When Life Gives You Eggs

Now that the chickens are in full swing egg production mode, I've pulled out my Henry Thiele's German Pancake recipe to enjoy a tasty memory from my childhood.

Henry Thiele's was a restaurant in NW Portland many years ago.  My mother use to take us there to eat when we were kids. I was completely surprised when I found the recipe in the Seattle Times in 1992 and am glad to have it today. When eating these, I can remember the delicious smells of the restaurant, the color of the light coming through the windows, the table juke boxes and the warm company of my family.

The ingredients are basics that are easy to find; eggs, cream, flour, salt, butter, powdered sugar and a lemon.

Mix it all together and enjoy!

My pancakes don't turnout quite as fluffy as they should and next time I'll be playing with the amount of cream I add to see if a thinner batter will help the pancakes to rise more. They still taste as good as they did when I was a kid, nostalgia at it's best.
