When I was 15, my family spent some time in Oklahoma and our relatives there. I was so impressed with the cooking of my Great-Aunt Maggie and I asked her to share her recipes with me. She wrote down a few and then explained that she didn’t own any measuring cups, so she estimated that the amount was about the same as a coffee cup, and she thought it was about the same as a cup.
They tended to serve this with butter and powdered sugar, I’ve also seen it filled with fruit.
It makes a fun weekend breakfast and the kids have always loved seeing the big poof come out of the oven.
