For people like me, who can't make good pancakes, this recipe is perfect. Everything is cooked in the oven in one single skillet, giving the plus of easy clean up. Serve with maple syrup.

  • Place the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, sugar, salt, and flour into a blender. Pulse until no dry lumps remain in the batter. Melt the butter in an 8-inch, cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Pour in the batter, and drop in the strawberries.

  • Place the skillet into the oven, and bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.

Variations

Cinnamon: add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter. Skip strawberries.

Apple: slice 1/2 an apple and cook it on the melted butter until lightly golden. You may add a pinch of cinnamon to it. Skip strawberries.

Blueberry: use 1/2 cup of blueberries instead of strawberries.

Banana: add 1 sliced banana to the melted butter and cook it until golden, but still firm. You may add a pinch of cinnamon to it. Skip strawberries.

Chocolate chip: add 1/2 cup of your favorite chocolate chip to the batter in the skillet. Skip strawberries.

Chocolate: add 1 tablespoon of cocoa to the batter.

Plain: skip strawberries and top baked pancake with a squeeze of lemon juice and powdered sugar.

I used a mixture of strawberries and raspberries because I only had about a half cup of each. I used whole wheat white flour and buttermilk instead of whole milk. I used a round cake pan instead of a skillet because I don't have a cast iron skillet. This was really easy to make with my oldest son and when it was done, I let it cool for a couple minutes, then flipped it out and cut it into pieces with a pizza cutter. My kids had this with a little butter and homemade freezer jam. Huge hit! Read More

Awesome recipe! I have made many of the variations and they have turned out great too. I will say that I like this recipe best with just two eggs. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Simple recipe to follow although I made a few tweaks. Instead of 1/4 c sugar I used 2 TBSP agave syrup which made this sweet enough. I used a gluten-free baking mix instead of flour. I also added (surprise) a few mint leaves to the blender my new fave flavor combo of strawberry/mint. I didn't have whole milk so I used 1/2 c strawberry honey yogurt and 1/4 c 2% milk. The consistency is similar to a ricotta cheesecake so I may try making it with ricotta instead of yogurt next time and increase the sweetness. Overall I thought it was simple and yummy. Read More

I love this recipe! So easy on a lazy Sunday morning! I have one suggestion if making with strawberries try using 1/4 tsp vanilla and 1/4 tsp almond extract. The almond really complements strawberries. Read More

If you are looking for a delicious and easy breakfast you may want to try this recipe. No need to heat up the pan I just put the butter in the skillet and put it in the oven while it was preheating until the butter was melted. I also added extra strawberries. Some of us preferred it served with real maple syrup while others preferred it with whipped cream. However it was served everyone loved it. This made a tasty and attractive breakfast. Read More

LOVE this recipe. I followed the recipe to a T the first time and give it 5 stars. I have since modified it using coconut oil instead of butter since we don't do much dairy and I also throw in blueberries in addition to strawberries. I like it with the 3 eggs as it seems almost custardy. I double the recipe and bake it in a 9x13 pan. Any leftovers can be eaten cold straight from the fridge almost like a dessert. Can't wait to try a savory version as others have suggested (no sugar and cheese added). Very versatile recipe. Read More
