Puff Mommy


I've got eggs and I like sweet,
So when its time to cook some eats,
I use up the eggs and the fruit,
And feed the family to boot, yo.

Okay, Puff Daddy, or P Diddy as he goes by these days, may have a thing or two on me when it comes to lyrics but not when it comes to baking the fastest consumed Puff Pancake on the Planet!  This delectable recipe was published in Sunset magazine a couple months back and uses raspberries and strawberries, plus a pinch of sugar and eggs.  Guaranteed to disappear before the pan cools down.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 5 Tbsp. honey or sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cups raspberries
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 pound strawberries or other berries, hulled and sliced

Preparation

1. Put ovenproof 12-in. pan or 9- by 13-in. pan in oven and preheat oven to 425°. Whisk eggs, 1/4 cup honey or sugar, and the zest in a medium bowl. Add salt, flour, and 1/4 cup milk and stir until smooth, then add in remaining milk.
2. Mash raspberries.
3. Remove pan from oven; add butter and swirl until melted. Pour in batter. Pour mashed raspberries over batter in wide ribbons. Reduce heat to 400° and bake pancake until golden, 30 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes to cool and firm up (pancake will fall).
4. Combine strawberries and remaining honey or sugar; let stand at least 10 minutes. Add honey to taste. Spoon fruit mixture over pancake. Cut pancake into wedges and serve.

LOL! I haven't made those in a long time. Funny how you get in a groove (rut) and forget about things you used to cook. Yours looks delish!

Thanks Manuela! I know EXACTLY what you mean about being in a groove/rut. This was a nice excuse to get out of it.
