German pancakes

German pancakes were my favorite childhood breakfast, and I've been on a kick with them as of late. They're easy, healthy, and very cool-looking to kids because they come out of the oven all puffy and then start settling down in an unpredictable manner.


Wanna try? Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Put 2 Tablespoons of butter in a cast iron skillet, and put it in the oven to melt the butter. Meanwhile, mix together in a bowl 1/3 cup flour (I use whole wheat) and 1/3 cup milk. Add three eggs and 1/4 teaspoon of salt and mix. Take the skillet from the oven and swirl the butter around so that it coats up the sides a bit. Pour the pancake mixture into the hot skillet and bake for 20 minutes. Super simple!

Top with syrup, jam, or fruit. A sprinkling of powdered sugar makes it unreal! I'd say it serves two adults or four kids. Better make two pans!

Great with strawberries and powdered sugar, or maple syrup. This is one of the ONLY ways that eggs actually taste good! :)

Oh yeah. Gracias, Mama. I will edit it to say how you're supposed to eat it.
