Puff Pancake from Balancing Beauty & Bedlam Recipe Review



When I first saw this puff pancake recipe posted from Balancing Beauty and Bedlam I REALLY couldn’t wait to try it for my family. I was especially thinking about making it as a new Christmas morning breakfast instead of store bought cinnamon buns they still love. I have already made it twice since I first saw it posted with a few tweaks to the recipe.The first time I made it, it was quite thin as seen above in this picture, so the second time I doubled everything and we liked it better because its a bit more substantial.

Eat it as is or add some fruit on top, honey, maple syrup or even whipped cream if you want! I used my fabulous Cuisinart blender I’ve had for 10 years which is still going strong, dumped all ingredients in and it was ready in 2 minutes to be baked!

This IS an incredibly delicious AND  low point breakfast, but it is high in fat.  Considering Christmas and all we will eat later in the day, I think its a better option than fattening cinnamon buns. Of course, they still want those too which hubby will make for them and I will be making this!

If you’d prefer it thinner like in the first pic, just reduce all ingredients  by half, except the butter. I used my small 8 by 8 glass dish for amounts called for in the original recipe.

  1. [...] started with my original Puff Pancake recipe and was planning on adding some blueberries, but the children requested banana. and. it. was. [...]

  2. [...] The Original Puff Pancake recipe called for 2 tablespoons of butter, so I tried this recipe with only 1 and it worked just perfect with less. Another change from the original is that I used unsweetened almond milk. Usually I won’t make anything with nuts unless its just for me since my boys are allergic. But since they were overnight cubscout camping and it was just me and my daughter (and I was actually out of 1% milk), I used my unsweetened almond milk. I would have used blueberries if the hubby was home since he hates all things raspberries, but since he wasn’t here…… [...]
