  2. Pour the batter into the skillets. 

  3. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes. 

  4. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar. Serve immediately with either syrup or fruit compote. 

Children will love its cloud-like appearance and will most probably ask for more slices. Enjoy! (Recipe adapted from Melissa d’Arabian)
