A 10 vs.12-inch pan varies the thickness of the pancake and cooking time.
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup milk
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 4 tablespoons butter
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Put butter in a 10-12 inch oven proof round skillet or pan and place in oven for about 8 minutes.
Meanwhile in 2-quart bowl combine flour and salt. In a smaller bowl beat or whisk eggs, milk and powered sugar until smooth, then mix in and blend with flour.
Carefully take hot skillet out of oven. Tilt and rotate to make sure bottom is coated with butter. Pour batter into hot pan, tilting to distribute evenly, then return to oven.
Bake until puffy and golden brown about 12-15 minutes. A larger pan bakes closer to 12 minutes, as batter is slightly thinner.
Cut in wedges and serve with your choice of toppings.
