Puff Pancake (aka German Pancake)

4 servings

Can be topped with just about anything. Powdered sugar, apples sautéed in butter, brown sugar and cinnamon or fresh fruit.


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 cup flour


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Melt the butter in a 9-inch glass pie dish in the oven as it is being preheated.

Combine the eggs, milk, extract and lemon zest in a blender; blend until well combined. Add the flour quickly, 1/3 cup at a time, blending just until combined. Pour into the waiting pie plate in which the butter is very hot. Bake at 425 degrees F for approximately 20 minutes.
