I love to eat these! They are warm and light, yet very filling. Great on cold mornings. This recipe is from my great grandmother. Serve with warm maple syrup and wedges of lemon.

I made this two days in a row; first day flat, second day magic! Here were my changes: Both days: 1 tsp vanilla instead of nutmeg Second day: I warmed the eggs in a glasso of hot water before using, microwaved the milk for about 20 seconds. Also I made sure the pan was real hot when I put it in(I used a 9inch round cake pan). Also, I added about 5 minutes cooking time at the end, temp turned down to 350. Other than these temperature adjustments, all ingredients were the same, and the second day it turned out so much fluffier. Coming out of the pan- such a difference. Hopefully this helps others like me who don't get the rise they are looking for.

This recipe is kind of complicated and can easily be simplified... Skip the skillet business and use a 9x13 baking dish. Heat your oven to 425 F degrees. Chop 1/3 cup butter up into your baking dish and let melt in your preheated oven. Once all of the butter has melted, take baking dish out and pour in batter, DO NOT STIR OR MIX just let it be. Bake for 20-25 minutes and voila!

Take out the nutmeg and this recipe is IDENTICAL to the "Puffy Oven Pancake" recipe in the Betty Crocker cookbook - every last measurement is the same. That aside, I love these! My favorite way to make this is to peel and slice an apple, and spread the slices out on the bottom of the pan (I use a 9" pyrex pie pan, melt the butter in it in the oven). Sprinkle the apple slices with a little cinnamon and nutmeg, then pour in the batter. After it's done baking, flip it out on a plate and serve. YUM! Oh, sidenote - bake it more like 1/2 hour at 400 and it won't be so custard-y, more like a cross between eggs and a pancake.
