Skillet Pancake with Strawberry Recipe:
makes one 8 inch skillet
You will need:
3 large eggs
3/4 cup whole milk
1/2 cup of flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/4 cup of sugar
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1 cup of strawberries, sliced
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Mix all ingredients except for butter and strawberries in a blender. Make sure the flour is incorporated, scraping down the sides of the blender if necessary.
Melt the butter in a oven-proof skillet (I like using cast iron). Add the batter and the sliced strawberries. Transfer skillet to hot oven and bake until puffed and golden, 20-25 minutes.
Serve immediately with maple syrup.
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 favourite 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.
