Here is the best thing about this crowd pleasing breakfast: It's super easy!

First get some ingredients--not too many; just a few.

You put those ingredients together in a simple ratio:

1 egg to 1/4 cup milk to 1/4 cup flour and 1 T butter per serving. One serving fits nicely into a small pie pan.  It's our family's experience that 5 eggs, 1-1/4 cups of milk and 1-1/4 cups of flour and 5 T of butter works best in a 9x13 inch casserole dish.

Very important: never ever add salt. Matt forgets and does this every so often. They don't puff. The kids are disappointed, but the dogs are incredibly thankful. Depending on how the kids are acting that day--you might find more satisfaction with the salt addition. 

While the oven is heating to 475 degrees--melt the butter in your pan in the oven. Whisk together the ingredients and add to the melted butter. Stick it in the oven. Oven must be preheated! Play around with the time. 10 minutes for one serving, 20 for 5!

Here's what to look for.

Now you're talking. This will "wow!" the table and satisfy everyone's hunger for at least 5 minutes. Add a side of bacon and they might make it 10 minutes before hunting in the frig again.

Before you serve your spectacular creation, you have to add a few more ingredients, well, exactly two:

cut these into quarter and give one to each eater. Then add:

I mean really, what breakfast isn't delictible with some powdered sugar sprinkled on top?

As my nephew once said, "When you add the lemons and the powdered sugar, these are heavenly." Well, lemon and sugar has always been a winner:

P.S.--I'm not a big fan of bacon, but I do like bran muffins and the best part is that I'm the only one who likes them, so I get the whole plate to myself!
