Da German Pancakes

I love getting up in the morning and having a good breakfast. And I don't mean no stickin' cereal or bagel and smear, but a really yummy serious breakfast. Waffles, crepes, pig in a blanket, or a really good omelet. Ohhh the possibilities. But sometimes... as good as those all are... some of those yummy breakfastes weight me down in the morning and are too heavy for me. Which is why we have breakfast for dinner a lot.... Brinner as we so fondly call it.
.
But even with all those good breakfast meals out there... there is one delicious, tasty, light breakfast I can always turn too.... German Pancakes or as some of you call them Dutch Babies. They are such an easy fix in the morning, so delicious, and filling yet light. So if your mouths are starting to water right about now then here is what you need to know...
.
6 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 TBS butter or margarine, melted

1. Place the eggs, milk, flour and salt in a bowl and mix very well until smooth. Take melted butter and pour into a 13x9 pan ungreased pan. Add the batter.
2. Put the pan in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 mins.
3. Dust pancake with confectioners sugar and serve immediately. Best served with either syrup, lemon juice, or pie filling.

These are really easy, tasty, and not bad for you. Even if you ate a half a pan by you self you would only be about 3 egss, 1/2 cup milk, and some butter. Not too shabby... and that is for half a pan :)
p.s. Last time I made these I thought they could have use a little bit more salt.

  1. Yummy! We're big breakfast fans too! My son requested bread pudding and homemade buttermilk syrup for his birthday dinner tonight!

    Thanks for stopping by my recipe blog and commenting! I have a public blog and a private one too. My public blog is hotmamashouse dot blogspot dot com (it's been a little neglected this week, because we've been way busy with end of school events), but stop by :) I love making new blog friends!

  26. I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
    The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

    The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

    For the first 10 clients the price 15$

    To all clients free updating and support.

    Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
