German Pancake Recipe for Valentine's Day

Are you looking for an incredibly original way to surprise your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day?  Why not find your way into their heart through their stomach, or, in this case, put a heart in their stomach!  I used a simple german pancake recipe and two heart shaped cake tins to make this delicious Valentine for my husband and my daughter.  The recipe is very, very easy and it is actually a very healthy, protein heavy breakfast because each serving has 3 eggs, 1/2 cup milk and only 1/2 cup flour.  I have substituted with whole wheat flour before and it turned out scrumptious and healthy.  

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 lemon wedges
  • fresh berries
  • powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix the eggs, flour and milk together.  Don’t over mix, the batter will be lumpy.  Place the pans in the oven until they are hot (about 3-5 minutes).  Melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter in each pan, moving the pan around to coat the bottom and sides.  Divide the batter between each pan and place on the middle rack in the oven to bake for approximately 20 minutes.  When the pancake has risen and is browned remove from oven and plate.  Squeeze fresh lemon juice on the pancake and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Top with fresh berries.
