Reruns again? Sorry for the reruns, but the new year has caught me with a busy schedule, interrupted by snowy days. This snowy morning I made a Dairy Hollow House German Baked Pancake also known as a Puff Pancake. Served with sauteed apples in brown butter and maple syrup, these were great!  So I am going to share the simple recipe with you all.

From the Dairy Hollow House Cookbook by Crescent Dragonwagon

German Baked Pancake

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Beat together

3 large eggs

3/4 cut unbleached white flour

3/4 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla or lemon extract ( I use almond)

When very smooth, set aside  while you melt

1 1/2 tablespoons butter

in a 12-inch heavy cast-iron skillet. When the skillet is quite hot, pour in batter and put skillet in oven. Bake for 15 min. at 450 degrees; lower oven to 350 degrees  and bake another 10 min. Fill with fruit sauteed in butter with a bit of maple or brown sugar. Or just sprinkle with powdered sugar. Enjoy!
