Between my perfect pancakes and the best french toast, breakfast has recently become my favorite meal of the day. And with this new addition to my repertoire, things are getting dangerously delicious.
When I went down to Texas to visit my family for the holidays, I had a lot of mouths to feed. Pancakes and french toast are good options but when you are feeding a large crowd you need something that is quick and easy. This hootenanny recipe was perfect! It uses ingredients you already have in your cupboards, there is little prep time, practically no dishes to clean and it’s ready to eat in under 30 minutes. What makes this even better is that people can dress it up as much or as little as they like. It is great with syrup, powdered sugar, fruit or enjoy it simply plain.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk (I used 2% but any milk should do)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter melted
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Mix ingredients together in a medium bowl. Pour batter into a greased 9×13 pan. Then pour butter over the top. Do not mix. Bake for 25 minutes.
Cut into pieces, dress with your favorite topping and serve.

The texture of the final product is light and fluffy and reminds me a little bit of Yorkshire pudding. Unlike other breakfast options, the hootenanny is packed full of protein. Therefore it is sure to keep you satisfied. It is also not as sweet as pancakes or french toast so you don’t feel as guilty enjoying yourself. Like all my breakfast dishes, I like to serve it with a side of crispy bacon. Yum…
Now raise your hand if you plan on eating a hootenanny for breakfast? (Both of my hands are totally raised right now!)
