My 3 Monsters: German Pancakes

German Pancakes

One of our favorite breakfast treats is German Pancakes.  My kids would probably eat them every day if they could.  I'm not one of those awesome moms who cooks breakfast every day {like my sister}, but sometimes on the weekend we like to have something yummy.  For brunch. After we've all slept in a little bit.  German Pancakes are perfect for that.  They're my favorite low-effort, high-reward recipe.  Plus, we almost always have everything we need right in the pantry.

When I make this for the whole family I make two recipes -- two big 9x13 pans of goodness.  They're thin so you need to make more than you might think.  But sometimes, after my kids have gone to school and I'm all by myself in the house, I like to make just a half of a recipe and cook it up in my little Le Creuset skillet {that I found for $2 at the thrift store -- don't hate me for being in the right place at the right time, fellow thrifters}.  Squeeze some fresh lemon juice on top and sprinkle with powder sugar and it's the perfect little brunch for one.  OK, I'd have to be famished to eat the whole pan by myself -- it would be the perfect size to share with a friend.  Or to eat the other half for a quick snack before the kids get home from school. 

Because they CANNOT KNOW you made it without them or you'll be in BIG trouble, do you hear me?!

German Pancakes

1 C. flour
1 C. milk
6 eggs
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 C. butter, melted
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix the flour, milk, eggs and salt in a small mixing bowl with a whisk.  Pour into a greased 9x13 pan.  Drizzle melted butter over the top of batter in the pan.  DO NOT MIX!  Bake for 25 minutes, until edges have puffed up and it looks nice and golden brown.
Serve hot with maple syrup, fresh fruit, or {my favorite} fresh lemon and powdered sugar.

They turn out perfectly eggy, buttery, and yummy every time.  It's a most perfect breakfast treat for any time of year.  {Remember, to make it in a little cast iron skillet like this you'll need to cut the recipe in half.}  Enjoy!
