There's a Fanpage in Facebook dedicated just to cast iron skillets and those of us who love them. And it was on that page that I saw someone post a picture of a lovely Dutch Baby aka German Pancake. When I saw the post, I didn't realize what I was looking at (my most favoritest ever pancake) but it did catch my curiosity with its plumpness and fluffy looking nature
