This is also called a German Pancake and it’s very easy. It comes out light and buttery, dusted with powdered sugar and lemon. You can garnish this any way you like.
This recipe serves 3 -4 people. It calls for simple ingredients that you probably already have. It can be served for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dessert.
Heat oven to 450. Put a cast iron skillet or any baking dishes you’re using in the oven to get them hot. Add 2 tblsps butter to the cast iron skillet and a tsp or so to any other baking dishes.
Once the pans heat up and the butter melts, remove from oven & swirl the melted butter to coat the sides.
* Add the melted butter to the batter in the blender. Return baking pans to the oven for a minute.
* For the batter: In a blender, quickly blend 4 eggs, 3/4 cup milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, the 2 tblsp melted butter, and 2 tblsp sugar. Now sift in 3/4 cup all purpose flour, a dash of salt, a pinch of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp baking powder. Blend for 30 seconds, scrape down the sides, the batter should be smooth.
Let the batter rest for about 15 minutes. You can mix the batter first, then heat the oven.
Remove the hot pans from the oven, fill 1/2 way with the batter, it should sizzle a little.
Return to the oven and bake for 15 to 18 minutes until poofy and golden. The pouf sinks as they cool, it’s supposed to. Serve with powdered sugar, fruit, and a squeeze of lemon or tangerine juice. Yum!
(For a smaller serving, reduce amounts to 1/2 c flour, 1/2 c milk, 1/4 tsp baking powder, 1-2 tblsp butter, 2 eggs and only one skillet.)
