Favorite easy breakfast

You know those mornings when you want something fancier than cereal, but don't want to spend the time and energy to make pancakes or waffles?  I've been making this for years, and its definitely a family favorite (sometimes, I think my son likes it better than regular pancakes)

This is from the 2002 Cooking Light Annual Recipes.

Oven-Puffed Pancake
1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 c milk (we usually have 1% in the house, so we use that)
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1 tbsp butter

I usually add seasonal fruit.  Today, it was blueberries, but I love to add apples in the winter too!

Preheat over to 425.  Add all ingredients through flour to a bowl and mix thoroughly with a wish until blended.  Place 10 inch oven-safe pan on stove and melt butter.  Add batter and scatter fruit on top, if using.  Let cook on stove for 1 minute.  The edge should get slightly bubbly, and the butter should appear around the edge.  Bake for 18 minutes, or until golden brown.  You can serve with fresh fruit or powdered sugar.

When you take this out of the oven, it is beautiful golden brown and puffy.  It will fall pretty quickly after it comes out of the oven.  Its a fun, lazy morning breakfast!
