"Puffy oven-baked buttery pancake. It's SO easy! You may never make traditional pancakes again. Pour your favorite syrup over it, or just dust powdered sugar on top. There's not much need to add more butter because it's already baked onto the top and forms a delicious salty and buttery crust."

Even though I'm German, I don't recognize this recipe but I have to say it is simple, delicious and filling. I half the recipe and bake in a small cast iron skillet right in the oven. Delicious as is or served with a light drizzle of syrup. I have also made this, sans the vanilla and cinnamon, as a vegetable pancake with sautéed mushrooms and onions. This makes much more than one serving LOL!

Egg-cellent and super easy to make. It's going to disappoint if you're expecting anything like an American-style pancake. The eggs give it an entirely different texture. We had ours with some homemade mulberry syrup (with whole mulberries) mixed with regular maple syrup and with a dollop of sour cream. Amazingly decadent!

i've made variations of this, called Dutch Pancake, Old World Pancake, etc...can do lots of things with it; it's great with apples too.
