Need a special weekend breakfast that won’t ruin your diet plan for the week (but tastes like it does…) ? This delicious oven pancake can be served with your favorite fruit; I use it with apples in the winter, berries in the spring, and peaches in the summer. If you don’t like amaretto, you can substitute either Triple sec or sugar. I serve this with turkey sausage patties; just add seasonings to ground turkey and brown in a non-stick skillet.
2 pints strawberries
1 Tbsp. amaretto liqueur (or sugar)
3 Tbsp. butter
6 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. sugar
6 Tbsp. milk
Vanilla low-fat yogurt, or Greek-style yogurt
Wash, hull, and cut strawberries into quarters lengthwise. Place in shallow bowl; add sugar or amaretto. Let sit while you make the pancake, stirring occasionally.
Heat oven to 425⁰. Put butter in large cast iron skillet; place in oven to melt butter and heat skillet. In a medium bowl, beat eggs with whisk. Add flour,
milk, and sugar. Beat just until smooth. Tilt skillet to coat bottom with butter. Pour batter into hot skillet and return to oven. Bake at 425⁰ about 15 minutes, until puffed and golden.
Cut pancake into slices and top with strawberries. Serve with vanilla yogurt or Greek-style yogurt if desired. Serves 4.
