RIP Elvis, our pet toad. He never finished his last meal (crickets).

Instead of crickets, try this recipe for German pancakes:

Place butter in a 10-inch pieplate; bake at 425 degrees until butter melts. Remove from oven and set aside.

Combine flour, milk, eggs and nutmeg in a medium mixing bowl; stir until well blended. Pour flour mixture into butter (do not stir). Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes; remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Bake an additional 5 minutes. Cool slightly; cut into wedges. Serve with lemon juice, jam or jelly (in particular, red plum jelly).

Yield: 4 to 6 servings.
