If You Need Easy...

At this house we love least a certain type. I really like crepes and stuff but those things are so hard to get right. If you want a fail proof, pancake try this recipe. Mom made us these when it was our birthday or other special occasion. I am unsure where the recipe originally came from...but it is delicious. It does not require extra butter or syrup. It is awesome with lemon juice and powdered sugar sprinkled on top. mmm....I am going to have to make this recipe now. BAP and SSP love them too.

German Pancake

1/4 cup (1/2 o' stick) butter (you can use margarine too...however I don't like it that way since we switched to using exclusively butter...just does not taste as good)
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour

Preheat oven to 425. Melt butter in a large cast iron skillet (to save time I do this as the oven oven is kills a bird with 1 stone).

In a medium bowl mix together milk and eggs. Stir in flour. Make sure it is lump-free.

Once oven is preheated/butter melted completely, add all the pancake mixture to the pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Pancake will have grown tall and puffy, unless you open the oven too many times during the baking time; if you absolutely have to peek, use your oven light.

Serves 2-3 (or 1 LARGE appetite)

  1. This sounded like the perfect treat to try! I have it in the oven right now and it's looking amazing :)...through the oven light of course, not peaking through the doors :) Thanks for the idea! -Ang
