Puffed Pancakes: A Family Favorite Recipe

One of the easiest ways to stretch your family dollar is by making a hearty and homemade breakfast in the morning, and this puffed pancake is a great option. It is so much cheaper and healthier than cereal, and it is usually heartier, too, which means that their first meal lasts them longer. A hearty meal in the morning makes for a great day!

Puffed pancake is a hit in our family, and it is our regular Saturday morning breakfast. I love it because it is inexpensive, it doesn’t take long to prepare, and it is filling, too. Usually, we will just pair it with some fruit, or nothing at all since it is quite filling all on its own.

I share this tip in other places, but this is a strategy that I use here…you can greatly reduce your time in the kitchen by having younger children gather the ingredients you need for various recipes. Once you have everything out and ready, including bowls, measuring cups and spoons, pans, and utensils, it is amazing how fast things can go.

Check out my recipe for our amazing puffed pancake.

For this recipe you will need:

  • 3/4 cup warm milk
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla

I start out by heating the milk and butter in the microwave for a minute. Meanwhile, I put all the other ingredients in the blender.

When the milk mixture is done, add it and blend everything all together well.

Spray a pie plate generously with cooking spray. Pour mixture in.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until it is very puffed up on the top and slightly browned on top and edges.

After a couple of minutes it will deflate, and I add some sifted powdered sugar on the top. Sometimes we also top it with honey or homemade jam, too. Puffed pancakes. What a great start to the day!
