Most Saturdays when I asked my kids what they want for breakfast they usually respond enthusiastically with “monster pancake!” Even better is after I make it Adelaide usually says “Mom, you’re the best pancake maker ever!”
This recipe is super easy to make, quick to clean up and refrigerates nicely if there are any leftovers. Win win win.
Thanks to Heidi (one of my roommates in my single-and-fancy-free days) for the recipe!
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 tbsp sugar
1/8 tsp salt
3 tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 450 degree F. Melt butter in 9×13 pan. I usually do this in the oven as it preheats but you can melt the butter the microwave and pour it in the pan.
Blend the eggs for 4 minutes in a blender. Add the flour, milk, sugar, salt and blend again for 1 minute. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan with the melted butter already in it.
Bake the pancake for 15 minutes and watch it grow as it bakes. It will be big when it comes out of the oven and deflates as it cools.
Slice and serve warm with powdered sugar (my family’s favorite ), fresh fruit or preserves.
