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)
