Breakfast 'Bumpy' Cakes

I know I don't usually post on Saturday, but it is one of those windy/rainy stay-in-the-house-all-day kind of days.  We are bracing for Hurricane Sandy...which I think is now Tropical Storm Sandy, and with the wind...I'm sure I will lose internet service before anything else.  (because my internet sucks)  This is my first storm since we've moved to the coast, so I'm hoping Sandy dissipates pretty quickly!

Anyways....bumpy cakes? Yeah, I didn't come up with the name. I think it is very much like a German Pancake.  It has the taste of a pancake, and the texture of, of.....I'm not sure what to compare it too! It's different, but it's good.  As a matter of fact, Miss Two has requested that I make it again. Always a good sign.

It is convenient, b/c you can make it in a casserole dish....
and you can customize it any way you want.  We added chocolate chips to some, powdered sugar to others, (or BOTH since we are sugar-fiends).  You can add syrup, fruit, whatever!

Breakfast Bumpy Cake from Pennies on a Platter
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (I used Smart Balance)
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt (I used 1/2 tsp sea salt)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • toppings of choice (syrup, powdered sugar,chocolate chips,etc.)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Melt butter in the bottom of a 9- x 13-inch pan in the oven. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a blender, food processor or mixer. Pour into the hot buttered pan and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until high bumps appear and the top is lightly browned. (My 'bumps' deflated quickly)
I wish I had a plate full right now.  With bacon.  And maybe some grits.  Maybe I should go eat breakfast.
Hope everyone stays safe this weekend!

I'm linking up over at Six Sisters' Stuff!

I guess it's pretty obvious that this post contains affiliate links ;) Something new I'm trying out!


  1. Good luck weathering the storm my dear! We are hunkered down also...and I could use a piece of this!

  2. I've never had these before, but I've seen them made. They remind me a little of crepes.

  3. xD well as a german i can say these are no german pancakes :) they are more like "Kaiserschmarrn".
    "real" pancakes are reeaally flat and you fill them with marmalade and roll them up.
    non the less a great recipe =)
    sorry for my bad english^^

    1. That's really interesting Oki! I've also been told that in Germany, you don't really eat pancakes at breakfast time. Your pancake sounds like what I would call a crepe. It all sounds good to me :-)
