From the Kitchen of Kristin Sumption
Preheat oven and 9inch cake pan at 450 degrees
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
dash of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons butter
Beat together all the ingredients, except the butter, all at once. The more air you beat into the pancake batter the puffier it will be. When the oven and pan have been preheated toss the 2 tablespoons of butter into the pan and return it to the oven. Once the butter is melted and bubbling pour the batter slowly into the center of the pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown and deliciously puffy!
Serve with powdered sugar and lemon juice :)
This makes 1 pancake that could easily serve two people. I usually make three of them since my boys love them so much. If you make more than one, you must make the batters in separate bowls, it's the only way they will all turn out correctly. Bummer it makes more dishes but its so worth it!
Another option is to leave out the vanilla and serve it as a savory dish with a french stew or something similar! Yum!
