Looks like something for cooking eggs, perhaps?

thought it might be a plett pan: http://www.amazon.com/s... but all of those pans have at least 6 indents. I'm going w/lastnightsdinner and shooting for eggs. any mark on the back?

I think it looks like a pancake pan. I've seen them before in Scandinavian cookbooks if I remember correctly.

How about a crumpet or English Muffin baking pan?

I think it's a plett pan. The indentations look too shallow for eggs, at least from what I can see in the photo. But there's no reason you couldn't try it with eggs and see what happens.

Thanks everyone! I didn't see any markings at all. My first thought was eggs, too. But the plett pan seems more logical. This reminds me I have a Swedish Food cookbook. In it, there is a recipe for Swedish Pancakes that says "Heat Swedish pancake pan and butter well....pour by tablespoon fuls into sections of pan and fry on both sides until nicely brown." I wonder why this one only has 4 sections?

I guess a plett pan is pancake then? I think I was thinking of Swiss rather than Scandinavian maybe, because when I just googled '4 compartment pancake pan' this blog came up:
http://tofufortwo.net/2008... Not sure if it's the same pan, but looks similar.
It's a neat looking pan, is it antique?

Interesting, your Plett pan theory seems plausible, but TiggyBee's suggestion of a Rosti pan also looks like it could be correct. My two cents, maybe its for making Whoopie Pie cakes.

Vote for pancakes. Whoopie Pie cakes are baked in the oven on a cookie sheet. I recently acquired 2 cookbooks devoted exclusively to whoopie pies and looked through them with my 16 y/o daughter, a whoopie pie fiend.

I'm sticking with the Swedish pancake theory, although I'm sure there are lots of different applications this pan could be used for. I like the rosti idea! But it only makes 4 whatever's at a time - not too practical unless you are cooking for 1 or 2.

Thanks, betteirene, I've sent my question off to Mr. Kimball!

THe Dutch make small pancakes called poffertjes. I think the pans are usuallylarger, but perhapsyou coulduse this pan for a single serving.
