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
Blend well.

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.

I wish we could have German pancakes. David can't have eggs. That menu item needs to go on a night that he is not home.

Zion And Missy said... these things. We call them puff pancakes.
I like to squeeze lemon juice on it then sprinkle it with powdered sugar. It makes kind of a sticky paste and it is divine!!
