Step 4: Baking
1. Take out pan with the melted butter. Be careful, the pan is hot.
2. Poor the batter into the buttered pan and place the pan back into the 425 degree oven.
3. Bake for 15 minutes.
Keep an eye on the pancake during the baking process as it will go from perfection to burned in a short amount of time. I usually set the timer for 10 minutes, check it, then add 4 minutes, then check it, then watch it for the last couple minutes to make sure it doesn't ruin my carefully cultivated culinary reputation...
Culinary Genius conversation point: The reason this pancake rises without any additional leavening (baking soda), is due to:
1) the beaten eggs, which by whisking, incorporated air and increased their volume 2) the wet ingredients evaporating in a relatively high temperature oven and 3) the glutton in the flour acting in tandem with evaporating wet ingredients (steam).
