Breakfast is one of my favorite meals to prepare. Whether it be a weekend or a weekday, it really does set the tone for the day. During the week of course, we might not always have the time to prepare something special but it is recipes like this that make it possible. Although the presentation of this beautiful pancake seems difficult it really essentially is a mix and go sort of recipe. One that can be a quick weekday breakfast and lovely enough to be served at a brunch with friends.

What You Will Need To Make This Puff Pancake Recipe

1 cup (120g) of flour

6 eggs

1 cup (240g) of milk

1 tsp (4g) vanilla

5 tbsp (71g) butter

1/4 tsp (.55g) nutmeg

1 tsp (2.6g) cinnamon
