Puffed Oven Pancake with Summer Fruit
Makes 4 to 6 servings
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/3 cup flour
- 3 eggs
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 yellow or white peach pitted and sliced
- 1 cup pitted, halved California Bing Cherries
- Confectioners' sugar
Preheat oven to 425°F. Mix milk, flour, eggs, sugar and extract in a blender or in a large bowl with a whisk until well mixed. Place butter in a 9 or 10-inch frying pan (or ovenproof sauté pan). Place pan in hot oven to melt butter. When melted, remove pan with an oven mitt and tilt to coat bottom and sides with butter. Spread fruit in pan and pour egg mixture over fruit. Immediately return to oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until puffed and golden. Using mitt, remove from oven and sift confectioners' sugar over pancake. Cut into wedges and serve.
