Leah McLean, anchor on 5 Eyewitness News, shares a recipe she learned from her mom, Patty. It’s a recipe out of the cookbook, “A Taste of Oregon.”

1/3 cup butter or margarine
5 large or extra-large eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
Powdered sugar, syrup and fresh lemon wedges

Put butter in a 9×13 inch baking dish and set in a 425 degree oven to melt. While butter is melting, put the eggs in a blender and blend on high for 1 minute. Gradually add milk, then flour (slowly); blend for 30 seconds. Remove the baking dish from the oven and pour the batter into the hot, melted butter. Return to heated 425 degree oven and bake until puffy and nicely browned, approximately 20-25 minutes. Serve immediately with powdered sugar, syrup, and fresh lemon wedges. Serves 4

SUGGESTION: Other good sauce accompaniments include fresh strawberries; brown sugar and sour cream; banana or papaya slices sauteed in butter and served with lime wedges; or sauteed apple slices sweetened with cinnamon and sugar and served with sour cream or plain yogurt.
