Easy puffed oven pancakes

Puffed oven pancakes, also known as german pancakes, are a staple in our house.  We make them at least a couple of times a week.  They are easy to make, tasty, and there are so many options for toppings.  They puff up and climb up the sides of your pan when they are done, but deflate pretty quickly.  You can top them with powdered sugar, syrup, banana slices, or you can saute apples in a bit of butter and cinnamon.  In the Summer when we have fresh berries, I like to slice up strawberries and blueberries too!

Here is the recipe:

Turn oven to 400 degrees, place two tablespoons of butter in an ovenproof skillet or I just use my 8x8 square Pyrex pan.  Let the butter melt, takes a couple of minutes, and take out the pan.  In the meantime you can prepare the batter.  In a medium bowl, whisk together three eggs and 1/2 cup flour.  It may be a little lumpy, but that's okay, then slowly whisk in 1/2 cup milk.  Add 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon.  Pour into hot pan and bake for about 20 minutes or until puffed and well browned.
