After I saw this recipe demonstrated on tv called "Zacherl einfach kochen!"while living in Germany, I had to give it a try. It was so yummy. On the show, they served the dish by chopping up the finished pancake and sauteeing in a skillet (turning it into Schmarrn, a popular German chopped pancake). However, we preferred this recipe straight out of the baking dish. This recipe calls for Huettenkaese, which is German for Cottage cheese.
