Original Pancake House German Pancake (Copycat)
June 06, 2016
"These pancakes are widely reviewed as being some of the best pancakes around. According to The Original Pancake House’s website they have been around in Portland OR since 1953 & there are now over 100 restaurants in 25 states. An authentic ethnic recipe that cannot be found elsewhere, even @ IHOP. Although a cast-iron skillet works best for this recipe, but you can use a non-stick skillet if it's deep enough to allow the pancake to "fluff" w/o causing overflow. While the recipe says it makes "1 large pancake", IMO this large pancake will be 2 servings, esp if served w/other breakfast items. (Time does not include the batter resting time) Enjoy!""

Preheat oven to 475°F.
Crack eggs into a bowl and scramble with a whisk or beater.
Pour the sugar, vanilla extract, milk, cream and salt into the bowl and mix together really well.
When mixed, add the flour and stir. When the mixture is blended well let sit for approximately 5-10 minutes.
With a cooking brush spread the melted butter onto the pan and get hot, but do not let the butter burn, then add the batter into the pan.
Put into oven for about 15 minutes. This is why an iron skillet works best!
Put on a plate, serve, and top with your favorite pancake toppings. Like syrup, butter, powedered sugar, strawberries, whatever!
