Our favourite breakfast

Hi All,

Today has been a cooking day. My father and his lady love are visiting and we've been feeding them well. It started this morning with one of my favourite easy breakfasts. It's called a German Pancake in the original recipe book that I don't even know that I've got anymore. It's fairly impressive. If you'd like to make it a bit healthier, use whole wheat flour, but it won't puff up as much.

The above photo used 8 eggs.

Preheat oven to 350F. While oven is heating, add 3-6 tsp of butter into a baking pan and melt butter so that it's bubbly in the pan. Keep pan in heat until ready to pour batter but be careful not to burn the butter.

Recipe per person:

2 eggs
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup flour
sugar to taste
chopped fruit to taste (frozen is fine and doesn't need to thaw)
vanilla to taste

Whisk eggs, milk, and flour together. Add chopped fruit and stir. Pour into hot bubbly pan, ensuring fruit is somewhat evenly distributed. Bake 20-30 minutes or until edges are puffy and golden. The batter should be thin, almost like crepe batter.

Serve drizzled with maple syrup, fruit sauce, or powdered sugar. It will start to fall as soon as it's removed from the oven so make sure everyone is seated for the "oooh, aaaahhh" effect.

That's what I would call a Yorkshire pudding with fruit in it!
