German Pancakes

My German mother-in-law made these crepe-style pancakes that were served with applesauce and a variety of fresh berries. After spreading the pancake with applesauce and cut-up berries/fruit, roll up the pancake and sprinkle with granulated sugar or cinnamon-sugar.The recipe yields approximately 10 pancakes using a 9 inch skillet.
