    German Pancakes
    (Yield 2 9-inch pancakes)

    4 eggs
    1 T sugar
    1/2 t salt
    2/3 c flour, sifted
    2/3 c milk
    2 tablespoons soft butter

    Heat oven to 400°F. Butter two 9-inch cake pans. Put eggs in blender container, cover and process until light yellow in color. Remove cover and add remaining ingredients; process until smooth. Divide and pour into prepared pans and bake 20 minutes. Serve with powdered sugar and butter, raspberry syrup, maple syrup or fresh berries if you like.

    Next time I make these I'm going to add two more eggs and a few more minutes to the bake time, and hope fresh raspberries will be in season. [​IMG]

    I make German Apple Pancakes, pretty much the same recipe only you saute apple slices in butter, cinnamon and sugar before pouring on the pancake batter. On special occasions (or when I remember) I will sprinkle some frozen blueberries on the apples before adding the batter.
    So good!

    Thanks @wyoDreamer! I will certainly have to try adding the apples. I guess it's a matter of preference but do you use green or red apples? Peeled, I'm guessing?

    I use red - or yellow. Yellow delicious are my favorite. I don't use the granny smith apples for much of anything. I don't like to have to add sugar to sweeten them up, when I could use a sweet apple to begin with.

    I have made them with the apples peeled and unpeeled. The apples turn nice and soft but the peels tend to stay tough and when using apple slices the peels add a kinda not so nice texture to the pancakes. If you just dice the apples it is ok with the peels as they are somewhat smaller pieces.
    We prefer the apples peeled.
    I just eat the peels while I am cooking the pancakes. [​IMG]
