Oatmeal Oven Pancake with Pecans and Chocolate Chips

I love oven pancakes. They're often called Dutch 
Babies or German Pancakes. They are easy to 
make because they don't require constant time
 at the stove. I just need to pop them in the oven
 and walk away to do other things. My oven puff 
pancakes filled with fresh strawberries are a
regular breakfast around our house.  They are
 also a favorite made by everyone in my family. 
So when I found a new version on Pinterest I 
knew I'd add to the Strawberry Puff Pancakes
 and Baked Apple Cinnamon Pancakes favorites. 
 Gather all ingredients. There are basically
2 steps: the skillet ingredients and the
blender ingredients. 
Add the pecans, butter, salt, brown sugar, and
orange juice to an 8" skillet and put in oven 
while it preheats to 425º. 
Meanwhile add the batter ingredients
to the blender and blend until smooth.
 Once the butter is hot and bubbly, about 
5 minutes, remove the skillet from the 
oven and stir the mixture to combine.
 Pour over the batter ingredients from 
the blender and sprinkle the top with 
chocolate chips.
 Return the skillet to the oven.
Bake for 20 minutes or until browned.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with
 orange juice. Dust with powdered sugar.
The orange juice with the pecans and 
oatmeal is a great combination.
Cut into wedges and serve right away.
Sprinkle with more powdered sugar at the table.
