Puffy Pancake


3 eggs

2 cups milk, I use 1%

1/4 cup honey

3/4 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

3  tablespoons butter

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.


In a large bowl, whisk eggs and milk together.

Whisk in honey, flour, salt, and vanilla until smooth.

Melt butter in a 9-inch iron skillet until it sizzles.  Pour the batter into the pan while it is hot.

Set it into the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.  Serve with fresh berries, stone fruits, or compote.
