This Pennsylvania Dutch cross between custard, pancake and semi-sweet popover is puffy around the outside and flat in the center offering the perfect nest for sliced fresh fruit, jam, preserves, apple butter or a combination. This “baby” is airy, light and makes a beautiful presentation with a little added whipped cram. The batter can be made up to a day ahead and refrigerated. An Eggsellent Dutch Delight!

Directions:

Fifteen minutes before baking preheat the oven to 450°; have a pie plate or oven-proof skillet ready.

Whisk together the milk, flour, eggs, sugar, spices and citrus rind (if using) and vanilla; put the butter in the pie plate or skillet and place the pan in the oven just until the butter is melted; with a brush coat the rim and entire inside of the pan.

Slowly pour batter into hot pan; bake for 20 minutes; reduce heat to 350° and bake another 8-10 minutes, until pancake is well-browned; remove from oven and sieve confectioners’ sugar over the top; serve immediately with fruit spooned into the center of the pancake.
