The Best Puff Pancakes

Puff Pancakes are amazing and I fell in love with them from the start.  My family, however, always called them Popeye Pancakes.  I don’t really know why.  All I remember is being very young when my older sister came home with the recipe, from the sleep over she had just had at a girlfriends slumber party.  She raved about them and my siblings and I have been eating them ever since.  I know that most folks call them German Puff Pancakes and that others like to cook them Dutch Oven style but, other than that, I can’t tell you the history behind them because honestly, I’m sorry to say, I’m not really interested. :-p

Baking Puff Pancakes

One of the things you should know about Puff Pancakes is that they shrink down, considerably.  Clearly they get their name from the amount of poof the pancake gets when it puffs up during the baking but, after only a minute out of the oven, the size is drastically cuts in half.  So if you’re wondering what the hell happened to your Puff Pancakes when they deflate, like a flat tire, understand that this is completely normal.

Additions for Puff Pancakes

The great thing about these pancakes is that you can add just about anything you want to them, including fruit or vegetable toppings.  You can even bake them into the Puff Pancakes themselves, if you prefer.  Other options can include Meats like ham, sausage or bacon.  Personally, I usually just prepare mine the way I show you how to do it in the Video Recipe Tutorial, only I usually make a larger batch for the whole family, like the picture above in the Casserole dish.  And this recipe is large enough to bake in a 9×13 Casserole dish, btw.  I like to cut it up into 8 equal servings and serve it with Maple Syrup or my Homemade Berry Syrup.

Other Breakfast and Brunch recipes you might be interested in are my Oreo Waffles, Potato Waffles with Cheese, Crepes with Cherry Topping and my Breakfast Burrito with Chorizo.  I also have an Ultimate Omelette and an Egg Bread Bowl you might want to check out.

The Best Homemade Milk Chocolate

This Homemade Milk Chocolate Recipe is spot on Delicious.  My friends and family have all said that this is as good as any chocolate they’ve ever had.  Words like Truffle and Ghirardelli were thrown around with head nods after biting into these numbers.  So you can trust that this recipe is where it’s at.  Plus, it is so easy to adjust if you like a milder or darker chocolate.  Literally just add or take away some of the powdered milk and you can dial it in exactly to your tastes.Milk Chocolate

Milk Chocolate and Candy Silicone Molds

In this Milk Chocolate recipe I had the pleasure of using Bargain Roll Back’s Silicone Molds.  These arrived, practically, as soon as I ordered them and I feel like they’re a great product.  Even my kids love playing with them.  So if you’re interested in getting Silicon Molds like the ones I use in this video you can find them HERE.

I love Drop Biscuits

This is the perfect Drop Biscuits recipe for you.  They are very light and fluffy and they pack a sweet buttery flavor that just melts in your mouth.  They only take a few minutes to mix and they are in and out of the oven in practically no time at all.  I would dare say that this Drop Biscuits recipe is better than KFC’s Biscuits.  And if you’re making Biscuits and Gravy then this is most definitely the recipe for you.  But, I would highly recommend that you try them with my family Egg Gravy.

My Egg Gravy recipe doesn’t have the traditional sausage base, which is fantastic by the way, no my egg gravy recipe derives it’s flavor from bacon and I can personally guarantee that it’s the best breakfast gravy you will ever have.  So I’ll include a link for that, down below, plus a link to my Scotch eggs recipe; which is another fun filled breakfast recipe.
