oven pancake1After picking five quarts of black raspberries on Wednesday at Mitchell’s Farm in Plain City, I needed some recipes for fresh raspberries. I’ve been wanting to try an oven pancake, and I found a recipe on Cooking Light’s website. 

 The recipe is simple and easy to make. The munchkin is just beginning to want to help me cook, and this is a great recipe for her to help. I measure, and she dumps all the ingredients in the bowl. 

 The pancake was light and delicate. The munchkin loved it with the raspberries and powdered sugar.

I also liked this recipe because it didn’t require me to stand at the stove and flip pancakes. We got to eat our pancake at the same time instead of me standing up to flip more pancakes every few minutes.

Oven Puffed Pancake with Raspberries


1/3  cup  all-purpose flour
1/3  cup  soy milk
2  tablespoons  granulated sugar
3  large eggs
Cooking spray or butter
1  cup  fresh raspberries
1  teaspoon  powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 425°.

2. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, soy milk, granulated sugar, and eggs in a bowl, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Pour mixture into a medium nonstick skillet or nine inch pie plate coated with cooking spray or grease the pan with butter. Wrap handle of pan with foil.

3. Bake at 425° for 15 to 18 minutes or until puffy and golden. Top with raspberries; sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve immediately.

So you need a side to go with your Baked Potato Soup? This Beer-Cheese Bread was awesome with it. My mom and I loved this bread. This is definitely the best bread that I have ever made at home. I will be making this all fall to go with our soup and chili. 

Basic Beer-Cheese Bread

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
13.5 ounces all-purpose flour (about 3 cups)
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 (12 ounce) bottle lager-style beer (I used Miller Lite)
Cooking spray
2 tablespoon melted butter, divided

1. Preheat over to 375 degrees.

2. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Add onion to pan; cook 10 minutes or until browned, stirrings occasionally. Stir in pepper and garlic; cook 1 minute.

3. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk; make a well in the center of the bowl. Add onion mixture, cheese, and beer to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Don’t over stir.

4. Spoon batter into a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of butter over the batter. Cook at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. Drizzle other tablespoon of butter over batter. Bake another 25 minutes or until the bread is a deep golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool five minutes in pan on a wire rack, then remove the bread from the pan. Cool completely before slicing. 

Notes: This recipe is from the November 2008 issue of Cooking Light, which is a great issue. It’s filled with lots of great recipes for Thanksgiving.
