  • In a medium bowl, prepare pancake batter by blending flour, 2 eggs, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 cup milk.

  • Heat a lightly greased griddle or medium skillet over medium heat. Pour approximately 1/8 of the batter onto the griddle. Flip with a metal spatula when bubbles begin to form, and cook until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter, making 8 pancakes.

  • Place applesauce in a medium bowl, and mix in raisins. Spread the applesauce mixture over one side of each pancake. Roll pancakes jelly roll style, and cut in half vertically. Arrange pancake halves cut side down in a medium baking dish.

  • In a small bowl, mix remaining egg, salt and milk with sugar and almonds. Pour mixture over the pancakes.

  • Dot pancakes with butter, and bake 40 minutes in the preheated oven. Serve warm.

Notes: Tasty! For easier prep I added 1 egg to the batter (thinner pancakes--no slicing necessary) and used 1/4 cup less milk in the almond topping (5min less time in oven). Try 1/3 cup batter per pancake--roll pan to spread batter for large thin 6-8" diameter crepe-like pancake. 1/8-1/4 cup applesauce filling per pancake. I added a few drops of almond extract into the applesauce filling since I had no almonds on hand and a touch of cinnamon. Served with maple syrup for a deeply flavored breakfast that is not too rich. The crispy edges on the pancakes and puffy juicy insides make an exotic almost French cooking-esque contrast in your mouth. Wow.

This was not what I expected. My husband said it wasn't anything special and y son said it had an odd taste. I confused at how this was supposed to turn out. The pancakes were small and thick and didn't stay rolled and everything was runny when I went to put it on the place. I gave it two stars because at least my husband ate all the food in his plate. I'm disappointed I spent the time making this.

The batter was too thick and hence the rolls were too thick.Some guidance on consistency would have been helpful. Also the directions on how to slice the rolls were unclear and not even sure the purpose of it. The remaining batter poured over the cakes held everything together. First time "builder" of German pancakes. BTW in spite of thickness they were still very yummie. Husband of Mrslex responding.

I really loved this recipe I added cinnamon and fresh nutmeg because I love them. and left out the applesauce and raisins. I used hot maple surup with a small bit of bacon fat. Wonderful
