Menu Description: "Oven baked. Dusted with powdered sugar, served with lemon and butter."

It was in 1953 when Les Highet and Erma Huenke opened their first Original Pancake House in Portland, Oregon using traditional pancake recipes handed down through the generations. The German Pancake is baked at high temperature in a skillet where it puffs up like crazy in the oven, then settles down when it comes out. It's dusted with powdered sugar, and serve with whipped butter and lemon wedges on the side—delicious. A cast-iron skillet works best for this recipe.

To get the most puff, make sure eggs, milk, and cream are at room temperature before you start.

Awesome! My wife and son were probably just being nice when they said it was better than the Pancake House, but I sure did like it and found it very comparable. I did not have a cast iron skillet (unfortunately) but I did have a nice thick non-stick skillet and left it in the oven while preheating so it was piping hot when I poured in the batter and it came out great.
