Hubby and I frequent Elmer's Restaurant, an old-fashioned breakfast place in Eugene, Oregon. Elmer's serves this enormous German pancake, light and fluffy, dusted with sugar and drizzled with fresh lemon juice and a pat of butter.
I have been wanting to make this at home, as a special treat.
And I succeeded thanks to fellow blogger's recipe at the following link:
She calls it a Bismark/Popover
It is absolute divine. Here is her recipe (with very minor variations) for those of you too lazy to go search.
1/2 C flour
1/2 C milk (hers is 2%; I had whole milk)
pinch of salt
pinch of nutmeg
2 or more T of sweet butter
Fresh lemon wedges
Heat over to 450degree F. Whisk the eggs with the flour, milk, salt and preferably fresh nutmeg.
Melt 2 Tablespoot of butter in a 10" cast=iron skillet over medium heat.
Pour batter into skillet and place immediately in the hot oven.
Bake until the pancake is golden and fluffy, about ten-twelve minutes.
Transfer the pancake on a serving dish and sprinkle the confectioner's sugar and a squeeze of lemon.
Serves two generously.
Enjoy for breakfast, or for dessert!
