The recipe calls for just blueberries, but I threw in some strawberries and raspberries, as well. It didn't call for any spices, so I added what I like, in addition to some vanilla.
Here's the recipe with my notes:
Oven-Baked Berry Pancake
1 C all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp plus 1 tsp granulated sugar, divided
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp course salt
3/4 C whole milk (I used vanilla almond milk)
1 large egg
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted, plus 1 Tbsp for pan
1 C blueberries (I also added a handful of garden strawberries and raspberries)
I added Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and All-Spice to taste, about 1 tsp of each
I added 1 Tbsp vanilla
Confectioners' sugar, for serving (I skipped this out of laziness)
Maple syrup, for serving
Preheat oven to 375. Place a 10-inch cast-iron skillet (or other nonstick oven proof pan) in oven. Whisk together flour, 3 Tbsp granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Whisk together milk, egg, and melted butter in another bowl. Whisk milk mixture into flour mixture until just combined.
Remove skillet from oven and add remaining 1 Tbsp butter, swirling to coat pan. Pour in batter and smooth top. Sprinkle evenly with berries and remaining 1 tsp of sugar (I used cinnamon-sugar for the top).
Bake until golden brown and cooked through, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven; let cool 5 minutes before dusting with powdered sugar and serving with syrup.
We had whipped cream for ours, too. :) So stinkin' good. And you could use the same base recipe for all different flavor combos. Apple, pumpkin puree in the fall, grated zucchini, carrots, or parsnips, dried fruit and nuts. I'm all over this one.
