I have been making a similar German pancake recipe for years and it's a favorite of both my children. However, I use 2 10" pie plates instead of the cast iron skillet. Much easier to handle and you just serve it on a plate without needing to cut it up first. It's make a beautiful presentation.

It's definitely something different. Sounds good and I will definitely be trying it.
