Rustic charm ... German glory.
German pancakes (also called Dutch Babies, or "Pannekoeken" ) are oven baked egg pancakes - sort of hybrid between a traditional American pancake, omelet and soufflé. The beauty of this pancake literally rises before your eyes. Admire it in all its puffy German glory right out of the oven because it doesn't last long!
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place butter in 9" cast iron skillet, (or any oven-proof round pan with approximately 2" sides) . Place in cold oven and allow butter to heat to sizzling.
In the meantime, whisk together remaining ingredients in a medium bowl (or in the blender). When butter is melted and sizzling (about the time it takes for oven to heat up), pour batter into skillet and bake approximately 20 to 25 minutes or until puffed and golden brown (bake until the pancake puffs up around the edges - it may not puff evenly every time).
Once out of the oven, the pancake will begin to deflate - so enjoy the beauty quickly!
