German Pancakes



We used to have to go to a restaurant to get our German Pancake fix, until one Sunday about 13 years ago our local newspaper printed the recipe, and my husband has been fixing them for me ever since!

Ingredients:
1/2 stick butter (unsalted)
4 eggs
3/4 cup 2% or whole milk
3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tbl sugar
2 tsp vanilla (optional, but I recommend it)
1 tsp cinnamon (optional, but I recommend it)
1 tsp nutmeg
lemon wedges and powdered sugar

Method:
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees
Put your skillet in the oven to pre-heat (use cast iron if you have it or a high sided pan)
Add butter while the pan is pre-heating
Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk until beaten
Add flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and mix till just blended (don't overmix)
Pour the batter into the pan with the melted butter
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, keep an eye on it
This recipe makes enough for 1 pancake (2 servings), you can double the recipe for a thicker pancake or make two thinner ones (we like them on the thinner side)
Cut into slices and serve with lemon slices and top with powdered sugar
