Strawberry Puffed Pancakes

Strawberry Puffed Pancakes is one of our family’s favorite breakfast treats!  You probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already.
Flour, Sugar, Salt, Eggs, Milk, and Butter.  {For toppings the Puffed Pancakes, we prefer adding strawberries, sour cream, brown sugar and syrup}.  Yes, sweet!  This tasty treat is definitely not your everyday breakfast!  The kids SQUEAL with excitement when its served!
Place a 1/4 cup butter {that’s half of a stick} inside a pie plate and allow the butter to melt as the oven is preheating to 425.  Keep an eye on it because butter does burn.
Beat 3 eggs, 1 1/2 cup of milk, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of salt until will mixed.  Add 1 cup of flour* and continue mixing until combined.
By the time you’ve finished mixing the flour, the butter in the oven should be melted.  Pour the batter directly over the melted butter and place it back into the oven for 20 minutes or until brown.  The center should not be runny when you take it out of the oven.
Serve with your favorite toppings.  We layer the toppings like this: Sour Cream, Strawberries, Brown Sugar and then a dot of syrup!  Their mouths start watering even before their first bite!  And I double the recipe because having it again the next morning is like putting a cherry on top of a sundae!!!
When in season, I buy fresh strawberries, but if not, I but a pint size strawberry carton found in the freezer section of grocery stores and microwave to defrost before serving.
Brings back memories OLD and NEW.  This was my favorite breakfast growing up and it makes me so happy that it’s my children’s favorite breakfast, too!  It even trumps donuts!
And this is what it looks like when it’s being enjoyed!

*I used to use 3/4 cup of flour, but thickening it a bit helps keep my boys full longer so now I add 1 cup of flour and prefer it this way!
