I discovered this recipe back in January when it was circulating around on pinterest and found that it linked back to Post Road Vintage, a second surprise....a lovely blog with beautiful pictures. (I'm now a follower.)
I have found this recipe very fast to mix up with basic ingredients...and its delightful! It is wonderful when it first comes out of the oven, but later when chilled reminds me of my mom's egg custard pie without the crust ~ so good.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. While oven preheats, melt 1/4 c. butter in your iron skillet or pan in oven.
5 eggs, beaten
3/4 c. sugar (I use brown sugar and Post Road Vintage uses 1/2 c. honey as a substitute)
1 c. flour
1 tsp salt
2 c. milk
Whip everything in a bowl till mixed. (I used my electric mixer.)
Pour on top of melted butter in pan. Sprinkle cinnamon on top, and carefully slide back into oven.
Bake for 30-35 minutes until center is puffy. It gets really big. Mine usually bakes for the entire 35 minutes.
It will only stay puffy for a few minutes then goes flat like baked custard.
I enjoy this with my favorite blackberry preserves and a pot of tea.
Have a great week and thanks always for stopping by!
p.s Don't you just love my tea cozy above? My friend Jessica knitted this for me as a surprise. I cherish it.
