German Pancakes

From the LeMons

As with German Chocolate Cake, these have very little to do with Germany. I have never seen these in Europe, but somehow the name sticks. Anyway, this is a great breakfast if you want something hot and sweet and feeds a lot of people, but without having to stand in front of a griddle or waffle iron all morning. You literally just whip it all together, put it in the oven and by the time everyone gets to the table, it's ready to go.

Serves 6

6 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (about 200 C). Mix the eggs, milk, flour and salt in a bowl until smooth. Pour the melted butter into an ungreased 13x9 inch (about 23x33 cm) baking dish. Pour in the batter and bake, uncovered for 20 minutes.

The dish will puff up, like this:

But it deflates pretty quick, so serve immediately. Delicious with syrup or jam or whipped cream, or with some simple powdered sugar.

Yum!!! I've had these before, but I've never been brave enough to try to make one myself. Maybe I'll give it a whirl this weekend. Steve will be so excited. I rarely make breakfast.

German pancakes have always been one of my breakfast staples! I make them when I have too many eggs.
