Mini Puffed Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce

Posted by Vanessa in Cooking, February 8, 2012


Another yummy breakfast recipe for the week, all from basically flour, milk and eggs.  These little beauties are delicious topped with a strawberry sauce, or even a blueberry one too.  We tried that variety last weekend and I don’t think there was a drop left.  Just sub blueberries for the strawberries in the recipe, everything else stays the same.

These puffed pancakes are just like little mini popovers, for breakfast.  The mini size is perfect for kiddos, and there’s usually an air pocket inside, that once you take the first bite, is perfect for scooping up a bunch of sauce inside for the perfect second bite.  Delicious, folks.  And ridiculously easy we even have these during the week too because they’re so easy to whip up.
