Easy Oven Baked German Puff Pancakes

This impressive pancake is baked in the oven, and rises like a soufflé, baking into a light airy pancake with sides. It couldn’t be more simple to make, I found this in my recipe file with a list of 3 ingredients and a single line of directions (I’ve add a few more details here, but it’s really that simple). Try this recipe the next time you want to serve up something spectacular.

  1. This goes really well with Nutella and some powdered sugar. I made it for my sister when she came to visit and she wanted it almost every morning.
