Volcano Pancake

It Rises like a Volcano while in the Oven

Start your Day with a Kid Friendly Breakfast

I stumbled upon this recipe about a year ago. It is so much fun to make. The ingredients are super simple and I bet you have them in your pantry right now. Your kids will sit in front of the oven in aww of how it bubbles and rises in the pan.

After your Volcano Pancake comes out of the oven, it does sink back down, much like a souffle. It tastes very similar to french toast. Drizzle a bit of syrup over the top your pancake will dissappear just as quickly as it sank, giggle.

This recipe can easily be halved and baked in an 8x8 inch square pan.

Step by Step Instructions
