T&C VIII : Baked Pancake
Taste & Create, what it’s all about: community, sharing, tasting, and blogging.This is a gathering point for the food-blogger community to come and have their recipes tested by their peers.
This is my first time participated in the event. And my partner is Mindy of The Bad Girl's Kitchen. When I visited her blog in the very first time, I read so many wonderful recipes. I got confuse, which one I will choose. But then I decided, to pick a recipe for breakfast time. Since sometimes I had no idea what to make when it comes to breakfast meal.
Thanks for the idea, Min. Never thought before, you can bake your pancake instead of fry the cake. It was so easy to make. My children really love it. The texture is like flan but more solid and dryer than flan too. Hahaha..it's hard to describe. And the pancake is taller in the oven, then flattens after you remove it from the pan, and should have been golden brown in spots. Simple idea in the morning yet delectable.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place 2-1/2 Tablespoons butter in 9-inch glass pie pan and melt in oven.
In blender or food processor, combine:
1-1/4 cup milk
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Process until smooth.
Remove pie pan from oven and increase temperature to 425 degrees. Pour batter into pie pan and return to oven. Bake 20 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees and bake 8 to 10 minutes longer. Invert on serving platter. (This part is a bit tricky, to be honest. You will most likely need a knife to loosen the edges, place the serving platter upside down on top of the pancake and invert, then use your knife to loosen the bottom as you are hovering the hot pie pan over the serving platter with oven mitts because it never just comes right out. It's possible you may need to assistance of another person until you get the hang of it. That's what I did.)
Sprinkle with powdered sugar, cut into four or more wedges and serve with fresh berries and warm maple syrup on the side. Of course a true cowboy will ask for whipped cream, so you should be sure to have some of that handy as well.
