On Saturdays I try to have a "good" breakfast-- something that everyone likes. Since Jesse is the one that doesn't like oatmeal, he's caught onto this and looks forward to Saturdays. This is one of our Saturday breakfasts.
I got this recipe from my Great-Aunt Maggie in Oklahoma. It's like a big popover, also similar to German oven pancakes. I love this recipe-- it just goes too fast!
1 c. white flour*
1 c. milk
1/4 c. butter**
Put butter in 9" x 13" baking dish, set in 425 degree oven to melt.
Beat flour, milk and eggs. When butter is melted, pour batter into it, put back in the oven and bake for 25 minutes.
This is best served with a fruit sauce, but we like it with syrup as well.
This recipe doesn't work very well with Whole Wheat.
*Can be made with rice flour for a gluten free pancake, it doesn't poof up much, but is still very good.
**Olive oil works great, and just has to be heated in the oven, but you will need to put some salt in the batter if you don't use the butter-- I think about 1/4 tsp. salt.
