I asked my daughter if she’d like to help me make some Hootenanny for breakfast the other morning and I got this look:
That basically means something along the lines of “Mom. You’re crazy.”
Or, maybe “How did I end up stuck with the wackadoo for a mother?”
It could also mean “Yep. She’s finally lost her mind.”
Whatever. Children can be so judgemental.
Hootenanny, also called Volcano Pancakes, is a super quick, super simple breakfast that tastes like a mix between pancakes and french toast. It calls for basic ingredients that you’re sure to have around and the kids will love watching it poof up in crazy shapes.
I drenched ours in maple syrup and powdered sugar. The best days always start with copious amounts of maple syrup and powdered sugar.
That’s a fact.
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
- 6 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
- Place the stick of butter in a 9x13 baking dish and put it in the oven to melt while you prepare the batter.
- Beat the eggs, milk, salt, cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg until frothy.
- Whisk in the flour until well combined.
- Pour over the melted butter in the baking dish. Do not stir.
- Bake for 25 minutes or until the center is set and the edges are browned.
