slightly in a medium bowl with a wire whisk.  Beat in flour, milk (I used plain soy milk, because it's what I had on hand, we don't keep real milk in the house as hubby is lactose intolerant) and salt.  Beat just until mixed.  Don't beat it too long or the pancake won't puff up. Pour into pie plate.
3) Bake 25-30 minutes or until puffy and golden brown. Serve immediately, sprinkled with lemon juice and powdered sugar or topped with fruit.  (I serve mine with cut up fruit).

So thanks to Betty Crocker for the recipe and this picture of what it should look like when finished from
