Puff the Magic Pancake
4 tsp. butter
1/2 cup milk
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.
