German Pancakes (aka, Dutch Babies)

If you have never had or made German Pancakes, also known as Dutch Babies, you must add them to your "must-try" list! This tried & true recipe from Chef Andrew Zimmern, found on Food & Wine, is absolutely wonderful.
"This simple eggy pancake with a crisp edge rises in the skillet like an oversize popover. It's typically eaten for breakfast (directly from the skillet), but fast enough to whip up for dessert after dinner."  Food & Wine

My sister made these delicious pancakes for a Sunday brunch during my visit to Alaska. She tripled (maybe even quadrupled) the recipe for our large family. She used a cast iron skillet and two round, 9 inch cake pans. She cut them in quarters for serving.   

I love breakfast for dinner - these pancakes are so easy to make, they will be on our breakfast and dinner menus for years to come.

These pancakes are great served with many toppings. We dusted ours with powdered sugar and topped them with fresh blueberries, leaving out the almonds. These would be terrific topped with raspberries, strawberries, ...warm maple syrup. Candied /toasted pecans or walnuts are great too. Enjoy!  

Thanks for stopping by!

My German grandmother made something similar and we ate the pancake with applesauce on top.
