Here is the latest addition to our family.  My husband says this new purchase truly makes us a redneck family but I beg to differ.  We live in the land of 10,000+ lakes and I’m so excited to take this baby camping!  We got it for a few hundred dollars and it is in amazing shape.  No leaks, tears or damage and sleeps eight.

Camping = Happiness. It was our form of vacation every summer as a kid.  My absolute favorite childhood memories go hand in hand with our pop-up camper filled to the brim with all nine of us.  I don’t know if I will be able to recreate those same experiences for my kids, but I’m sure going to try!  Now if someone would be kind enough to send Minnesota some warmer weather…..

Unfortunately, this recipe will not be making any appearances on our camping trips since I won’t have an oven but I might just try it in a dutch oven with coals.  This pancake is a major staple in our home, especially when Donny is traveling and I need an easy meal.  I have to make two pans to feed our crew because my kids love them so much, especially sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.

1/4 C butter

6 eggs

1 C milk

1 C flour

1/4 C sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Melt butter in a glass cake pan in the microwave.
2.  In a large bowl, beat together remaining ingredients with a whisk until most of the lumps are gone, about 3 minutes.  Allow batter to rest for 5 minutes so any gluten built up will relax.
3.  Pour batter into cake pan that has the melted butter in it.  Bake for 45 minutes on the middle rack of your oven to allow room for the pancake to puff up.
4.  Serve immediately with syrup, cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar or fresh fruit jam.
