German Pancakes

Whether you call these Dutch Babies, Puff Pancakes, Statch or German Pancakes- the results are the same: pure deliciousness. Mom made these for us when we were growing up, so its a comfort food as well- not sure the origin of the recipe. This is my kids favorite breakfast and that is saying something given that I live in a household full of breakfast fanatics. I make these for dinner sometimes too...just because.

German Pancakes

1 cup milk
6 eggs
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp. salt
4-6 Tbs. butter (depending on preference)
1 tsp. vanilla
Sprinkle of cinnamon (depending on preference- I use @ 1 tsp.)

Preheat oven to 450 F. Combine all ingredients, except butter, in blender (or bowl with mixer). Melt butter in 9X13 pan in oven until hot and sizzling. Pour batter into pan and bake 15-20 minutes (watch for desired doneness). The size of the pan will greatly affect the thickness and cooking time so make sure you adjust accordingly. Brian likes to eat these with powdered sugar and applesauce, while us girls prefer maple syrup, but you can eat them however you like!
