    from "Dad's Own Cookbook" by Bob Sloan

    This puffed pancake was one of the few foods my Dad made that we considered gourmet. It's a foolproof, impressive recipe.

    Serves four

    6 eggs
    1 1/2 cups milk
    1 cup unbleached flour
    3 tablespoons granulated sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter or margarine
    Jam, syrup, or honey, for serving

    12-inch cast-iron or oven-proof skillet

    1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
    2.In a blender on medium speed, mix together the eggs, milk, flour, granulated sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon, until just combined, about 15 seconds. The batter should be a bit lumpy.
    3.Melt the butter or margarine in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet by putting it in the hot oven for about 30 seconds.
    4.Remove the skillet form the oven, spread the butter to coat the bottom and sides of the skillet, and pour in the batter. Return the skillet to the center oven rack and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the pancake is puffed and lightly browned. (Do not check before 17 minutes have passed, and close the oven door slowly and carefully after checking.)
    5.Cut into wedges and serve immediately with jam, syrup, or honey.
    Variations The puffed pancake is nice accompanied by fresh slices of fruit, such as apples, bananas, berries, or peaches. If you serve apples, sauté them in a tablespoon of butter over medium heat for a few minutes while the pancake is cooking.
    • If the butter turns brown, it has burned and is unusable. Pour it out, wipe out your pan, and start again.
    • The pan must be exactly 12 inches across or the pancake will not puff.
    • If you don't have a blender, use a hand mixer or whisk, or pulse briefly in a food processor.
