Recipe of the Week

I'm trying to make my blogging a little bit more
consistent. I don't really want to do the whole
Music Monday, Worldess Wednesday thing.
So I'm doing what works for me.

So here we are! On this beautiful
Tuesday morning, my recipe this week
is for:

Basic German Pancakes
(Deutsche Pfannkuchen)

1/2 c sifted flour 4 eggs
2 tsp sugar 1/2 c milk
1/4 tsp salt 6tbsp butter (approximately)

Sift flour, sugar and salt together. Using a beater,
whip eggs until light and frothy; beat in milk.
Turn flour mixture into beaten egg and, still using beater,
whip until you have a smooth batter.
Melt 2tbsp butter (or enough to cover the bottom of the pan)
in a 10" or 12" skillet, and pour in just enough batter
to cover bottom with a thin layer.
As soon as you pour batter, tilt and rotate the pan so
the batter will run over it evenly. Cook over moderate heat
until pancakes are golden brown on underside; turn and
brown second side. Remove to platter.

*Recipe from The German Cookbook by Mimi Sheraton

These may be my new favorite pancakes.
I topped mine with a little bit of cinnamon
sugar and folded them up. You could do the syrup thing
or add some fruit compotes, either way-
these will be awesome.
