Last weekend, my parents were in town to celebrate my daughters 7th birthday, as well as my 8 year olds baptism. Needless to say, it was a big weekend for us!!
On Saturday, my mom woke up and said she wanted to make a recipe her friend had made for my dad and her, and loved. It was these German pancakes. She got all the ingredients, used my favorite cast iron skillet (seriously, best pan EVER!!), and whipped these up. I must admit, since my hubby and I had never seen or heard of these, we were a little standoffish when we were watching these bake. The way they raised on the sides, weren’t even, etc. However, mom assured us that these would be tasty.
While the pancake was cooking, she chopped up some fresh blackberries, strawberries, and bananas. You can use any fruit desired, that just happened to be the combo we all wanted.
When the timer went off, out came the iron skillet and we all dove in. Even the kids, although they added syrup to theirs rather than the powdered sugar. Not only was this the perfect morning breakfast, but it took no time to prepare. It wasn’t overly sweet, the fresh fruit was amazing, and it made tons. The texture was soft and almost similar to cooked egg, and with the slight sprinkle of nutmeg, powdered sugar, and fresh fruit……I highly recommend trying this, at least once!!
Thanks mom for a delicious breakfast!
