Eric Goeddel chose Mrs. Francisco’s class

This morning, our friends Barney and Charlie came by because we were going to UCLA to see the baseball game against the Oregon Ducks. Spane’s first grade class (Mrs. Francisco) was chosen by number 33 Eric Goeddel to come to the game at UCLA today.

Out friend, Maria, was with us as she is on all Sunday mornings. I love Maria Torres so much! She is so much fun, and when she tells those headline jokes, it’s just too much!

Anyway, you’re here to hear about the food, right? Well, when I had asked Bonnie to come from breakfast, and what she liked, she had said pancakes. Hmmm, I thought to myself last night – that’s a lot of pancakes to stand there and make (and this is right after making Cheddar Cheese Spritz Crackers last night). I vaguely remembered hearing about a baked pancake, so I decided to make Dutch Babies, otherwise known as Baked Pancakes.

I served the pancake with fresh strawberries and sweetened sour cream. Baked bacon was also on the menu. It was truly a hit!

Recipe: Oven Pancake or Dutch Babies

Summary: This giant pancake is great with powdered sugar and strawberries


  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon Butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • Shortening
  • 8 inch Iron skillet


  1. In a medium bowl, beat eggs until thick and lemon colored.
  2. Add milk, flour and salt, vanilla and sugar. Carefully mix in the butter.
  3. Grease the iron skillet with a little shortening.
  4. Pour batter into the pan of melted butter. Bake at 450 for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Cut in fourths.

Quick notes

Use shortening or vegetable oil, not butter, to grease the pan. Butter has too low of a smoking point, and your pancake will burn.

Baked Bacon

If you want really perfect bacon every time, then line a cookie sheet (one with sides) with foil. Lay the slices of bacon on the foil, and put into a preheated oven for about 10 minutes, or until it gets to your liking.
