A Brazen Beefcakes Bouffant Brunch

So busy last night that you overslept breakfast? Throw this together for a fluffed up brunch dish. It will collapse when removed from oven but still tastes great with just a drizzle of Maple syrup. Whether you're craving something egg-y or something sweet, these quick, hearty nothings are perfect accomplices for the Mimosas.
    • 4 eggs
    • 2/3 cup milk
    • 2/3 cup flour
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ cup butter 




    • Melt butter in 9 by 9 pan in 425° oven.
    • Meanwhile place all ingredients in a big bowl and whisk together until blended well – lumps are OK..

    • Leave pan in oven with butter and pour batter over butter.
    • Carefully close oven and cook 15-20 minutes.
    • Pancake should rise up, double in height and get golden brown. Make sure you have room in your oven for this to rise. For instance if there is a rack above it the mix will rise up through the rack and be nearly impossible to remove cleanly. When you take it out of the oven it will fall a little. 

=========== === === ==
The trick to this rising, is to make certain that you preheat the oven for 10 minutes and the oven is very hot when you put the pan in..

For this presentation, slave opened a can of sliced peaches, drained and added ½ cup of brown sugar and ½ cup of white sugar. Also 2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. This was heated over a medium-low heat. When the peaches were softened well, 1 tablespoon of cornstarch was mixed with ¼ cup water and blended into the fruit to thicken into a nice syrup.

Some softened NO-Fat Cream Cheese Spread was spooned onto the egg – puff and it was topped with the fruit mixture.

However there is almost no end to the variations you can do with this brunch basic.

It is like Yorkshire puddings. I always fry up some apples and maple syrup to serve on top.
This is also a German pancake, or pannekoeken. Love it! I add ham or bacon for a more filling meal. Love it as written with syrup or jam!
Top with no-fat Greek style yogurt and just about any favorite fruit!

We like these a lot. I don't have a blender, but I used an electric hand mixer and beat until smooth, and it puffed up just fine in the oven. I also used whole wheat flour, and I sprinkle a little cinnamon and honey on top when they're done. Delish!
GO DECADENT! Serve with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of hot fudge all over the top!

Master Indy really looks forward to His Sunday Brunch, or is it the Mimosas?
