German Pancakes*



German Pancakes

4 eggs
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoon sugar (I like 2 tablespoons)
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a blender mix eggs, flour, salt and sugar.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees - put a 9x13 pan in the oven when preheating with the 2 tablespoons of butter so it can melt.  When preheated (and butter is melted) pour in the batter and bake for 20 minutes.  It will puff up while baking (if you don't over mix it).

Cut and top with fruit, jam, yogurt, syrup, whipped cream and powdered sugar.

*I did a little research online because there is always a debate over whether these are 'German' pancakes or 'Swedish' pancakes.  They are in fact German pancakes ... Swedish pancakes are more like a crepe.

Another fantastic recipe I made a couple of week ago:

Pumpkin Waffles

2 cups flour (can use whole wheat)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups eggnog (I like the pumpkin spice flavor)
4 tablespoons oil, melted butter
1/2 cup canned pumpkin

Combined dry ingredients in a bowl.  In separate bowl combine wet ingredients and then blend into dry ingredients.  For an extra treat throw in a handful of chocolate chips.
