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.
