Want to attend an Oktoberfest? Join in the fun here is a link to one of the Oktoberfest going on in my neck to town. Taking place in Germantown Maryland on the 2nd of October. You can click on the icon to get more info.
For today's recipe I will be posting.Pfannkuchensuppe (Pancake soup). This is a really easy recipe, You can use any type of German broth, Vegetable, Chicken,Beef or pork.These can be purchased in the International isle of the supermarket. I like to use Maggi or Knorr. Bouillons can also be used.


The Pfannkuchen (pancakes)
1 1/2 level cups of organic all purpose flour
2 cups skim milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon salt

Mix above ingredients together , this will be a thin batter.
Using a griddle pan heat it to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
[ if pancake sticks you may rub a little bacon grease or oil on the griddle, however do wipe it off so only a very thin coat remains.]
Ladle about 3 Tablespoon onto hot griddle making a 8inch diameter pancake.
Cook to golden brown on one side and flip, continue cooking until golden brown on the other side. These cook fast, so do not walk away.
Continue cooking until all the batter is used. Now put these in the refrigerator while you make the broth below

The Broth.
( beef is tradtional however you can use any kind)
Add the next 4 ingredients and continue heating to a simmer.

3/4 teaspoon of freshly squeezed LemonJuice

Dash of freshly grated Black pepper. or to taste.

After simmering for about 30 minutes, you are ready to serve.

To Serve
Cut the pancakes into thin strips-a little less wider than a pencil
In each soup bowl add some strips of pancakes and pour broth over them.
