  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • Garnish: confectioners’ sugar, maple syrup, or apple butter


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a medium bowl, sift together flour and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and milk in a bowl until just combined. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, then stir until just blended.

In a heavy 12-inch oven-safe skillet, melt butter until hot and frothy. Pour batter into skillet and transfer quickly to oven. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown and puffed. Do not open oven during baking. Serve immediately, topped with confectioners’ sugar, maple syrup, or apple butter.

    My family liked this pancake. My husband liked it the most and it was very easy to make.

    Kids & grandkids came for the weekend so we tried it. So simple, tastes like French toast, sides were approximately 3-4″ high. Would make again.

    Served this with a fried apple sauce and German sausages for brunch. Very easy and very tasty. We live at an altitude of 8,000 feet in the Rocky Mountains and did not need to make altitude adjustments.

    I have been making this recipe for 10 years and my family can’t get enough of it. It is quick and easy enough for the kids and even my husband to make.

    This tasted better than the one I order at a restaurant that is famous for making them!
