This is just to say that the semester is over. OVER, I tell you. Ok, I still have to finish some grading, but I don't have to see my students anymore (which is sometimes a very good thing) and soon, very soon I will have three luscious work-free weeks. But for now, even though I'm still technically working, I can do so in my pjs and my slippers while sipping coffee and eating a tasty breakfast. And since it is the end of the semester, I deserve a breakfast that is both tasty and fattening like the puffy pancake. You may call this pancake by some other name, but in my childhood it was always called the puffy pancake and so it will remain. Here's the recipe in case you want to join my in a celebratory breakfast.
1/2 cup flour
1/c cup milk
1/4 cup butter
Heat oven to 425. Melt butter in a 9-inch pie pan (you may be tempted to cut down on the butter, but don't. Remember, this is a celebratory pancake). While the butter is melting, whisk together remaining ingredients. Pour the batter into the butter and bake for 20 minutes. Once it comes out of the oven, sprinkle the pancake with powdered sugar. Just to fool yourself that this breakfast is healthy, serve with fruit.
