Puff Pancake

A puff pancake is very easy to make and so delicious.  All you  need is some butter, flour, eggs, milk, spices, and sugar.  I spice my pancake with nutmeg, cinnamon and grated lemon zest.  Serve the pancake with a dusting of confectioners sugar, pour maple syrup over it or fill it with your favorite fruit.  The choice is yours.    I usually fill mine with Roasted Blackberry Sauce or pie filling I have on hand.

  1. I don't know why I didn't think of it before, I love pancakes, I hate frying them, but your recipe sorts it all out. Thanks for posting! Wishing you all the best.

    1. This recipe is simple and you get to eat some of the pancake. When I fry pancakes, they are gone before I get a chance to eat any. Nice hearing from you:-)

  2. I've only had puffed pancakes with apple, but your roasted blackberries sauce looks like a fabulous option! YUM!

    1. Thank you, Lizzy for the nice comment. Have a great day:)
