Old-World Puff Pancake

 Old-World Puff Pancake
MY MOM told me her mother-in-law showed her how to make this dish, which became popular during the Depression, on their "get acquainted" visit in 1927. At that time, cooks measured ingredients as pinches, dashes and dibs. But through the years, accurate amounts were noted. My wife and I continue to enjoy this dish today, particularly for brunch. -Auton Miller, Piney Flats, Tennessee
