Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: German
Serves: 6
  • 4 tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 eggs
  • pinch of salt
  • powdered sugar for dusting
  1. Put the butter in a 9x13 pan and place the pan in the oven while it preheats to 400 degrees.
  2. Butter will melt while the oven is preheating. During this time, put the milk, flour, eggs, and pinch of salt in a medium-size mixing bowl and whisk until completely blended.
  3. Carefully remove the 9x13 pan from the oven. The butter should be melted. Pour the batter right into the pan. Don't worry about if the butter isn't coating the entire pan. It will be okay.
  4. Return to the 400-degree oven and bake for 18-20 minutes or until pancakes are lightly brown on the edges and the center is completely cooked.
  5. Remove from oven and sprinkle or sift powdered sugar over the finished pancakes.
  6. Serve warm with your favorite topping or syrups. We like Maple Syrup, Caramel Syrup or fresh lemon juice.
  7. Enjoy!
