    4 servings

    Really easy to make, and delicious. I added half a teaspoon of vanilla to the batter. If you don't have the ingredients to make the berry topping, you could eat this without topping or top this with anything you have at home (maple syrup, lemon curd, raspberry jam, etc.) and it would still be delicious. Two thumbs up.

    I love this recipe! It is so easy and yet looks like you really fussed so it makes a perfect company breakfast. I did not have the orange liqueur so I used orange juice for both the juice and liquour liquid amounts. It worked great. One hint - for the best presentation have the berries and sauce ready when it comes from the oven and present it immediately so it doesn't flatten before you get it to the table!

    This recipe is ok. I would not add the berries until you cut and serve they fall all over, i would use a iron skillet about 11 inch and dont use a-lot of batter in the pie pan or skillet. Finally i would also use cinnamon powdered sugar and no berries, both are good.

    I will definately make this again. I have been trying puff pancake recipes & made this today. It was delicious! I did not have the orange liqueur, blueberries or raspberries but used extra strawberries instead. My husband & I both loved it.
