This is just the basic German Pancake recipe I've always made (and seen), just cut in third. I didn't think it was too eggy at all. We usually just eat it with syrup, so the fruit was a nice change.

Not rating since it wasn't made with fruit or almond garnish, but I wanted to share my husband's comments. An avid German pancake eater, he felt this recipe was a bit too close to an omelet ("eggy"), even with the addition of powdered sugar and fresh squeezed lemon juice. Perhaps some tweaking would improve the flavor/texture for him.
