Author Notes

One of the reasons I like this "pancake" is because is calls for less flower and more eggs than regular pancakes. It's a fun way to get some eggs into your diet.

I have used both sprouted wheat and white flour for this recipe - both work well. Of course the sprouted flour will be less light and airy, but I'm willing to compromise a bit for the added nutrients.

Adapted from a recipe from Always With Butter —Erica Lea | Buttered Side Up

What You'll Need
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sprouted wheat flour or organic all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 cup blueberries, frozen or fresh
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F (218 C). Butter a 12-inch cast iron skillet.
  2. Put the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract into a blender and blend until smooth (you can also do this in a bowl with a whisk). Sift in the flour, salt, and cinnamon; blend until smooth. Add the butter and blend.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared skillet. Sprinkle the blueberries on top. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes. Lower the oven temperature to 325 and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve hot with lots of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup or a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

I made this in a 10" cast iron pan at 425 for 15 minutes and 325 for 2 minutes because I was scared of the edges burning. I probably underbaked it a hair, but it turned out delicious. One of my friends described it as "french toasty". I'd definitely make it again.

Thank you for your review, Emily! I know what your friend meant by "french toasty" - haha!
