Serves 3 - 4 people


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 180 ml warm milk
  • 90 g all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

For serving:

  • Butter
  • Fresh berries
  • Powdered sugar


Step 1

Prepare to bake - Preheat oven to 200°C. Add butter to a large ovenproof skillet and place in oven until butter begins to sizzle.

Step 2

Meanwhile, mix the batter - In a medium bowl, beat eggs vigorously. Add milk and continue beating for about 1 minute. Add in the flour, sugar, vanilla, and salt and continue beating vigorously to remove all lumps.

Step 3

Make the pancake - Remove skillet from oven and swirl to coat evenly with butter. Pour batter in hot pan and bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes, until pancake puffs in the center and is beautifully browned around the edges. 

Step 4

Serve and enjoy - Garnish with a pat of butter, fresh berries, and a generous dusting of powdered sugar. Serve warm.



Smooth Operator

To create a silky, smooth batter in seconds, mix ingredients in a blender or food processor. Quickly clean blender by filling halfway with hot water, adding a drop of dish soap, and blending for 10 seconds. A quick rinse and you’re done!

For an even dusting of powdered sugar, use a sugar shaker, sifter, or sieve. Even a tea strainer will do in a pinch.
