Puffed Cherry Pancake

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/cherry_pancake.html

From EatingWell:  May/June 2012

This puffed cherry pancake is similar to an Apfelpfannkuchen—a puffy German pancake full of apples. Dust it with confectioners’ sugar or drizzle with maple syrup for a special breakfast treat.

4 servings | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Place 1 teaspoon butter in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet or ovenproof nonstick skillet and transfer to the oven to melt the butter.
  2. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a small pan or the microwave. Transfer to a medium bowl and whisk in milk, eggs and vanilla. Add flour, granulated sugar, salt and cinnamon and whisk to combine.
  3. Remove the pan from the oven, tilting it to coat the bottom with butter. Add cherries in a layer. Pour the batter over the cherries and sprinkle with almonds.
  4. Bake the pancake until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before cutting into 4 wedges. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar, if desired.
