[German Pancakes]

When I was a little girl, the Jacksons came up to our home from Seattle one weekend.  Michelle made these for breakfast.  They have been a tradition in our home ever since.

German Pancakes

1/4-1/2 cup of margarine (recipe calls for 1/2, I use 1/4)
4 eggs
1 cup 2% milk (for best results)
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla


- Preheat oven to 400F
- place margarine in 9x13 glass pan, melt in oven.
- mean while, add all remaining ingredients to a bowl, mix.  This should be lumpy ... if you mix to long, when it bakes it becomes eggy and thick instead of thin and puffy.
- pour mixture into melted butter pan
- bake for approx 18-22minutes ... it should rise on the outsides of the pan and in the middle as well.  It looks crazy  ...

Serve immediately, or it'll sink.

Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve with syrup.


  1. Yummy - I want to make this! I suppose 10 to 10 at night isn't the best time right?? But it looks so good! :-)
