This baked battercake.

In fact, i feel in our 13+ years of wedding, till I took footage for this post, I had solely created this once. I’ve eaten it.
Devoured would be a additional applicable description. however Brian’s the master of the battercake.
He makes them typically on weekends for the youngsters and he’s a bigger than life singer within their eyes attributable to it (it’s handily their favorite breakfast in the history of ever).

I’m estimation several of you’ve got enjoyed the wonders of this lightweight and craggly, puffy flapcake.
It wasn’t till Bart’s email that i assumed concerning it additional seriously. As in, perhaps I ought to really post concerning this beloved breakfast?

Spurred on by a throwback to the classics last week, i made a decision to waste no time in sharing our favourite version of the battercake.
And whereas the flapcake is therefore easy (literally, but 2 minutes with the mixer and you’re able to bake) and delicious, the preposterously tasty butter sweetener is that the star.
