Super-Duper Puffy Pancakes

... also known as ... German Pancakes!

These are super easy for kids to help mix the batter before mom puts them in the hot pan in the oven. And then to see the eyes light up of the kids when this HUGE, PUFFY pancake comes out! It's magic, I say, magic!!!!Here's what you need (I make 1/2 serving - double it for a 9X13 pan):
4 Tbsp butter
3 eggs
1/2 coup flour
1/2 cup milk
dash of salt

Here's what you do:
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place casserole dish in the oven with butter. Mix eggs, flour, milk and salt together in separate bowl. When butter is bubbling, pour the batter into the hot dish and bake for 20 minutes (or until golden brown and fluffy).

I like to serve mine with syrup and powdered sugar. Or if I have some in the fridge, I like it with home-made buttermilk syrup. YUM!

At my house they're called 'Crazy Hot Cakes'. And if you're really cool you emphasize the 'craaaaAAAaaaazy' part. :D

Hi there! I saw your site on "Room Mom 101" and had to check it out. I LOVE this recipe! We had these at a bed & breakfast on our honeymoon (although they called them Dutch - not Deutsch - pancakes), and every recipe I've seen since then involves a cast-iron pan, which I don't have. Can't wait to try this! =)
