Good Eats: German Pancakes and Handpicked Flowers

When you wake up on a Sunday morning, there is little else to do but enjoy your family. Pajamas and tousled hair are all the rage, and the perfect look for a day spent snuggled up with a book,  watching a movie, or playing the mandatory game of hide-and-seek. *On a side note: some may say that I am a hide-and-seek aficionado. I know all the secret spots, and I have no qualms with outsmarting a 5 year old. So, watch yo-self.

Our favorite guilty pleasure breakfast is the delectable German pancake. It is fast, not at all fussy, and requires a mere 15 minute cook time whose magic can only be compared to the classic rabbit-in-a-hat trick that leaves you utterly baffled:  insert batter-filled pan into oven, and remove to reveal a golden brown delicacy. Abracadabra! It’s chemistry. And it’s amazing.

The only requirement is that while this bad boy cooks, you simply must assist your child in picking flowers from the garden. And why wouldn’t you?

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Throw two tablespoons of butter into large cast-iron skillet.  Place in oven and remove when melted.

Combine remaining ingredients in bowl and add to skillet.  Cook for 25-30 minutes.

Top with anything your heart desires.

If that doesn’t make your world go round, I don’t know what will.

    • They are amazing to cook in, and I love it because they can go straight into the oven. You just have to be careful if you’re using it on the stove-top, because it heats really fast. Many a grilled cheese have been lost because of this.
