Fruit Stuffed German Pancake

This is a fun recipe that you can modify every time you make it!  Stuff it with fresh fruit as I did above, or cheese and meat... the possibilities are endless!

1/4 cup butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
4 eggs, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup powdered sugar (for dusting)
2 cups mixed berries
1 cup freshly whipped cream
Maple syrup

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Melt butter in a medium oven safe dish.

Beat the eggs in a medium bowl, then add the remaining ingredients.  Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish, over the melted butter.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown.  The pancake will rise up around the edges, creating a cavity in the middle.  Remove the pancake from the oven, let cool slightly and then stuff with desired toppings.

Tips: This pancake comes out different every time!  Sometimes it rises quite well, other times it comes out a little flatter and thicker, but either way it is always delicious.  I have also filled this with mixed cheeses and vegetables and it was equally delightful....  Enjoy!
