Some days breakfast seems like such a chore – life is busy – we as people are busy – the last things that should be difficult is breakfast… right? Well I have the perfect delicious one dish breakfast idea for you to try out – I promise you will love it and your family will also, and they will ask for it again! Well here’s to hoping anyways!!
Fluff Pancakes is a simple easy dish to create – it takes about 10 minutes or less for it to get put together and then 30 minutes in the oven, that 30 minute window can be a life saver first thing! Sure 40 minutes total sounds like a long time, but if you typically prepare a full breakfast you are already spending that much time most likely getting it ready, and dished out. That 30 minutes gives you time to get ready for work, get the kids ready for school, make lunches, read a book, heck you could even just hide in the kitchen an read blogs and pretend you are preparing this amazing breakfast, either way those 30 minutes are yours to do as you please! This dish has you covered.
This is a NO FAIL breakfast, so you don’t have to worry once you get it in the oven. Just place it in and it will do what it needs to do.
Fluff pancakes go from a small mixture of liquid to a big puff of fluffy deliciousness! I think I enjoy making these just to see what shape it will come out of the oven! They taste like an egg and pancake all in one, it may sounds crazy but let me tell you it is tasty!! The outside areas get dark brown (the best part) and that is what you are looking for when it is done, the centre will turn a light golden brown and be slightly wiggly, but only slightly.
These can be served any way you like really. Fruit of you choice, syrup, powdered sugar it all tastes good! The left overs work well for a light snack later in the day as well, I like them when they are cold all by themselves.
This recipe has everything you will already have in your pantry and fridge. It requires – butter, eggs, flour, milk, salt and sugar. Thats it! You could get away with using margarine if that is what you have. I personally do not use margarine, as I prefer butter for my family – I know what is in there, plus it does have a great flavour, you just can’t beat butter!
It is prepared in one mixing bowl, you will need a measuring cup and your hand mixer or stand mixer whichever is easiest for you to get out. But you will need a power mixer as a whisk will not cut it. I use my stand mixer only because it sits on my counter as I use it almost daily for something, and really it is the same amount to clean up. You need the power as you really need to beat the eggs for this to be a success. Just a side note, if you have a blender, you could most defiantly use that instead of a mixer.
You will need a hot oven, preheated to 425*F. Also, you need a 9X9 inch oven proof dish, a 9 inch pie plate will work as well. I prefer glass for this, but if you have metal that would do the trick.
You can double this recipe if you have a larger family or guests over just use a larger pan a 9X13 inch works perfect. If you need to make 2 batches you can do that as well just place them side by side in the oven.
I prefer to serve these by themselves with fruit toppings, syrup or powered sugar – or all together works as well.
Classic Fluff Pancakes
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes Total Time: 40 minutes Servings: 3-4
- 1/4 cup butter – cut into pieces
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 cup milk
- 5 tablespoons of sugar – this can be adjusted, I find this amount of sugar is perfect but you could cut it in half if you chose
- 3/4 cup white flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
What you need to do:
- Cut butter into pieces and place in each corner of a 9X9 inch baking dish, turn your oven on to 425*F, place baking dish with butter inside to melt the butter, you want the butter to start bubbling before you remove it, while that is in there start on your next step
- In your mixing bowl, put in eggs and beat on high for 1 minute until fluffy – you really want to break down the eggs – this is an important step
- Once eggs are broken down, add remainder ingredients and mix on high again for about 2-3 minutes until everything is combined and looking bubbly/fluffy.
- By this time your butter should be nice and bubbly – remove from the oven pour the mixture from your bowl into the baking dish – place back in the oven, set your timer for 30 minutes.
- Once it is done, remove from the oven and it is ready to serve.
