This is a very easy breakfast dish. It goes well witha fresh fruit, crisp bacon or sausages. If you serve this on it's own it serves one person but if you have sausages, potatoes, peppers, mushrooms etc it serves two. There are as many variations as you have imagination. Just follow the batter recipe and then add what ever you fancy before serving. In the picture I have dressed it with "No sugar added" Raspberry Jam & Pine nuts. I make my batter early - keep it in the fridge, heat my pan, melt the butter, pour in the icecold batter and pop it in the 450F oven. Works every time. It is fun to bring the puffed pancake to the table in the skillet and serve from the skillett

I've been looking for a recipe called the German pancake that they serve at Elmer's resturant. This is the same thing! Thanks

If you omit the nuts and spread with butter, powered sugar and fresh lemon juice. My grandchildren love it this way. You can add fresh fruit if you want.
