Puffy Pancake (my husband’s favorite breakfast)

Puffy Pancake

We have eaten this for almost every Saturday-morning breakfast since we have been married. I used to make it, but now Chris loves it so much, it has become his specialty. He and the boys often make it for dinner if I am out of the house. More power to ya, babe!

NOTE: Since both boys love it too, we double the recipe and bake it in a glass 9×13 pan.

Prep: 10 Minutes |  Bake: 20 Minutes | Oven: 400


  • 2 T Butter
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 C Gluten-Free Flour blend
  • 1/2 C Milk
  • 1/4 t Salt


  1. Put Butter in Pie Plate and let melt in oven for 3-5 minutes (Until melted, hot and sizzly –but not browned.)
  2. Meanwhile, for batter, beat eggs with wire whisk until combined. Add remaining ingredients and beat until smooth.
  3. Pour immediately into hot pan.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until puffed and golden brown – like picture above.
  5. Topping options:
      • Hot Cinnamon Applesauce (My favorite)
      • Fresh Fruit and Whipped Cream
      • Berries and Whipped Cream or Powdered Sugar
      • Cinnamon and Sugar
      • Powdered Sugar (Chris’s favorite)

    1. Definitely! Whenever I cook something really good, I always think, “Now if I make this for Derek and Kari, how could I make it vegetarian?” So in case you wondered, the kitchen is ready for ya!

  1. I made the Puffy Pancake this weekend. It puffed up like a taco salad shell or a big top hat then deflated. I tried different toppings from applesauce, to blackberry jelly and apricot jelly (all without sugar). All were, but my favorite is applesauce. Thanks for the recipes. PS I made brisket in the crockpot too and it was fantastic. Keep them coming.

  2. My husband and I really liked it…my kids were not big fans though:( It kinda reminded me of french toast..with the eggy texture. I would also add the toppings of Nutella and peanut butter too!

  3. I make this at LEAST once a week now! My 2 year old nephew ate a whole one himself! He loves it with powdered sugar. I eat mine plain, but Chris (my husband) loves it with powdered sugar and maple syrup!
