Popover Pancakes

April 23, 2011

This was a breakfast treat when I was growing up. It’s a simple recipe that has been in my momm’s family for generations, and it’s sure to be a nice twist on your traditional breakfast pancake. It gets all sorts of fluffy and crispy on the outside, while staying chewy on the inside. They can be pretty filling, so find a partner to split one with on the next quiet Sunday morning at home.  They taste great with just a dusting of powdered sugar or some maple syrup. The other day I had a couple of kiwis in my fridge, so I blended them with a tablespoon of sugar and made a quick sauce.

You will need:

  • 4 T margarine or butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c flour
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 2 t nutmeg

Then you…

  1. Preheat your oven to 425.
  2. Melt butter in a glass pie pan.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk eggs until light and fluffy.
  4. Whisk in the flour, milk and nutmeg until airy.
  5. Pour the batter into the middle of the melted butter.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes. (I usually using a baking sheet under the pie plate).
  7. Eat while hot!
