If you live in the Chicago area you can go to Walker Bros. and see these gorgeous pancakes coming out from the kitchen. My mom, Gwen, was an original “foodie” long before the term was coined. She had a collection of probably 6 or 7 well seasoned cast iron pans and the size of the crowd for breakfast determined which pan she’d use for making this pancake. The recipe she left was probably clipped from Sunset Magazine sometime in the 1960′s. Also known as a German pancake, it is very similar to Yorkshire pudding and is made using the same ingredients.
