With all the eggs we’ve been getting, I have been obsessed with finding new recipes to use them. I remembered my Oma making this giant pancake thing when I was little. It was called a German Pancake.
Turns out, it was the easiest pancake I’ve ever made. Just mix all the ingredients, add them to a baking dish and bake. It poofs up, which the kids (and me too) get a kick out of watching. When it’s finished, you can top it with confectioner’s sugar, your choice of preserves, honey, syrup, really the sky’s the limit. It’s so delicious!
- 6 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 5 Tbs. butter
- Preheat oven to 450°.
- In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, then add the milk, flour and salt.
- Once the oven is preheated, melt the butter in a 9×13 baking dish. When the butter is melted, take baking dish out and swirl butter around, making sure to cover the entire bottom of the dish.
- Pour batter into dish. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
The sides and corners will puff up and look like they will overflow, but it won’t. Once you take it out of the oven, it will calm down and deflate a little.
- Top with confectioner’s sugar, preserves, honey or syrup and serve immediately.
