This recipe was brought home by my brother who made it in his Home Ec class his freshman year.  He liked it so much he made it for my parents one weekend and they enjoyed it just as much my mom decided to make it for us this Memorial Weekend here at the cottage.

I’ll have to agree that this pancake is delicious.  My mom brought up the memory when my sister and I were young, when on vacation, we would go out for breakfast and order a German Pancake, similar to this, and an omelet and the four of us would share.  This was before the brother came along.


German Pancake


½ cup flour

½ cup milk

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

2 Tbsp butter

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Measure flour, milk, eggs and vanilla in a bowl.

Beat well with electric mixer.

Place 2 Tbsp butter in a 9-inch pie pan.

Place pan in oven uintil butter melts.  (Don’t let it burn)

Take pan out of oven and pour mixture into pan.

Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve immediately with topping.


3 apples, peeled, cored and sliced

1/3 cup white sugar

¼ tsp cinnamon

2 Tbsp butter

Mix apples, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
