Johnny's German Pancakes

Heh, heh ... I'm more German than Johnny is,
but this is his specialty:
German Pancakes!

This recipe feeds 4 - 6 people.
(Adjusted recipe suggestions included).
Preheat oven to 430°. 

Spray a 9"x13" glass dish with cooking spray.

Melt one stick of butter in the dish.

Six eggs, 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour.

Add 1 Tablespoon canola oil to the eggs.

 Beat eggs with an electric mixer.

 Add milk to eggs ...

... add flour to milk and eggs ... 

Mix until thoroughly blended.

 Pour ...

 ... pour ...

... pour ...

 ... pour into the glass dish.

Place into the preheated oven.
Now comes the fun part!!  Bake for about 25 minutes:
I took pics every 5 minutes to show you
the magic!

At five minutes, it has begun to set up.

At 10 minutes, it's beginning to rise.

And rise ...
... and rise ...

... and RISE!!!

Remove from oven ... it will deflate a bit.

This feeds one adult and four hungry children.
We have never ... ever ... had leftover German Pancakes.

Cut into bite-sized squares and dust with
powdered sugar.  Mmm!!!
Johnny and the kids like real maple syrup, as well.
NOTE: This recipe is easily adjusted ...
half a recipe would be 3 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup flour.
(and a 8" square baking dish)
Or 1.5 times the recipe:
9 eggs, 1 1/2 cups milk, 1 1/2 cups flour.
Johnny adjusts this all the time -
today, he used seven eggs.
The oil is always a "dash" which is about 1T.
It still works out yummy every time!

Most popular weekend breakfast request.
