Egg Cake - Eierkuchen

Eierkuchen
These are approximate measurement. Sis was trying to build the recipe while Mom was cooking..

Fried bacon pieces
12 eggs
1.5 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup milk
3 cups flour
1 can peaches

Crack the eggs into a bowl, add milk and baking powder and flour
Mix well. Mom uses a whisk, Sis's boyfriend says he would use a mixer.
The batter should be the consistency of pancake batter if not add a bit more milk or flour.
Put fried bacon into cast iron skillet.
Pour in batter..
Mix batter until is looks like scrambled eggs still a bit wet..
Smooth it down and let it cook with a lid on for a bit. Shake it to keep it from sticking or use the pancake flipper to lossen it.
Shake the cake out onto a plate.. This is the hard part sometime is falls apart but it still tastes great..
Pour a little more bacon grease into the skillet and flip the cake back in to the pan fried side up.. Let it cook till the bottom is nice and brown.
Ya the finished cake.. Serve with peaches
Grandma always fried it in a pan but one of Mom's older neighbor ladies would just bake it in the cast iron skillet in the oven. 350 until done..

BOL this post got my M drooling and that's not an easy thing. She's not big on edibles, unlike the rest of our family. Let's hope she follows your great directions and measurements. So, you said five cube steaks, huh? We'll start with that, Thank you
