I LOVE BREAKFAST..

GERMAN PANCAKES
I've posted them before but they are worthy of another round.
I'm busy, getting ready to start on a
ROOM RE-DO....
so I've gone back in time for a favorite post.

It is ONE BIG PANCAKE,
cooked either in a regular, round CAKE pan
or, as I did,
in a cast iron skillet..
It rises...
then falls into
light and delicious ! 

They are thin...almost like a CREPE...
and you can add just ANYthing to them to make a really special treat.
I hear MAPLE SYRUP is a really good choice...
(Mr. Sweet's favorite
I'm thinking
creme cheese and pecans, with a tiny bit of crushed PINEAPPLE..
*SIGH 

Sweet cousins gave us these pretty dishes, napkins, napkin rings
and I love using them.

The market, PINK flowers look so pretty with the dishes.
I have NO flowers this summer (8/11) so I have to 
*get my flower fix* from the market..

Since CHERRIES are one of my very favorite fruits,
this is what I added. to our pancakes.
Sweet, yet tart and,
O SO DELICIOUS 
I buy the cans of TART CHERRIES (not the pie filling...never the pie filling)
add a tiny bit of sugar, a little flour and water...
gently boil for a few minutes...they will thicken a little.

I think the dishes look....DANISH..SWEDISH..
maybe even a little GERMAN..?

The delightful pancake looks good on the blue.

Sweet and spicy apples are good, rolled in the pancakes, so I've heard.  


1/4 cup butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
6 eggs, lightly beaten
1/8 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a medium baking dish. In a medium bowl, mix flour, milk, eggs and salt. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Bake on center rack in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until golden brown 
Then, add whatever fruit you like and sprinkles of delicious, white, fluffy POWDERED SUGAR
NOTE..I used my large cast iron skillet to bake this and it worked beautifully.


Love and kisses 
bj

Yum. You must be the best cook. Can I come live with you?

Robin said...

You are always cooking up something delicious...and today is no exception. Yum!
I have made a copy of your recipe and shall make this pancake for my husband and I this Sunday.

Wishing you and yours a pinkishly beautiful weekend.

Bj, they look so hummy. These would make for a great brunch idea with a group of family or friends. Just build your own pancake with all the trimming. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my french style clock. You said that you pinned it, what did you mean by that? I left a message on my blog on your suggestion. Check it out. Added something to your recipe for no bake chocolate cookies...what did you think Decor. Lady

Love your dishes, as always a beautiful table sweet friend. Just beautiful. Love your new header photos as well. So special.

Have a gorgeous weekend sweetie. Many hugs and much love from Phoenix, Sherry

WOW German pancakes. I have to ask my hubby if her ever had these. He grew up on his grandmothers German cooking. He still talks about it often. I never got to meet her and wish I had some of her recipes.

Well, I'm tickled PINK that you've gone back in time, since I missed this post the first go 'round. It looks YUMMY & although I've seen & heard about such big pancakes, I've never tried making one. I sure will now! I even have the lg. cast iron skillet to do it just like you did.

Thanks for the tip about sweetening the tart cherries, too. I'll try that soon. I grew up with a yard surrounded by sour cherries & I have wonderful, fond memories of my Mom making pies & cobblers. NONE of them tasted like that canned pie filling stuff. Your idea may be closer to the real flavor.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE seeing all your GRAND GRANDS!!! You are very blessed, BJ & you bless each of us when you share your world.

fondly,
Rett

ps. Praying right along with your TX governor today

Judi said...

Hi BJ *hugs*
Oh yum yum yum..yum yum! I love pancakes like that.. They could be like Finnish pancakes too. They look so delish with your cherries on them.
Your blue dishes look like they could be Finnish also...

I love your sailboat mugs...
thank you for sharing and have a great day!

Hmmmmm--you've inspired me to "get into the kitchen" and whip up something good. Your pancakes look delicious. Have a lovely weekend. Mickie :)

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Love the blue BJ! Sounds like a perfect way to start the day! I've made Dutch Baby with a good squeeze of fresh lemon juice and powdered sugar. Haven't had one in a while...:@)

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, dear BJ.

Yum! These look delicious. May I come by for some for breakfast tomorrow morning?

Sarah said...

Big smiles on your math lesson in the header. Too cute!

German pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast dishes. We are expecting a house guest next weekend. I think I'll make German pancakes. ;-)

Hi BJ...

Mmmm...Girl, you always make me hungry! Hehe! I love pancakes and will definitely have to give your recipe a try! I like peanut butter on my pancakes...hehe!..but cherries sound heavenly as well! I'm also thinking that blackberries would be yummy! Like you said...you could add any fruit and they would be GOOD!!!

Love your new blue dishes! I think they look Scandanavian or Norwegian as well! Ohhh...and I spied that darling little pitcher with the sailboat too...love that!!!

Well dear friend, thank you so much for sharing your awesome pancake recipe and beautiful table with us for the Sunday Favorites party this week! What a treat!!! Ohhh...I'm sooo curious as to what room you are redoing...DO TELL? Hehe! Enjoy the weekend, BJ!

I love pancakes and I really don't cook them enough. I think we might have a pancake feast next weekend!

What a delicious post! We had blueberry pancakes this morning and now that I am looking at your pictures, I think I want them again! I will be trying your recipe.

Vee said...

So these are not what are called Dutch babies? I must try one tomorrow and see how it turns out. I'm up for something besides peanut butter toast. ☺

The blue dishes and linens look so nautical and cool. Cool, cool, cool...did you feel that cool breeze float by? Sometimes we just have to trick ourselves, I know.

Pondside said...

I remember this one - soooo good looking! I sure would like to sit at your table.

Porch Days said...

We had a downpour that lasted all night. Mr. B remarked that people in West Texas would love to have that much rain. Nancy

eileeninmd said...

The pancakes sounds yummy. I will try them soon. I love your blue dishes and the tablescape. Very pretty. Wonderful photos, have a great week!

LV said...

Breakfast has always been my favorite meal. When growing up, we needed to make it through working in the fields. I still enjoy it everyday. I try to eat more healthy now, but biscuits and gravy, big slice of country ham, homemade preserves and coffee cannot be beat.

Maria said...

They look deeeeelicious!
Your tablesetting is lovely also... very homey, warm and inviting.
I love satisfying my "flower fix" too!
Time to visit the garden and see what's popping up and maybe add some of those gerbera daisies that I spied in your photos!
Happy new week to you!

Kathleen Grace said...

I love your blues.

My Blue Monday is here.

Joy said...

Looks so good and what pretty dishes! Have a great week!

kitty said...

What a fabulous breakfast! I have a recipe from a Farm Journal cookbook that's for German Pancakes, also. Some of my kids would request it for their birthday breakfast.

anne said...

Yum! This looks so good especially with the spicy apples and on the blue and white dishes! Gorgeous!
