So, to start this 12 Days of Christmas series, I thought I would give you a recipe for German pancakes. They would be the prefect breakfast for Christmas morning.
- 6 eggs
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 tbsp. butter, melted
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Blend the eggs, flour, milk and salt in a blender until smooth (remember to put the lid on it - she said from experience)
- Pour the melted butter into a baking dish, and add the batter.
- Cook, uncovered for 20-25 minutes.
On a side note, these are also often called Dutch Babies. Once, we decided to make them and my boyfriend's parents' oven wasn't working for some reason, so we went to my parents house. We got the batter into the oven and then kind of forgot about it. All of a sudden, he jumped up and ran to the kitchen. My step-sister and her friend/boyfriend (don't remember which) looked at me confused and I said, "Oh, we have something in the oven..." (slight confusion and shock) "I mean, we have a Dutch baby in the oven" (obviously not any better) "Ugh, nevermind...we're making breakfast."
Funny, I haven't thought about that in years...
Happy First Day of Christmas! Did anyone get a partridge in a pear tree?
