The basket contained other items that are sure gonna taste GOOOD.....
Altho this pattern is more modern than I am used to,
I just LOVE it....
THIS goofy looking thing is a GERMAN PANCAKE..
Cooked in a 9" cast iron skillet in a 425 oven..
This one was very thin, which is the way I love them.
It was ALMOST like a crepe...
If you use a smaller pan, it will be thicker.
I am unsure just how you are supposed to eat one of these... and I'm not at all sure WHY I put it on this small plate !? I guess just to show you how large this thang is !!
Pretty little golden napkin rings..
The tiny vintage BLUE WINDMIL pitcher Mr. Sweet bought for me years and years ago..
...I just sprinkled with POWDERED SUGAR and TART RED CHERRIES...
OH HONEY !!
!/2 CUP FLOUR
1 TABLESPOON MELTED BUTTER
1/2 CUP MILK
dash of salt and cinnamon
425 for 15 minutes (ck. it for brownness)
"Oh I just love german pancakes. If you mix all of it in the blender and get it really frothy, then put in the iron skillet, it will roll up the sides of the pan and make a huge pancake that you then can vill with fruit or just more melted butter and powdered sugar and slice into wedges. They are just the best. Your new dishes are wonderful too. " Hugs, Marty
My thanks, Marty...
Just guess what WE are having for dinner tonight !! Do you think we would be considered
RED NECK if we had Blackberry Wine with it ??
Another sweet lady just emailed me to tell us a good way to eat them:
The reason I wanted to comment--the German pancakes! We're German--immigrated when I was 2 years old. I ate those pancakes growing up and they are one of my favorite breakfast foods from childhood. I haven't had them or seen them in many years. The way we ate them was to spread jam or jelly on the flat pancake (my favorite plain old grape), then roll it up and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Oh my--I'm going to make some with your recipe! Thanks so much for posting it. Best to you and your Mr. Sweet for many more years together!Ilka LazaroffClifton, VA=
Thanks so much, ILKA.....I like GRAPE jelly, too !
