German Peach Pancake

I’ve totally taken over the kitchen now. My new roommates well and truly know that I cook alot. Lucky for them I also clean while I go so my kitchen is always squeaky clean. I don’t understand how people can cook and just chuck the dishes in the sink for later. It freaks me out.

My new place has a dishwasher too. This is a massive luxury after doing oh-so-many sinks of washing up over the past 6 years. Although they’re a bit weird about it. They only like particular things to go in there and still do a couple sink loads of dishes each day. I find it a little odd and I’m slowly working out what they like hand washed... Is this normal? Do some things need to be washed by hand – like Tupperware, glasses and saucepans? It may be normal and I’m just clueless...
Anywho, this pancake is amazing. I tried it a few days ago and it was too sweet, and too dense. Totally not what I expected so I modified the recipe. I reduced the sugar, has less butter and added another egg. The result was a deliciously puffed, peachy custard which topped with a sprinkling of icing sugar is totally amazing for breakfast. Those Germans know their stuff!

This is also supposed to be made in a pie dish – but for some reason I cannot find which cupboard I put it in when I moved casserole dish it is. Not very proper but I’m not a very proper person ;)

1 large or 2 small peaches, sliced
20g butter
1/2tsp cinnamon
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1/2 – 1tbspn sugar, depending on desired sweetness.
1/2tsp vanilla

Add the butter to a pie dish and chuck in the oven while it’s preheating to 180oC.

When the butter has melted, add the sliced peaches. Sprinkle over the cinnamon and toss to coat.

Put back into the oven and cook for 10mins.

While that is cooking, add the remaining ingredients to a blender and pulse a few times to combine. Make sure all the flour is mixed and doesn’t stick to the sides. Give it an extra pulse for luck.

After the peaches have softened and smell delicious, pour over the eggy mixture. I’d advise you do this in the oven to avoid spillage all over the floor.

Bake for 20-25mins. The pancake will rise and puff nice and big.

Dust with icing sugar and devour!
