  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, salt and sugar. Pour in milk, eggs and cream, and stir into a smooth batter. Meanwhile, melt margarine in a cast iron skillet. Pour the batter over the melted margarine.
  3. Place the skillet in the oven, and bake for 35 minutes. The pancake will rise to form a bubble in the middle. Remove from the oven, and let cool until the pancake sets, or goes down. Cut into pieces, serve with maple syrup and enjoy!

I liked this but my family did not. Sprinkled with pwrd sugar instead of serving with syrup (post pic). Also, baked on a pizza stone instead of a cast iron skillet.

This was a very good and easy recipie....the only reason I'm giving it three stars is because what made it a five star recipie in my home was the buttermilk sauce I made to go with it that's listed in the German Pancake and Buttermilk Sauce recipie a few recipies up......they're AMAZING togehter!!!!!! My two year old and his 5 year old cousin had seconds and even thirds a hour or so later! YUM!!!!!

It is a very tasteful recipe - I really enjoyed it! What I liked most, though, was that it doesn't need pancake mix, which is something I can't easily find in my country.. You should try it!

This is a delicious recipe, though we use milk instead of cream. Try topping with powdered sugar and lemon instead of maple syrup. YUM!

I tested this recipe 4 months ago and now I am forced to fix this pancake for my family weekly! It is so easy, much easier than conventional pancakes since it's all done in the cast iron skillet. And it's even BETTER the next day. I always serve it with frozen blueberries warmed in syrup. It is the BEST!

My whole family really liked this. I made the buttermilk syrup that I saw someone else post about in another review. It is more of a custard than a pancake though. The pan size might have alot to do with that. If it were thinner it would be more pancake like. Mine ended up about 1.5 inches thick. I used a 3 quart frying pan.

AWESOME. Bf said it was the best meal I've ever made him. I'm with the other reviewers - the bechamel sauce mentioned in other reviews is a must! It completely makes the dish.
