Giant Creeping Pancake

Debbe Guster


I found this recipe in an old cookbook and thought it would be fun for the kids.They liked watching it grow in the oven. Now the kids are grown and have kids of there own and I still make this for me when I don't know what I want.It seems to take care of the sweet tooth and fills me up. I hope you have fun and enjoy this.

How to Make Giant Creeping Pancake


  1. Mix all ingredients and mix well. Melt 4 Tbsp. oleo (I use butter) in a 10-12 inch cast iron skillet. Pour batter into hot skillet and bake 15 min. Remove from oven and sprinkle with lemon juice and 4-6 Tbsp. powdered sugar. Bake 5 more min. Cut and serve hot. Oven should be 425 degrees.
  2. If you have an oven with a window and light turn it on and let the kids watch it grow.
