German Pancakes

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

I tweaked a recipe to try out this morning, and my boys are still raving about it. One son says that when he opens his own restaurant someday he will offer this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, because people will love it so much. :)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Melt half a stick of butter. Pour into the bottom of a 9x13 pan.

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup milk or milk alternative (rice milk, almond milk, etc.)
6 eggs
half teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla

Pour combined ingredients into the pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. Easy!

**You can add fruit to the batter to make this even yummier! I made it with pears this morning. (took about 10 extra minutes to bake) Certainly you could use apples, peaches, raisins, cranberries, etc.

I now make a simple fruit topping for many of our bready breakfast foods. Basically you just need 1-2 cups of fresh or frozen (but thawed) berries, plus a couple tablespoons of coconut sugar. Whiz it up in your food processor or blender. Voila! So easy, and so delicious!
