German Pancake

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mega8718

My sister gave me this recipe several years ago. She got it from a women's magazine but unfortunately I can't remember which one. This is my favorite recipe for german pancake, it comes out of the oven puffed up huge and tastes wonderful with powdered sugar and fresh squeezed lemon juice on top.

This is so easy, so delicious and so pretty that I got a little carried away with my photos! Lol! I used my cast iron skillet as recommended although I'm eager to try this in my All Clad 12-inch skillet that would make the pancake a bit flatter, which my DH would prefer. For him, this was too un-cake like. It was perfect to me because it was very custard-like. This would be a great addition to a brunch buffet or to whip up quickly in the morning for overnight guests. Thanks, Mega! Made for PAC Fall 2012.
