Weekend Brunch: German Pancake



Friends of ours brought over this fluffy German Pancake for a brunch I hosted at my house last weekend. You bake it in the oven, and it comes out light and puffy and wonderful. It's particularly great topped with powdered sugar, maple syrup, jam, fresh fruit, or a squeeze of lemon.

In fact, it was so delicious that we all had seconds...and then thirds!



German Pancake

6 eggs

1 cup flour

1 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 tablespoons butter

Melt butter. Pour melted butter into baking dish (for thin and airy pancake, use a 9 x 13 inch baking dish; for thick, dense pancake, use smaller baking dish or oven-safe skillet). Mix eggs, flour, milk, and salt in blender for 3-5 minutes. Pour batter into baking dish. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes or until pancake puffs up.

YUM.  My mom used to make these growing up.  We would rub butter into the cast iron skillets and freeze them the night before  (not sure if that improves the baking at all--but we ALL knew when german pancakes were going to be made the next day).  We ate ours with powdered sugar and lemon juice.  So good.
