Honey Cloud Pancake

Like pancakes? Like eggs? Like fruit? Trust me, you're gonna want to make this.

I’m leavin’ on a jet plane. Don’t know when I’ll be back again. Wait. Nevermind, yes I do. Next Saturday, to be exact.

For seven straight days I’ll be soaking up the sun on Anna Maria Island on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida. I cannot wait to be there. I am a bit of a sun-bathing extraordinaire. Don’t worry, I’m not going to use SPF 4 tanning oil. I’m not.

Our flight doesn’t leave until later so I had time to whip up this fabulous breakfast. Yea. That’s funny. I’ve barely finished packing!

I did make this last weekend, though, and it was Uh. Maze. Ing.

Honey Cloud Pancake
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 2-4
 

Ingredients
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • ½ cup warmed milk (I used 1%)
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A couple handfuls of soft fruit (strawberries, blueberries, bananas)
  • Cooking spray
  • Honey

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 385 degrees F.
  2. Spray a 10.5 inch oven proof pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl beat the egg whites until peaks form.
  4. In a larger bowl, gently beat the whole eggs with flour, salt, honey, and vanilla.
  5. Whisk in the warm milk and then gently fold the egg whites into the batter.
  6. Heat the prepared pan on the stove over medium heat.
  7. Pour the batter in and cook for a few minutes until the edges just begin to set.
  8. Layer your fruit on top and then transfer the pan to the oven.
  9. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until puffed up and golden.
  10. Drizzle with honey (or maple syrup if you prefer. Uh, we may have used both.)

Notes
I loved the flavor of the bananas in this but they turned brown immediately. If you don’t mind ugly breakfast than don’t worry about it. Next time I make this I’ll press the banana slices into the batter a bit so that they don’t show. I’m fussy like that.

 

Bakes up super light and fluffy. Kinda like, I don't know, a cloud?

I was afraid to make this at first because I thought it was going to be a sticky mess in the pan. I’m really glad took the risk because it lifted out beautifully and it’s off-the-hook good. Light, eggy and sweet, it’s like a cross between a pancake and a Dutch baby. I’m definitely trying this with fresh, juicy peaches when they are in season.

I’m so glad I found this recipe (which I barely altered, except to double it) at Things We Make. Make sure you check it out because her pictures are so much better than mine and she says cute British words like “hob”.

And, I’m off. But don’t fret, I’m not going to leave you totally in the lurch. I’ll have a fabulous guest blogger or two checking in throughout the week so plan on stopping by to see what they make. I know I’m excited!

Skillet dishes like this just make me smile…and a pancake on top of it puts this skillet dish high up there in skillet dish land! Looks fabulous. I hope you have a relaxing vacation – so jealous that you get to soak up some rays and hang by the pretty blue water. Happy Easter and have fun!

Have a wonderful trip! These sound delicious. My hubby is totaly against fruit in pancakes, so I may have to make them this way for the little guy and I, and make some more with chocolate chips or something.

I was going to say it looks kind of like a Dutch baby, but you beat me to it! Another nice weekend brunch idea– we made the nutella-banana-French toast with your inspiration, as you know. Enjoy your trip!

I hope you have a great trip! And oh my gosh, this pancake looks so good! I’ve never seen something like this before, but since I love Dutch babies (that always sounds so wrong), I’m intrigued…

Pancakes make the perfect breakfast in my book! If I would have not stuffed myself with your poached eggs, I would try this straight away

I love honey cloud pancakes. The texture is light and fluffy.
I suggest making this once before making for a guest ,to work out any kinks. I didn’t have a oven safe frying pan so I transferred to a baking dish. A bit of a mess but tastes good all the same. I will buy a oven safe pan just for this recipe, I think it’s one of my favourites!!
