Puff the Magic Pancake

This recipe was taken from the cookbook, Sensational Snacks (a child's cookbook).

4 tsp. butter
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp. salt
pinch of nutmeg
2 tsp. powdered sugar

1- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Spray 4 custard cups (or I used aluminum fun shape cups) with nonstick cooking spray and put on a cookie sheet.  Place 1 tsp. butter in the bottom of each cup, then put cookie sheet in the oven for 5 minutes to melt butter to sizzling point.  Remove cookie sheet from oven and set aside.

2-  In a blender, whisk together milk, eggs, and vanilla.  Add flour, salt and nutmeg.  Blend until smooth.

3-  Ladle equal amounts of batter into the four cups, then return to the oven and bake 10-15 minutes.  You will be amazed to see how these pancakes "magically" puff while baking!

4-  Remove cookie sheet from oven.  Be careful!  The cups will be very hot.  Pancakes may be removed from the cups and served on plates.  Sprinkle each one with 1/2 tsp of powdered sugar and top with fresh fruit and/or syrup if you would like.

Tiff's Tips:  I doubled the recipe to make 9 fun shape cups.
