Add a new classic to this Jackson Hole Bed and Breakfast Recipe Book- skillet pancakes. Santa Claus delivered mini cast-iron skillets to the Inn on the Creek this year and we are busy inventing recipes for them. These handy 5″ skillets enable us to make fun, unique breakfast items to order.
They also have the added benefit of a creative presentation because the dishes are served in the skillets. These pancakes puff up while baking and have a great crepe like consistence.
