Puff the Magic Pancake, truly lives up to it’s name right when it comes out of the oven. It is golden brown, light and fluffy. Just like a souffle when it hits the air it deflates a little. So hence the photo. It does not however take away the incredible taste of this delectable breakfast dish! My best friend Mary shared this recipe with me, if you know Mary, then you realize if she likes this for breakfast, it has to be fabulous. Breakfast is Mary’s favorite meal of the day. I’ve never known anyone who is so passionate about a morning meal! As most of you know, something has come to my attention lately about my blog. I have worked so hard on this and I hope I won’t have to change anything about it. The name of my blog came to me when our boys were thinking about leaving for college and I didn’t have a passion or know what to do with my time, now that basically being a Mother was over, no more driving or picking up from school, no more parties with friends coming and going. No more Mom, will you make me something to eat? I was so proud of the name I came up with and the art work that Cortni did for me. I thought the name was perfect, Empty Nest Two Plates Full. The Empty Nest being exactly what it implies, and the Two plates Full being Pete and I dining alone. I had a web developer come to my home and set up the whole blog. We both worked very hard to get it where we wanted it to be and EmptyNesttwoplatesfull.com was born! I can’t believe someone would want me to change that. I am in no way making money on this site. They want me to drop the Two Plates Full. We will see what happens and I will keep you all informed. You all know I’m a very honest and kind person and would never want to cause anyone any problems. For now I will be checking out all my options and I will keep you all in the loop. Thanks for reading, I feel very sad today:( Stacey

Puff Pancakes:

4 tsp butter

1/2 cup whole milk

2 eggs

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup flour

1/4 tsp. salt

Pinch of ground nutmeg

2 tsp. powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Spray four custard cups with nonstick cooking spray and place on a cookie sheet. Place 1 tsp of butter in each cup, then place the cookie sheet in the oven for five minutes to melt the butter to a sizzling point. Remove from oven and set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, whisk milk, eggs, and vanilla. Add flour, salt and nutmeg, whisking to blend into a smooth batter. Ladle equal amounts of batter into each of the cups then return to the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Pancakes will puff during baking. Remove cookie sheet from oven, custard cups will be very hot. Pancakes may be removed from cups and placed on a plate or served in the custard cups, I served them in the cups. Garnish each pancake by sprinkling with 1/2 tsp of powdered sugar. Serve with maple syrup. Makes 4 puffed pancakes.
