Big Fluffy Pancake

I gave my son a Betty Crocker cookbook in the early 90's that had a recipe for a big fluffy pancake, almost a yorkshire pudding. He has lost the cookbook and really wants the recipe. My recreations have not quite done it for him. Does anyone have the recipe?

    Search for 'dutch baby', which uses a Yorkshire/popover like batter, but slightly sweetened. Alton Brown included that in his episode on popovers etc.

      Also try a search for David Eyre Pancake. It was made in a preheated cast iron skillet in the oven. Adam

        Yess!! Just did a search and there it was. Apparently popularized by Craig Claiborne. They are delicious w/ a little powdered sugar, preserves or maple syrup. Adam

        Looks to me to be a rendition of the German Pancake "Dutch Babies" that my grandmother taught us to make when we were kids.
