We love these especially with lemon juice. Around here they call this a German pancake! Whatever you like to call it, it is one great breakfast.

I have made this for my family since we tried it on the 1980's. We have it with powdered sugar and lemon juice. Yum!!

This was easy and fantastic. I didn't change a thing except for using lemon wedges. After taking it out of the oven, I just sprinkled powder sugar on it and served it with a berry compote. Excellent

In my house, these are called Dutch Babies, and we don't put any sugar in the batter.

The first time I made it our family just loved it. It's been a favorite breakfast ever since. Easy recipe delicious, our family just likes maple syrup on it. Goes great with scrambled eggs or just fresh fruit.

I did not like this recipe at all. The pancake is too dense for my taste and not sweet enough. I sprinkled chocolate chips on top to add a little more flavor and sweetness. I won't make it again.

I actually used 1 less egg in this recipe. With 3, it's a little too eggy for me. :)

I've been making my own redition of the above, using egg whites plus one egg. My guess is that egg beaters would work fine. I can hardly wait to try this recipe.

will the old-world puff pancake work with egg beaters?
