Weekend Brekkie: Baked Puff with Apple Topping 6/12/2010

I found a new recipe for the baked pancake (or puff) we love making. You can see a  recipe similar to what I usually make here.
The following one is much more economical and just as tasty.

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar for dusting


  1. Place a 10 inch cast iron skillet inside oven and preheat oven to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, beat eggs with a whisk until light. Add milk and stir. Gradually whisk in flour, nutmeg and salt.
  3. Remove skillet from oven and reduce oven heat to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt butter in hot skillet so that inside of skillet is completely coated with butter. Pour all the batter in the skillet and return skillet to oven.
  4. Bake until puffed and lightly browned, about 12 minutes. Remove promptly and sprinkle with powdered sugar. 

For a change, I chopped up an apple and browned the cubes in butter, adding a little bit of brown sugar, thickened the mix with a bit of cornstarch and a touch of vinegar and voila! A thick, pleasantly sweet, slightly tart apple topping that was a huge hit :)

Yum. Cut and serve while it's hot. Happy Weekend, people!
