If a funnel cake and a quiche had a baby . . . . AKA: Grammy Kay's German Oven Pancake
This is the best way to start a Sunday morning except for the pumkin scones which come in at a close 2nd place. But this German oven pancake is much easier to make! Little Trevor (5-years-old) can pretty much do it all himself, minus the oven work.
In a glass pie dish place 2 Tbls of butter and throw into a cold oven. Turn oven on to 425 degrees.
In the meantime, in a large bowl mix:
2 Tbls melted butter (this is separate from the 2 Tbls already in the pie dish)
1 cup milk (any milk works fine but contributes their unique flavors; we have used soy, rice, hemp and cow's milk)
1/2 cup unbleached bread flour
1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
**For flours, we like King Arthur's or Bob's Red Mill brands**
When butter in pie dish is melted (approx 5 min) carefully pour batter into hot pie dish and put back in oven. Bake for 18 minutes.
You can top yours with lemon and powered sugar (shown in pictures), fruit or maple syrup.
We cut ours into fourths and everyone gets one quarter. This is technically a double batch so feel free to adjust as necessary. This seems to be a perfect batch for a family of 4!
