Oven baked puffy pancakes are delicious and easy to make. Mix all of the ingredients together and stick in the oven to let bake! 

By special request this morning I made Puffy Pancakes.

Lover Boy grew up eating all types of varieties of Puffy Pancakes…me, I had never heard of them until Scott made them for us when we were visiting in Ohio back in 2007. I instantly fell in love with them! Over the years I’ve tried several different recipes – some good some bad. Most of the recipes call for a cast iron pan as well – I have a couple cast iron pans but they are all in our camping bins. And…that is where they are to stay, they’re boring looking. (yes, we have a full fledge kitchen in terms of supplies when it comes to camping.)

So for Christmas I asked for a pretty fun colored cast iron pan. My parents bought me these…can you say awesome!?!?!

1. I love the color! 2. I love the oval skillet!! It’s supposed to be perfect for cooking fish!

This morning I made the Puffy Pancakes in the circle skillet.

Heat 2tbs of butter in your skillet in the oven. When the butter is melted take it out and pour in the batter. Put back in the oven and bake until golden brown (in my oven it took 18 minutes)

  1. I love making these, too, especially in the summer with fresh peaches, blueberries and powdered sugar! Yummy!

  2. First your pans are awesome!! LOVE them. And the pancakes look delish! I have never tried them in a pan like that. I always do them in a casaroll dish. Next time I will have to try them with fruit (that I haven’t tried). Thanks for linking up to our Link it up Thursday Party.:)
