    Made it again following directions this time. Pulled it early 'cause I thought it was getting brown enough on the outside. Puffed up nicely this time but still didn't get the convoluted look of your picture.
    Used butter chunks to float on top of the batter this time instead of melted butter which sank last time.
    Here's a pic with whole cranberry syrup.

    Tastes good but didn't puff for me. Think it split all the way around the sides and fell before it was time to take it out of the oven. Even beat two of the eggs to soft peaks as Barbet suggested to make more loft.
    I have the same question as pinkeggmonk. Are the three tablespoons butter melted, softened, or hard little cubes?

    I've made this for about 35 years. If you want more loft, you might separate out two of the eggs, beat them to soft peaks and then gently fold into the flour/egg batter. I serve it with icy cold strawberries and if I want to get really over the top, with whipped cream on top! Try to beat that for an easy breakfast dish that is sure to wow your guests.

    I've made a German Pancake before, but never in a cast-iron skillet. I loved the suggestions of adding apples and the vanilla and spice mixture. Thanks for reminding me of this wonderful and easy breakfast.

    wow, you guys really love this recipe!
    you all should try this Finnish version of this pancake here is the recipe:

    Pannu Kakku (Finnish Oven Pancake)
    5 eggs
    2 cups whole milk
    1-1/4 cups flour
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
    Directions: In a large bowl, beat eggs with a fork, wire wisk or egg beater. Gradually add 1/2 cup of milk. Add remaining milk, flour, salt and sugar. Beat until smooth.
    Melt butter in a 13x9-inch glass pan by placing it in the oven until the butter melts and pour mixture into it. Do not mix the butter in. Bake at 450°F for 30 minutes or until top becomes brown.( i used a 10.5 inch cast iron instead)
    Serve plain, with syrup, or covered with berries. (i used powered sugar)


    Click the Pannu Kakku pic on my page to see the finished recipe. it is huge and filling!
