German Pancake (gluten & dairy free)

Once I went with a friend on a trip to Dallas for her grandmother’s birthday. Just went along for the ride, and to help with her kiddos, and because we had a free place to stay (with her family).

Her relatives were so kind to make us feel very much at home. I went in the first morning, poured my coffee, and noticed a VERY strange thing on the stove, something we were eating for breakfast, something that looked like it came from the moon. Not knowing what it was, I took a slice and went to the table. Then I noticed everyone else had put syrup on theirs. So I went back and added syrup, good thing I did, or I might have made a funny face. Needless to say, it was delicious, it was a German Pancake, and it was delicious. Don’t be afraid, it’s very easy 🙂 and it’s fun for your kids to see right when it comes out of the oven, trust me!
Also, this recipe is gluten and dairy free because my little one has problems digesting both. You could use regular flour and milk if you choose to.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put 3 T butter in a 9″ x 13″ pan in the oven to melt, don’t let it brown!

Then, in a medium bowl, mix 1.5 C milk (I used coconut milk), 1.5 C flour (I used Gluten free), 1 tsp vanilla, .5 tsp salt.
THIS PART IS IMPORTANT:
You are going to add in 9 eggs. BUT… If you want a thicker pancake, you are going to beat the eggs quite a bit before adding them to the mixture. If you want a thinner pancake, you are just going to fold them in.
Ok, so add those eggs!

Now, pour the mixture right on top of that melty, buttery pan!

Now cook it on 350 degrees for 20 minutes. RIGHT before you take it out of the oven, go collect your kids! Have them take a look at how huge it is right out of the oven. Then it will slowly collapse, and you eat it!
You’ll want to put some yummy syrup, or powdered sugar!
