German Pancakes [Volcano Pancake Recipe]

German Pancake Recipe

We love pancakes, but when I make them for my family I am always flipping pancakes well after everyone is finished eating.  For Father's Day, Jon requested German Pancakes, which are 100 times easier to make than their buttermilk cousin.

I had never had German pancakes, or volcano pancakes as my kids like to call them, until after I was married.  The recipe I use is one that my mother in law gave me.

What you need:
6 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon of salt

What you do:

Heat the oven to 450 degrees
Once oven is heated, put the butter in a 9 x 13 Pyrex pan and place the pan in the oven.
Put the remaining ingredients (eggs, milk, flour, and salt) in the blender and blend until they are well combined.

When the butter in the oven has melted and begins to sizzle, pull out the oven rack and CAREFULLY pour the blended ingredients into the pan.

Close the oven and bake for 25 minutes or until the edges are brown and the center is firm.  (The edges will rise up the side of the Pyrex pan, which is what gives it the fun volcano nick name!)

For Father's Day we had a German Pancake bar of sorts.  Everyone got to pick their favorite toppings.  Some of our favorite options are fresh fruit, chocolate ganache, syrup, powdered sugar, and whipped cream.  I love to add toasted pecans as well!
