German Pancake

This is a great quick breakfast that I like to make when I'm out of bacon and sausage or any of the other boyfriend breakfast staples. This seems to keep him happy in the absence of cured meat.

German Pancake
Adapted from The Joy of Cooking
Serves 4 or 1 - 2 boyfriends

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
pinch of salt
4 T butter

Whisk milk and egg together and mix with flour, sugar and salt (do not over mix). Melt butter in a large (10 - 12") cast iron pan over medium heat. Add batter to pan and let cook one minute on the stove top before placing in the oven. Cook in the oven 15 - 20 minutes. When finished cooking, dust with powdered sugar and serve immediately in the pan as the pancake will deflate very quickly. Enjoy!

Welcome to the Foodie Blog Roll! German Pancake are delicious...but I don't think that my boyfriend would accept if for breakfast unless there was a huge plate of bacon or pork roll on the side. :-)

Hi Michele - sounds like our boyfriends have a lot in common. Let me emphasize that this is only acceptable if there are absolutely no meat options in the house!
