What's Up Wednesday--German pancakes/Mountains

When I was growing up my mom made this often.  We always called them Mountains because of how they puffed up while cooking.  I hadn't made these in a long, long time, and saw the recipe the other day and thought my kids needed to try them.  
Mr J was pretty impressed by how big they got while cooking.

It is basically like a baked egg pancake.  They are called lots of things-- German pancakes, or Mountains at our house.  You can put syrup on them just like a pancake.  I like honey butter on mine.  You can see that in the picture too.  This is super fast and easy to make.  I mixed the whole thing up in my blender.  We finished the whole pan so I am thinking next time we need to make 2 pans.  It is a breakfast food, but we had them for dinner.  Breakfast for dinner is a favorite around here.  Enjoy your mountains!

Mountains/German Pancakes
Turn oven on to 400 degrees.  Cut up a 1/2 cube (1/4 cup) of butter into pieces and put in a 9x13 pan.  
Put the pan with butter in it into the oven while it heats up and while you mix the other ingredients.  Keep in eye on it so it doesn't burn.

In a blender beat 6 eggs

Add 1 cup of flour and mix well,

Add I cup of milk and 1/2 tes salt and mix until smooth and kind of frothy.

Take out the melted butter pan and pour mixture into the butter.  Return to oven quickly and cook for 20 minutes.

Serve with anything you like on a pancake.

Honey Butter

1/4 cup butter, soft
1/4 cup honey
1/8 tes vanilla

Whip butter then add in honey and vanilla. Beat until smooth.

  1. We ate that growing up! I knew it Yorkshire Pudding- an English dish. To me, German pancakes are crepes. So funny how the recipes 'traveled'!
