This recipe is about as easy as it gets. It has few ingredients, little direct involvement, and the kids love it. I'm not a huge fan of the texture personally, but to the kids, it's like a gigantic pancake. The love watching me pull it from the oven because it's enormous. It sinks a bit after a few minutes, but the kids still think it's neat. It is nice to have as a backup, for those days when you want to give the kids something warm and homemade, but not put a lot of time and effort into it.
3 cups flour
3 cups milk
1 dozen eggs
1/4 cup butter
Preheat oven to 450*
Combine the flour, milk and eggs in a large bowl, and whisk thoroughly.
Place the butter in a 9x13 baking dish, and place in the oven. Once the butter is melted, pour the batter into the hot dish. Bake for 25 minutes exactly. Do NOT open the oven door! Wait until the timer goes off, and then remove the puff from the oven.
Serve with pancake syrup, jelly, powdered sugar, or just about anything else you might like.
