German Oven Pancakes

Oh my goodness, this recipe!! Being Hungarian, I wasn’t a pancake fan; I grew up on crepes. But this? Topped with berries, pudding, yogurt, whipped cream, jam, custard, on its own, syrup….I could eat this for days in a row. Ehem, perhaps I have…

This recipe originally appeared in my cozy murder mystery Feta and the Fat Bastard (Whine & Cheese Cozy Mystery Series, Book 3). (click to order directly from my publisher, Open Books)

Cozy Mystery Book Series Recipe: German Oven Pancakes

The consistency is like a custard or almost cheese-like, and the flavour is simple but yet so good.  I hope you enjoy as much as I do.

You will need:

9×13 inch glass baking dish works best

4 large eggs

2 cups milk

1 teaspoon almond extract

1 and 1/3 cups flour

5 tablespoons white granulated sugar

cooking spray or about 1 tablespoon oil

Heat oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine all the ingredients and blend well with electric mixer. Spray (or oil) a large casserole dish with cooking spray, then pour batter into dish and bake in oven for about 20-25 minutes until the edges are puffy and a nice golden colour. Remove from oven and dust with powdered sugar, then serve immediately; did I mention that the consistency is like a firm custard?

Slice and serve with a nice fruit topping, maple syrup or a squeeze of lemon. Keeps well in fridge- reheat slices for a minute or less in the microwave.

Enjoy, my friends.
