German Pancakes, AKA fluffy pancakes!
- 3 T melted butter
- 1/2 c. flour
- 1/8 t salt
- 1/2 t vanilla
- 1 T sugar
- 1/4 c milk
- 3 eggs
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Place melted butter in an 8×11 pan. You could also just place the butter in the pan and put it in the oven to melt while you mix up the other ingredients.
3. Mix flour, sugar, salt in medium sized bowl. Add milk, vanilla and beat in ONE egg at a time.
4. Pour mixture over melted butter and bake 15-20 min. The pancakes will rise up really high in the corners and then fall down after it has been taken out. It’s really fun for the kids to watch!
Enjoy with candy syrup, maple syrup, jam or cinnamon sugar.
