Brunch Popover Pancake

Yield 4 servings
Complete with fruit and the "pancake," this recipe needs little else served with it. If you want a heavier meal, consider serving it with scrambled eggs and bacon or thinly sliced ham.


  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 3 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen sliced peaches, thawed and drained
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries, thawed

How to Make It

  1. Place a well-greased 12-inch cast-iron skillet in a 425° oven for 5 minutes.

  2. Combine first 5 ingredients, stirring with a wire whisk until blended.

  3. Remove skillet from oven. Pour batter into hot skillet.

  4. Bake at 425° for 20 to 25 minutes. (This resembles a giant popover and will fall quickly after removing from oven.)

  5. Combine marmalade, 3 tablespoons butter, and lemon juice in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Add peaches, and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes. Spoon on top of baked pancake. Sprinkle with blueberries.
