German Recipe Dessert - Pfitzauf

This easy German recipe dessert for Pfitzauf are normally baked in ceramic Pfitzauf forms, but you can use coffee cups instead. They are especially tasty served with fruit compote e.g. apple compote, quince puree or with a fruit sauce. Or just enjoy them with your afternoon coffee.

They can also be served as a side dish with vegetables (rather like the British Yorkshire Puddings).

Pancake Puffs

5 eggs
250g wheat flour
a pinch of salt
1/2 litre milk
125g butter
powdered sugar for topping

Mix eggs with flour, salt and some milk and beat until smooth. Heat the remaining milk. Use part of the butter to grease Pfitzauf forms or coffee cups and then melt the rest in the milk. Stir boiling milk with melted butter into the batter mixture and beat lightly. Fill forms only half way with batter as they rise when baking!

Bake in a preheated oven at 180-200 degrees C for about 30-40 minutes. Remove from the forms while hot. If Pfitzauf are to be served sweet, sprinkle with powdered sugar.

If you want to achieve an especially light result, instead of using 250g flour, use 125g. This will be enough for 4 forms. This German recipe dessert for pancake puffs tastes delicious as a dessert or with coffee in the afternoon.
