Aunt Edith's Baked Pancake

Rated as 4.56 out of 5 Stars

"'MY AUNT made a mighty breakfast that revolved around 'The Big Pancake'. I always enjoyed watching as she poured the batter into her huge iron skillet, then baked the confection to perfection in the oven. 'The delicious result defied description! It was a sort of combination pancake, waffle and cruller. 'Sprinkled with powdered sugar and garnished with wedges of lemon, this crispy, golden-brown treat--which covered a dinner plate!--was as delightful to the eye as it was to the palate.'"

I loved this recipe! I did make one change though which is why I only gave it 4 stars. I added a 1/4 tsp of almond extract and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract.

It just tastes like eggs, and who wants powdered sugar on their eggs? Maybe it would be better as a savory dish with sausage in it or maybe cheese? At least I didn't go to a lot of trouble and t...

I try to reserve five star reviews for recipes that I think are worthy - recipes that go above and beyond the call of duty - recipes that are more than just tasty. This recipe gets 5 stars. He...

This turned out great. My grandpa used to make us pancakes like this but he first fried apples with butter, cinnamon and sugar then poured the pancake batter on top, baked it and served it with...

This is a great version of a German pancake! I make it almost every weekend. It is delicious as is, but for a variation, I add 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp cinnamon. Fantastic!

We really liked this. My husband has diabetes so I used WW Pastry Flour. I had some frozen strawberries that needed to be used so I chopped some up small. I also added pecans and a few dried cra...

Great pancakes! I doubled the recipe and we made 2 of them for 3 people, and they turned out just like the picture...and were deilcious! We used a spoonful of homemade choke cherry jam as a dip ...

I use these ingredients in the exact amounts listed, but put the pancake together a bit differently. I turn the oven to 400 and put the pat of butter in an 8 by 8 square baking pan and stick it...

I've made many of this type of pancake and never enjoyed them. THIS recipe is the one that I discovered and stuck with! Easy as can be, very eggy tasting which is what we love! I don't need to s...
