German Pancakes

This is a recipe  from Great Home Cooking in America by the Food Editors of Farm Journal.  My own four children loved this recipe when they were growing up & often would request it for their birthday breakfast.  This recipe  is great to have a assistant.  I love to take turns with our grandchildren  in spending the night.  This time it was our seven-year-old grandson's turn & he is a great helper in the kitchen & also loves to try new foods!!  After playing Old Maids, Crazy Eights, Uno & Go Fish,  I told him about German Pancakes & he was my willing helper & taster.  Try this recipe out with your  helper.  I think they'll love it!!
                                                                                  
I have adapted the original recipe & do it all in a blender.  The old recipe used a rotary beater...remember those??!!  I don't even own one anymore!!!
Oops, we forgot to dust with confectioners sugar!!

                                                                        
4 eggs
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cup flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 t. salt

jelly
confectioners sugar
sugar & cinnamon

Combine the eggs & milk in a blender & blend.  Add the flour, sugar & salt & blend until smooth.

Lightly grease a 10" nonstick skillet with butter & heat for 1-2 minutes.  Pour 1/2 c. batter into skillet, tilting skillet back & forth until it coats the bottom evenly.  When lightly browned, loosen the edges with a spatula & turn over onto a platter.  You will need to butter the skillet each time.

Have your helper spread the pancake with butter & then sprinkle with sugar & cinnamon.  You also may,  instead,  spread the pancake with jelly.  Roll up the pancake.  Dust with confectioners sugar.  We also like sliced strawberries in the middle with whipped cream on top!

Makes about 8-10 pancakes
My helper & happy taster!!

  5. Your sweet assistant must have done a great job because the German pancakes look delicious! They do remind me of crepes as another comment mentioned.

    I have a rotary beater and use it occasionally. I had been wanting one and picked one up at a garage sale some time ago.

    Really fun stopping by to visit with you!

    Kindly, Lorraine

  9. Hi Kitty, I love German pancakes, but have not made them for years. I think I see them on the agenda. Raspberry jam is my favorite. Bottled a batch a few weeks ago. Thanks for sharing the recipe with SYC.
    hugs,
    Jann
