Presque-Isle Pancakes

Submitted by Madeline Jones-Cressy. This is a recipe my grandmother has enjoyed making for a few decades! It is a good warm breakfast option for these colder months. My grandmother calls them Presque-Isle Pancakes after Maine’s Presque-Isle. Click here for a youtube video I made a while ago for fun (It should be 1 egg, not two).

Commonly called Dutch babies


  • ½  cup flour (white flour rises better than wheat, but both taste good)
  • ½  cup milk (any kind of milk works, I don’t generally use cow’s milk)
  • 1-2 tablespoons butter (to your taste)
  • 1 egg 
  • Pinch of cinnamon


  • Heat oven to 425 F and melt butter in a pie dish.
  • Mix all ingredients and then pour into the pie dish with melted butter. 
  • Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until the sides of the pancake rise and turn a golden brown.
  • Take out of the oven (It will not stay risen for long, so take a picture quickly!) and then serve with applesauce, whipped cream, ice cream, jam, or anything you like on top!
