Baked Simple German Pancake (Auflaufen)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Judikins

This simple, but delicious pancake is my version of one they make at Elmers Restaurant chain. They serve it with powdered sugar and lemon wedges. I like a little pure maple syrup on mine or possibly some sauted apples.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipe. It resulted in a very tasty treat for my lunch today. It was perfect. Light, fluffy tender and full of flavor. I decided to fill the center with homemade apple sauce. So glad that I did, it was terrific with the pancake. I will be making this again, it was so quick and easy to throw together. made for Name That Ingredient Tag Game.
