Directions for how to make this Puffed Pancake
Baker's Note: If you do not have a cast iron pan, you can easily make this in a 9-10" pie plate or similar baking dish.
Start by preheating your oven to 400. Place your butter into a larger 10" cast iron skillet and heat it for 3-4 minutes or until the butter is melted. Swirl your pan around to spread the melted butter evenly along the bottom of the pan.
Next we are going to add our eggs to a mixing bowl and whisk the eggs together.
Now we are going to add the flour, milk and salt to the mixing bowl.
Whisk them together until the egg mixture is smooth.
Pour your puffed pancake batter into your hot skillet and then place in the oven.
Bake your puffed pancake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the pancakes are puffy and lightly browned.
Remove your Puffed pancake from the oven and you will see that the pancake will quickly flatten out. While the puffed pancake is still hot, sprinkle it with powdered sugar.
