German Pancakes

I learned this recipe in 6th grade Home Economics. This was one of my favorites growing up. We have breakfast for dinner once a week and this is the breakfast dish most requested.

German Pancakes

1/2 C. flour
1/2 C. milk
1/4 tsp. salt
4 T. margarine
5 large eggs
Combine flour, salt and milk. Mix well.
Add eggs, one at a time whipping after each.
Melt margarine in pie pan. I do this by placing the pan with the butter in it in the oven while it is preheating.

Add batter to melted margarine. Do not stir.
Bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Serve with powdered sugar, syrup, or jam.
The edges will rise up and the middle will stay down. This isn't the best picture but don't be alarmed if your edges get over 4" tall. I took the picture in the oven because it will go flat once you pull it out.

The next time you have extra eggs, give German Pancakes a try.
