German Pancakes

My mom used to make these often when I was growing up. I make them a few times a year and my boys love them. We have always called them "German Pancakes". I have also heard them called "Puffy Pancakes". They are very similar to "pop over bread" We eat them as a breakfast food. I know my brother-in-laws family eats it as a bread for dinner. Take your pick and enjoy.

6 eggs (9 eggs)
1 cup milk (1 1/2 cups)
5 Tablespoons butter or margarine (8 Tablespoons)
1 cup flour (1 1/2 cups)
1/2 teaspoon salt (same)

Preheat oven to 450 F degrees. Whip eggs until thick and lemon colored in a blender. Add milk, flour, and salt. Blend until smooth. Melt butter in a 9 x 13 pan (amounts in parenthesis are for a 9.5 x 13.5 Pyrex glass dish). Pour butter into pan 9 x 13 with melted butter. Bake 15 to 20 minutes. Be sure that center has the same firmness as the edges.

Serve with syrup of choice (we like maple) or powdered sugar.
