You already know that we eat breakfasts for dinner. Do YOU? Let us know.
This is one of our fast and easy and FAVOURITE breakfasts/dinners. My husband loves this and requested it be on of our 30 Days/30 Meals.
GERMAN PANCAKE (aka Dutch Baby, Bismarck)
I adapted this from The Junior League of Salt Lake City's HERITAGE COOKBOOK
(I got this cookbook from my sister in law (Wendy) the first Christmas I was married (1979). Although I wore out the cookbook, and replaced it, I kept the the page with the note from her.
Makes a 9 x 13 pan
Put into a blender
3 cups of milk (I use 1%)
6 eggs (I use large)
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/3 cups sugar
1/2 teas. vanilla (or you can use vanilla sugar)
1/4 teas. salt
Set oven to 400* and melt in 9 x 13 pan
4 - 6 table. butter (be careful not to burn, but I like mine a tiny bit browned. ummmm, browned butter)
When butter is melted, immediately pour egg/milk batter into melted butter.
Adjust oven heat to 450* and bake for 20 mins.
Lower heat to 350* and bake 8 - 10 mins. (I always do 8)
This comes out full and puffed and above the pan sides. Within about 3 mins. it has fallen to about 1 " high.(I bake mine in a metal pan because it is a bit bigger than my glass ones.)
This can be served with powdered sugar and/or syrup, berries and whipped cream/sour cream, brown sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon apples/applesauce, pie filling... I serve usually serve with powdered sugar and syrup, juice and fruit salad.
This serves 4 - 8, BUT if there are leftovers, put in the fridge and reheat in the microwave. Works great.
