Cold Food

add to kirtsy

I have a cold. The good news is that tomorrow is Friday and my roommate is gone for the weekend, so my house can go to hell while I lay around drinking orange juice and tea, and I won't feel any guilt about it. Perfect timing!

An easy dinner when I'm not feeling well - a golden, puffy, beautiful German Pancake. Oh how I love the hills and valleys, glistening with butter and honey. I'm pretty sure you'll like it too.

German Pancake

5 eggs
3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
2/3 cup milk
3 T. butter

Butter a heavy 10" oven-proof skillet. Preheat oven to 450. Beat the eggs with a whisk to blend. Slowly add flour, beat well. Stir in salt and milk.

Pour batter into skillet and drop the butter by teaspoonfuls into the batter, spreading evenly. Bake at 450 for 15 minutes - reduce heat to 350 and bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Serve with butter, honey and a squeeze of lemon over the top.

**Note: Don't over beat the eggs - over beating them will result in a flat, non-puffy pancake, which is not nearly as fun.

Serves 2.

Sorry you got sick!

Thanks for picking me up from the airport and the place doesn't look bad.
