German Pancakes Recipe

Yes, they are supposed to look large and puffy.  It's my kid's favorite part!  This is a fun and EASY recipe that I always have ingredients for.  We frequently have breakfast for dinner as well and this gets added to the list of options. (It would be perfect for a B is for Backwards day or a late night pajama party.)  What I love even more is that my kids can make it themselves.

6 eggs
1 c. milk
1 c. flour
1 tbsp. butter

Melt 1 tbsp butter in a 9x13 pan in a 400 degree oven until completely melted.  Watch closely so it doesn't burn.  In a bowl, mix eggs, milk and flour with a wire wisk.  Stir thoroughly.  When the butter is melted, take the pan out of the oven and pour mixture from the bowl into it.  Put the pan back in the oven and bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

These are best served warm and fresh from the oven. Serve with syrup, homemade jam, powdered sugar and lemon juice or however else you please.
