GERMAN OVEN PANCAKE
What you need:
1/2 c milk
1/2 cup flour, sifted
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp granulated sugar
2-3 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)
powdered sugar (optional)
What to do:
-Place medium skillet in oven when cold and preheat oven and skillet to 450°F. If you have a convection oven, set it at 425°F (the pancakes rise even higher on the convection setting).
– In a large bowl, lightly beat the eggs with a whisk or fork. Stir in the milk, salt and sugar. Add the flour to the egg mixture, a big spoonful at a time as you continue to whisk. Be careful not to over-mix, to keep the pancake light and fluffy.
– Add butter to heated pan in oven to melt. Swirl butter to coat pan and pour about 2/3 of it into batter mixture. Combine well.
– Pour the batter into the pre-heated skillet (this will yield a more golden brown, “puffier” pancake). Bake about 15 minutes, until the edges are golden. Check your pancake at the 13 minute mark. Add dipping of your choice for serving and dust with powdered sugar for garnish.
