German Pancake

November 17, 2009

A couple of Sundays ago, I came home from running cold and famished. I had a bunch of eggs in the fridge and a recipe for this German pancake bookmarked (as an added bonus it also required the oven which would nicely warm up the apartment). I quickly whipped up the batter and popped it in the oven.  When it came out it was super puffy. C and I quickly divvied it up; he sprinkled his with icing sugar and I drenched mine in maple syrup. It was very eggy but tasty. A good, quick Sunday morning breakfast. If only there had been bacon…
