German Pancakes

German Pancake

A couple weeks ago my family and I helped my brother and his family move. My parents came out to help as well, and it was a fun weekend. Because my house was sort of a half way point between where they were moving from, and moving to, everyone came to our house late that Sunday evening. This way they wouldn’t have as far to go the next day. In the morning I wanted to make them a nice breakfast since I new they would have a long day ahead of them. Unfortunately I had depleted most of my fresh fruits and veggies, on purpose, before we left for their house. Needless to say my fridge was looking a little sad as I stood staring into it, trying to come up with something “special.”

I had a bunch of eggs and a little bag of bacon bits, two green onions and some shredded cheddar cheese. So I decide to do an egg casserole. We just had regular pancakes the day before, so I didn’t really want to do that. Then I remembered how easy German Pancakes are and decided to go with them. I had some frozen fruit and a couple yogurts left in the fridge so my little boys helped me make some smoothies.

I usually do German Pancakes in a 9×13 pan but mine had the egg casserole in it. I decided to try out my new round cake pans. I just divided the batter equally and it worked great. I thought everyone in the world already knew about German Pancakes, but my sister-in-law insisted they didn’t and made me take a picture and told me to put it on here. So here it is. I have to say circle is the new rectangle as far as German Pancakes go. :)

German Pancakes

6 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup all purpose flour
pinch of salt
4 TBSP melted butter or margarine
Pour melted butter in bottom of 9×13 pan (or divide equally in two round pans.) Combine eggs, milk and four and salt. Whisk until smooth. Pour batter onto the butter covered bottom of the pan, (or evenly between the two round pans.) Bake at 425° for 18-20 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with syrup or fruit and whipping cream.
