Cloud Pancake

Good Morning!!! I thought I'd start off this beautiful spring Saturday with a big, yummy breakfast.  I was craving some pancakes, so I decided to try out a recipe I found on for a single serving "Honey Cloud Pancake".  I made a few changes to the original recipe to reduce the calories... I substituted light agave nectar for honey and omitted the butter.  It takes a bit of work (lots of whisking) to make these pancakes, but WOW!  Cloud pancakes are light and airy, but also still filling and delicious!

Cloud Pancake
based on a recipe from

To make a single serving pancake you will need:

1 large egg and 1 egg white
1/4 cup of warmed milk
1/4 cup of flour
1 pinch of salt
2 teaspoons of light agave nectar
1 dash of vanilla extract
Soft fruits
Light agave nectar

How to make them:

Heat the oven to 395°F.  Place a small 6″ oven proof frying pan in the pre-heating oven to warm.

In one bowl whisk one egg white until it is white and peaky.

To make the main batter, in another bowl, mix the the other whole egg with flour, salt, agave nectar, and vanilla then whisk in the warm milk.

Gently fold the egg white into the batter with a metal spoon.

Spray the hot pan with non-stick spray.

Pour the batter in hot pan and cook on the stove top for a few minutes until starting to set at the very edge.

Sprinkle some fruit on top.

Place pan back in the hot oven for 7 minutes until batter puffed up and golden.

 Drizzle with light agave nectar. (you could even sprinkle with powdered sugar!)

You could use so many different fruits and toppings in this cloud pancake!!  I can't wait to try more!  Hummmm... An apple cinnamon one would be good... or blueberry... 

For a share-able Cloud Pancake, double the recipe and use a 12" pan :) 

Have a great day!
