Pancake Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place the butter in a large oven-proof skillet (cast iron works well) and preheat skillet, melting the butter.
  3. In a large blender, combine the eggs, vanilla, sugar, flour, warm milk, and salt. Blend on low speed for 30-45 seconds or until well combined.
  4. Remove the hot pan carefully from the oven. Swirl butter around to coat bottom and sides of pan, and pour remaining butter into the blender with the batter.
  5. Pulse to combine a few times.
  6. Pour the mixture back into the hot pan, sprinkle with the blueberries, and bake for 20 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
  7. Dust hot pancake with the powdered sugar, slice into wedges and serve warm.
Blueberry-Maple Syrup
  1. Make the syrup while the pancake bakes by combining the butter and blueberries in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Simmer for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the blueberries start to create their own sauce.
  3. Add the maple syrup and stir. Serve warm atop the pancake slices.
Recipe Notes

From The Recipe Author
"On lazy Sunday mornings, it has become a tradition in my family to make beautiful oven-puffed Dutch pancakes. It is something all the kids enjoy as well as my husband, and those types of meals are becoming few and far between these days. I love the convenience of quickly throwing ingredients in a blender and then the oven, and not having to spend my whole morning flipping pancakes. I actually get to relax with the paper and a cup of coffee while this magically transforms into puffy perfection.

As you can imagine, we have experimented with many flavors of pancake, since this is a weekly event. This week, we picked our own blueberries at a farm near our home. We eagerly wait all year for this, and then always woefully wish the blueberry season were longer. The combination of our pick-your-own blueberry adventure and our Sunday pancake collided this week. The results were delicious. Heavenly. Everyone in my picky family proclaimed it a success, and our "best pancake ever." I hope this recipe can become a tradition in your family, as it has in ours."
