Puffy Pancakes

This is my go to Sunday morning breakfast. (and today is Sunday, so I thought I'd post it. and we don't have church until 1 pm and that means a long morning)

It's super easy, not a lot of cleanup, and we get a hot (nutritional?) breakfast before heading to church.

It's one of those fix it and forget it meals that you can quickly make when you wake up, and then jump in the shower while it cooks in the oven.

We always called them puffy pancakes growing up, but I'm pretty sure they are also known as German pancakes. Puffy pancakes are "funner" to say.

Puffy Pancakes
3 T butter

6 eggs
1 Cup milk
1 Cup Flour
1/2 tsp Salt

Pre-heat oven to 375*

Place 3 Tablespoons of butter in a baking dish (cake pan size) and place in oven to melt the butter while the oven is preheating.

Then get out your blender (or you can use a bowl and use beaters) and add eggs, milk, flour, and salt. And blend up.

Take the pan out of the oven, the butter should be mostly melted by now, pour in the batter and pop it back into the oven.

Bake at 375* for about 25 minutes.

Serve with maple syrup, sprinkled with powdered sugar. (and if you feel adventurous, add a small capful of lemon juice before you top it with maple syrup... I've always done that and I love it.)
