German Pancake

Typically German Pancakes are made in a cast iron skillet. I did not have a cast iron skillet so I just used a pie pan, which explains how smooth the sides and inside of the pancake are. But, I can assure that this recipe is tasty no matter the type of pan used to make it.

German Pancake.

3 eggs
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
couple of dashes of cinnamon
Pinch of sugar
Pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place butter in a cast iron skillet (or pie pan) and set in oven.

Beat eggs in a standing mixer then slowly add the milk and flour, then the vanilla, sugar and cinnamon.

Pour batter into hot pie pan. Return pie pan to oven and bake for 20 minutes. It will rise like a souffle, then fall when taken out of oven.

Lightly dust with powdered sugar and serve with maple sugar or fresh fruit preserves.
