Mmmm. We used to make German Oven Pancakes all
the time when we were kids. Probably because they are fast, easy and don't require many ingredients. And we were in and out of the kitchen before my dad could get mad. (He's a little OCD!)
I make these for dinner every so often, usually when the hubby is gone and I don't have to cook any meat! Obviously the kids LOVE them! Who wouldn't!
German Oven Pancakes
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
3 large eggs
1/8 cup sugar
dash of salt
2 tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 400. Put butter in 9x13 and melt in oven.
Mix the rest of the ingredients. (I just whip it up with a fork. It's ok if it has little lumps)
Swish butter around dish to grease the bottom. Don't worry about the sides. Increase the temperature to 425. Pour batter into pan and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until edges start turning golden brown.
*For me and the 3 kids, I have had to make a 9x13 and an 8x8 to "fill" everyone up. I just 1 1/2 the recipe, because the measurements really don't have to be exact! If you have kids older than 10, especially boys, I would plan on at least doubling the recipe. :)
Our favorite toppings:
-Fresh fruit, & whipped cream. (pictured above)
-Powdered sugar & laughing cow cheese. (just try it!)
-Homemade strawberry jam.
I haven't tried it yet, but I think it would be delicious to cut this up and make a monte-cristo sandwich out of! Next time for sure!
