German Pancake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Lavender Lynn

This came out of the local paper in Klamath Falls, Oregon. Sometimes called a "Dutch Baby." Serve with: berries and cream; lemon curd; butter, powdered sugar and drizzled lemon juice (yum!); raspberry jam; crushed pineapple; or chunky apple sauce. Be sure to use the lowest available oven rack as it sometimes grows quite tall while baking. The baking time given may be just a little long, so watch when it gets close.

Just love german pancakes and these were perfect!! I made 1/2 of the recipe and served with sliced strawberries and whipped topping, yum! I forgot how much these babies puff up while baking and had put them in the top part of my oven (which is like a large toaster oven), well they puffed right up into the heating element, lol!! But overall they cooked perfectly. Thanks for sharing the recipe Lynn. Made for ZWT 6.
