Childhood favorite. The German Pancake or Dutch Baby.
Loaded with eggs, I thought to myself, how the heck do I make this vegan? Here is the original egg and dairy filled recipe by Food Wishes: Dutch Baby.
I searched for someone who had made this childhood favorite vegan: many look quite tasty though they are not quite it, I included the links because I appreciate their efforts. The Vegan Hausfrau for German Apple Pancakes. The Vegan Fling has a recipe for Pancake Puffs that sounded close, but not quite. The Veggie Nook has a German Chocolate Pancake that is more like vegan German Chocolate Cake. Also, not it. Go Dairy Free has a recipe that is gluten-free for Dutch Baby Love.
I am still looking and experimenting, to recreate this childhood favorite:
The 425 degree F oven, the black cast iron pan, the batter sizzling in oil, my little brother and I with our faces pressed to the oven window watching it bubble and lurch like something out of Yellowstone National Park. Then the crisp golden bubbles, pulled from the oven for a squeeze and sizzle of lemon juice and then dusted with powdered sugar before we devoured the love my mother made for us.
