These have been a favorite of my husband's since high school. So, when I came across this version with berries in it, I was excited! They have become the new favorite in our house and are requested daily! They are quick and easy and you can make them with or without berries! We like ours with powdered sugar and syrup.
Puffy Pancakes with Berries
3 T butter
3/4 cup flour
1/4 t salt
1 cup milk
1 t vanilla
1 cup berries (fresh or frozen blueberries, raspberries or blackberries or a combination)
Preheat oven to 450. Once it is hot, place better in a cast iron pan (or just an oven safe glass pan) and place it in the oven to heat up and melt the butter.
Combine the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl and whisk together. In a separate bowl combine the eggs, milk and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk until smooth.
Remove the hot pan from the over (the butter should be bubbly, but not burned). Pour the batter into the hot pan and then add the berries. Return the pan to the oven and cook for 12-15 minutes until nicely browned and puffy around the edges.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut into pieces and serve with syrup.
