Strawberry Puff Pancake

I’ve cut this recipe to 2 eggs and 1/2 cup milk for my husband and me, and it works just fine. It’s yummy with strawberry or blueberry topping. You could even garnish it with whipped topping for a light dessert. —Brenda Morton, Hale Center, Texas

    I prepared this tonight and it was delicious. I did use Splenda for the sugar. It was a tad bland so next time I will add more cinnamon and maybe more vanilla. However, we loved it and cleaned our plates. Perfect for two people. I recommend this recipe.Volunteer Field Editor

    Very similar to an Apple Pancake but I do prefer the strawberries. Thanks for the inspiration.

    This was very good and really easy. I used fresh sliced strawberries instead of making the sauce.

    I prepared this for my husband and I when we wanted a really nice breakfast and it was a winner - I added a few fresh strawberries to the top and with the dusting of powdered sugar it was to die for -a real warmer

    Don't know why the stars didn't show up with my review.

    This was way too thick for a 9 inch pie plate. Perhaps a 10 inch would work better, but even after cooking it longer than stated this was still gooey and tasted under-done.

    This puff pancake was a hit when I made it. It was buttery and fluffy, with a nice sweetness added with the strawberries. A nice alternative to the traditional pancake.

    This has become a favorite in our house. We've used canned fruit, frozen fruit, etc. We love it.
