When I was 15, my family spent some time in Oklahoma and our relatives there. I was so impressed with the cooking of my Great-Aunt Maggie and I asked her to share her recipes with me. She wrote down a few and then explained that she didn’t own any measuring cups, so she estimated that the amount was about the same as a coffee cup, and she thought it was about the same as a cup.
They tended to serve this with butter and powdered sugar, I’ve also seen it filled with fruit.
It makes a fun weekend breakfast and the kids have always loved seeing the big poof come out of the oven.
1 cup flour (almond, oat or all purpose*)
1 cup milk or yogurt
1/4 cup butter
Put butter in a large cast iron frying pan (or a metal 9 x 13 pan), place in oven and preheat to 425 degrees F.
Blend eggs, flour and milk together. When oven is preheated, pour batter into hot buttered pan. Bake for 25 minutes.
Cut into wedges and serve hot with fruit sauce, jam or syrup.
*If you use all-purpose flour (wheat), Hootenanny Pancakes turn into huge popovers! So much fun!
