German Oven Pancakes

German Oven Pancakes


1/2  cup all-purpose flour, sifted 
3     eggs 
1/2  cup milk 
2     tablespoons melted butter 
1     tablespoon sugar 
1/4  teaspoon of salt 
       fresh fruit of your choice, cut into bite-sized pieces 
       whipped cream


1.Preheat oven to 450°F. If you have a convection oven, set it at 425°F (the pancakes rise even higher on the convection setting).

2.In a large bowl, lightly beat the eggs with a whisk or fork. Stir in the milk, melted butter, salt and sugar. Add the flour to the egg mixture, a big spoonful at a time as you continue to whisk. Be careful not to over-mix, to keep the pancake light and fluffy.

3.Lightly spray a 9"-11" oven-safe skillet with cooking spray.

4.Pour the batter into a heated skillet (this will yield a more golden brown, puffier pancake). Bake 12-18 minutes, just until the edges are golden. Check your pancake at the 12 minute mark. Top with the fresh fruit and whipped cream just before serving
