Aunt Edith's Baked Pancake Recipe

"MY AUNT made a mighty breakfast that revolved around 'The Big Pancake'. I always enjoyed watching as she poured the batter into her huge iron skillet, then baked the confection to perfection in the oven. "The delicious result defied description! It was a sort of combination pancake, waffle and cruller. "Sprinkled with powdered sugar and garnished with wedges of lemon, this crispy, golden-brown treat—which covered a dinner plate!—was as delightful to the eye as it was to the palate."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:4-6 servings


  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • Confectioners' sugar
  • Lemon wedges


  • 1. In a bowl, beat eggs until very light. Add salt, flour and milk; beat well. Thoroughly rub bottom and sides of a 10-in. cast-iron or heavy skillet with butter. Pour batter into skillet. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° and bake 5 minutes more or until set. Remove pancake from skillet and place on a large hot platter. Dust with confectioners' sugar and garnish with lemon. Serve immediately. Yield: 4-6 servings.

"I followed the recipe, with the exception of the confectioners' sugar on top. It was good, but I think next time I will follow LARJO's suggestion and add some vanilla."

"Our Girl Scout Troop made this on a weekend camping trip. It was amazing! We doubled the recipe and made it in a large cast iron skillet. We served with pie filling and powdered sugar! It was a big hit! easy enough for the 12 - 13 year old girls to prepare by themselves and delicious for girls and adults. We served with bacon!!!"
