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.

This recipe was too similar to my own for me to post it, so I'm reviewing Bergy's version. Quick, easy, delicious! By time you set the table for brekkie, this pancake is done! I love the eggy-taste and the fact that NO sugar is used in the batter; this allows me to add my own sweet topping. I've never made it with ice cold batter; I only have used room temperature batter whipped into a frenzy with my manual beater to achieve maximum height. A 10" skillet makes a large enough pancake for the two of us, with some lovely crsip bacon on the side.

Just tried this this morning. Quite good, and even better its easy to prepare on a whim-no special grocery trips! I used the powdered sugar and raspberry preserves (as I had no marmalade) and was pretty good like that. I'll try it next time with the marmalade (which I love) and some butter. Thanks

What better way to start the new year but with a recipe of Bergy's?! I read earlier this week that it is a tradition in some cultures that if you "eat poor" on New Year's Day, you'll have a successful year. Since I need all the good luck charms I can gather, I decided to go with that philosophy and chose this dish to be my first meal of 2004. What a great decision! This is incredibly easy to whip together, and is make with low-cost on-hand ingredients. I made two minor changes: I used only a sprinkle of salt, not the full 1/4 tsp, and I added 1/8 tsp of pure almond extract to add a nutty sweetness (I didn't use the nuts called for). I served it, to myself (hubby is at work), with a sprinkle of icing sugar, a dab of butter, and a big spoonful of orange marmalade. This looks very cool when it comes out of the oven, all puffed up like a giant bowl. I'm guessing kids would love it. I enjoyed this very much and intend to make it often. Thanks Bergy, for helping me start 2004 off right!

I love this! My kids can make it on their own, which is great. We like to add some sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon and/or nutmeg to the batter before baking.

it was really good, i don't know if i did everything right but the product came out yummy. I added a tablespoon of sugar and a little bit of vanilla extract. and served it with chocolate chips and powdered sugar. i think next time i'll heat the pan a little more before i put the batter in.

This was so easy and perfect for 2 people. I mixed it in my blender and possibly overmixed it because it didn't raise much. When I make these again I will try just a bit of sugar in the mixture and maybe vanilla, but only because I am a sugar addict.

This was super easy to make... but I found that it actually made too little. Plus, I was unsure as to what size of pan to use. I ended up using an 8" round pan. It seemed to work quite well. I think I would simply double this next time. The flavour was great. Nice and light. Perfect for an early morning breakfast!
