German Oven Pancake

The other night I needed to go to Plan B for dinner, and Plan B was “breakfast food.” I was really craving pancakes, but every recipe I found called for buttermilk, which I didn’t have on hand. Then I came across this recipe. Boy, this dish is very impressive when it comes out of the oven! It’s so easy and husband and I thought it was very tasty. My kids, surprisingly, didn’t love it. It isn’t overly sweet, so maybe that was the reason? I think next time I make it, I will add more sugar. I topped my pancake with blueberries, strawberries, and a dusting of powdered sugar. YUM!
