This is a breakfast dish that resembles a giant puffy pancake. The recipe originated in South Carolina in the 18th century, and this version is topped off with assorted fresh berries (and any berries can be used, such as raspberries, strawberries, blueberries). Or instead of fresh berries, you can drizzle maple syrup on top.
