One of the few things I managed to get done before everyone else got up was to make Pannu Kakku recipe, which we originally got from Lacey. It turned out much better this morning than it usually does, possibly due to the fact that I used part half and half and part water instead of just water. Most of us have milk allergies so milk isn't around much anyhow.
In case you want to get up with the sun and make a few pans of Pannu Kakku for your family, here's the recipe!
1 1/4 C. flour
4 T. butter
1 tsp. salt
3 C. milk
Melt butter in preheated 425 degree oven (I had it at 385 for the first few minutes and that worked fine, then I turned it up to 400). Beat eggs slightly in large bowl. Add salt and one cup milk. Beat slightly. Add rest of milk and flour and beat well. Pour into pan, bake 30 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve hot with syrup.
We make it with apples, if we have any. Just slice up an apple or two into thin slices and stir them into the batter before it goes into pan.
I have also experimented with putting 1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar in the pan with the butter. MMMM..doesn't need any syrup that way. I forgot to put it in this time.
Made right (or at least the way we like it here?), it has a slightly crunchy crust and a soft, almost scrambled egg like texture in the middle (BONNIE! Don't give away too many details that would scare people off!). It's a lot smoother than scrambled eggs though. If any of my siblings read this, or one of the Matsons, they could give us some more words to describe it. It is really a great breakfast :D
