Wow! This is an absolutely delicious and flavorful pancake. We loved each and every bite. My DH and I actually fought over the last piece. It's something that I plan on making again and again and...well, you get the idea. I left out the cardamom because it was really expensive and I didn't want to pay that much for something I had never tasted. I am glad I left it out because in my opinion, this Dutch Baby/German Pancake is more then tasty without it. After it finished baking, I added a little powdered sugar and that was it. So good and so very easy to make. It's a winner!
My husband and I both thought this German pancake wasn't as good as the less heavy one I made last week. Also, the middle darkened quickly in my convection oven and I had to put foil over it to keep it from burning. My other recipe is the same as German Pancake, Northern Pacific Railway except that it cooks at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. I liked the additions of lemon zest and cardamom in this recipe.
Excellent! (I, too, made without cardamom.) A little thicker and denser than the ones I remember growing up with, but very tasty. We topped with powdered sugar and lots of lemon juice. I didn't have real lemons, so for zest I used bottled lemon peel & for lemon juice I used a non-concentrated lemon juice in the little lemon-looking plastic container.
What a great, easy, delicious recipe. The flavor and texture are amazing. The lemon really comes through and brightens up the dish. I usually add a little vanilla and/or almond extract. Thanks!
Ooh - this was lovely (at least according to my kids - they only let me have one bite!) - with some maple syrup poured over the top. A definite keeper - thank you!
Made this for DH, he ate the whole thing! I left out the cardamom, as he doesn't like that flavor. Topped with strawberries and maple syrup.
This was delicious! I used butter and served it with powdered sugar. Very easy, and very filling! Thanks!
yummy! I used butter. And I ate it like that without maple syrup. I really loved the taste of cardamom and lemon zest. My baby of 22 months loved this also. The only thing I'll do next time, I'll put a baking sheet under the 9 inch plate cause it goes up a lot and I had drippings in the bottom of the oven. Thanks Appetizerqueen :)
SUPER! and so easy! I had something like this when I was younger and visiting a friend. My daughter loved it so much she is making another one this morning. I put some extra butter on top and used just a little warm maple syrup. I didn't have cardomon but it still turned out delicious.
