puffed pancake recipeWant to talk about puffed pancakes? I love making pancakes for my family. They all love them, and I love making them happy. You know what doesn’t make me happy? By the time I sit down to eat my pancakes, they are all finished and ready to move on to something else. I saw this recipe in Midwest Living Magazine, and knew that it was the answer. You make one large, gorgeous, puffed beauty, and slice it like pie. It is a cinch to make, and less clean up than a normal pancake. When the pancake bakes, it forms a bowl, and it is the perfect receptacle for berries, bananas, sauteed apples, whatever strikes your fancy.

  • It’s sweet of you to work with Pampered Chef for a good cause! You have NO idea how long I have been looking for this EXACT recipe! When I was a kid, my friend’s aunt made a similar pancake and I have been wanting to try to make it myself ever since. So excited to try your recipe!

  • This looks yummy! So when you preheat the oven, you do it with the pan in there? I’ve never put the pan in when preheating…is that how it’s usually done? Thanks 🙂

  • Looks super yummy. I’ve loved everything I’m made of yours.

  • The puffed pancakes sound wonderful and I can’t wait to try it! For breakfast I enjoy toast with grape jelly or if I have more time I make apple pancakes which are always a hit with my son!

  • Missing my girls who are off at college because they would LOVE this breakfast. Fortunately, summer is coming! What do you think about making little ones in a muffin tin? I would love to spread the love.

  • We love waffles but don’t make them too often. Like you said, by the time everyone else has eaten, I am just sitting down to start!

  • Are these like a Dutch Baby? Breakfast is one of my favorite meals so I love all of it – breakfast tortillas, although where I live, we use lefse instead of tortillas, eggs cooked in every fashion, pancakes and waffles, egg bakes, scones with tea if I have the time to relax for a while, bacon with everything, etc. Great job Bree!

  • I LOVE breakfast, I literally like all breakfast foods, especially sweet ones. Hands down my favorite food in the history of the world is a big, soft, gooey, cinnamon roll drenched in frosting and pecans… YUM

  • I’m a sucker for french toast. I also love orange rolls but I’m the only one in the family who will eat them so I end up eating the whole pan

  • Yum! I love having pancakes for breakfast! Will have to try this for sure!

  • I don’t usually go for indulgent things like cinnamon rolls or pancakes for breakfast like most people. I’m always content with a nice bowl of maple brown sugar oatmeal 🙂 It makes my tummy happy 😀

    Reply
  • I love puffed pancakes! I think they’re so much easier to make than traditional pancakes. And they’re fluffier and dense at the same time. It’s an amazing combo.

    I can’t wait to try this recipe.

  • I make something similar to this. We call it dutch pancakes, and are so great, with that perfect shape to add any fruit or sweet.
    Mine are no so cute as yours, you have made perfection!!
    Nice to see that, from now, you won’t have breakfast while they wait for you with full stomachs 😉

  • YUM! These look amazing!!

    Because of some medicine I’m on, I can’t eat any carbs or sugar 🙁 So breakfasts have become quite boring for me. No pancakes, waffles, cereal, oatmeal… sad! So right now my favorite is crustless quiche 🙂

  • I’ve always been a bit biased towards waffles over pancakes — the crsipy texture with the sweet syrup and fruit – -LOVE!

    On a regular basis, breakfast is usually hardboiled eggs and banana. Not nearly as exciting!

  • I love a big country breakfast of biscuits and gravy, bacon, eggs, and fried potatoes. Don’t have it often though, because I can feel my weight going up just talking about it 🙂
