Here is the simple little recipe.
German pancake aka Baby German.
1 cup of milk
1 cup of flour
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a medium cast iron skillet(or oven proof heavy skillet)
melt the butter in the skillet in the oven before filling with the batter. This does not take long so do not burn the butter.
In a blender add the four eggs and beat till light and frothy
Add the milk and blend in. Then add the flour and salt and mix until well blended.
Remove the skillet from your heated oven and pour the batter over the melted butter. Replace in the oven for 20 minutes. The pancake will be puffed and golden.
That is all there is to it. A nice simple way to serve is to squeeze fresh lemon juice over the pancake add your syrup and sprinkle powered sugar.
Of course you can be as decadent as you like. In summer fresh Oregon strawberries are must with a dollop of sour cream. You can add any fruit or jam of choice and then top of whip cream and on and on whatever your pleasure.
When we peeled out of bed this morning the ground was frozen and white. It had snowed and then froze so a cold looking scene out there. Now a couple of hours later it snowing again. The flakes are huge and so heavy and wet so of course they will melt as soon as they land. It is so pretty though like being in a snow globe. Our weather is to be windy and a mixed bag of rain and snow for the next few days and the mountains are to get a couple feet of snow. The snow enthusiast's are going to be loving it.
Hubby is home today but at the moment is on a bid. He has a couple of projects now in the works. Good as we surely need the money. Actually this February was good for us. Hopefully as spring approaches we will continue to get busier and busier.
My house chores await me and I have a couple of business call to attend to so I will leave the blog now.
Enjoy whatever the weather throws your way today. For the most of the country it really is not pleasant. How about staying in and baking something wonderful, seems that bolsters one's spirit as the house fills with mouth watering smells.
