Strawberries Suzanne
1 pint fresh strawberries
and toss them in a non-reactive bowl with:
1/4 c sugar
2 - 4 T butter
in a 9" cast iron pan, over low heat.
Beat together just enough to mix everything:
3 eggs
6 T sugar
1/4 t salt
3/4 c flour
1 1/2 c milk
Pour the batter into the cast iron pan and bake at 425 for 20 - 30 minutes, until set and golden brown. The dough will rise a lot and look really impressive, but as soon as you remove it from the oven, it will fall. When it does, pour the strawberries on top and let them take up some of the heat before serving. Serve alone or with vanilla ice cream, fresh cream, or whipped cream.
Notes & Variations:
  1. This recipe came with the name "Barbara Bell's Strawberries Suzanne" though we don't know who Barbara Bell is. It takes a few minutes to whip together, and is a fabulous way to serve fresh berries. The dough is also called a Swedish Pancake.
  2. Use any kind of berries, or a mixture of berries on top. Stir a little Raspberry Cordial into the fruit with the sugar.
