German Pancake

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Carambola

I absolutely LOVE these! Traditionally served with lemon wedges - but MUCH better with lime! Easy to make, and great reheated!

This is exactly what I was looking for. I don't eat a lot of flour and was looking for a more "eggy" version. Never tried lime on a german pancake before and this is the first time I made one in my cast iron skillet. I ate the whole thing and have added it to my repertoire.
