Huckleberry German Pancake

I love German Pancakes.
I love Huckleberries.
So what would be better than a German Pancake
with Huckleberries baked into the center!
Maybe dizzling Huckleberry Syrup over the top... that was better.
But even if you can't get your hands on Huckleberry Syrup,
or you don't want to spend the money on pricy Huckleberries,
you can substitute with Blueberries,
which would be equally amazing in this recipe.


Huckleberry German Pancake   

1/6 cup sugar
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
3 large eggs 
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup huckleberries
1/2 stick unsalted butter, cut into pieces

1. Put skillet on middle rack of oven and preheat oven to 450°F.

2. Beat eggs with an electric mixer at high speed until pale and frothy, then beat in milk, flour, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt and continue to beat until smooth, about 1 minute more (batter will be thin).

3. Add butter to hot skillet and melt in oven, swirling to coat. Add batter to the skillet, topping with the huckleberries and immediately return skillet to oven. Bake until puffed and golden-brown, 18 to 20 minutes.

4. Serve immediately and enjoy!
