Quick & Easy Puff Pancake Recipe

It seems thereís always a guest or two during the holidays, and while itís not always possible to prepare a lavish breakfast every morning, the following Austrian Puff Pancake is quick to put together Ė just a few common ingredients whizzed in the blender - and bakes while family members and guests are getting ready for the day. The guests will think itís quite lavish, and they donít need to know that itís as easy as it is. Theyíll find out though when they ask for the recipe, and after tasting this, youíll know thatís a given.
Austrian Puff Pancake is great paired with bacon, which can bake alongside the pancake (put the bacon on a broiler pan and the bacon fat melts through). Easiest toppings for this custard-like pancake are syrup or jam, but it is also great with fresh fruit. Once out of the oven, the pancake will deflate, so serve it immediately; it tastes the same, however, whether puffed or deflated.
