This light and airy German-style pancake is traditionally made with apples, but Bosc pears are a delicious variation. Puffy right out of the oven, the pancake will deflate a bit by the time you slice it.

Thick, heavy cast-iron skillets distribute heat evenly to produce a well-browned, nicely textured crust on baked goods. In a comparative tasting of this pancake recipe in the Fine Cooking test kitchen, the one baked in cast iron had a crust clearly superior to the one baked in stainless steel.
I used a blender to mix the batter. First the eggs, milk, zest, vanilla and sugar. Then I mixed in the flour. Blending gives the batter bubbles. Bubbles are air. Air creates rise and puffiness. The finished pancake was gorgeous and it was absolutely delicious. Always a favorite with good bacon on a Sunday night!
Such a great dish for breakfast!
