German Pancakes (or pannekoeken if you're Lisa)
6 eggs (Egg Beaters puff even better)
1 Cup White Flour
1 Cup Milk
1 tsp salt
1/4 Cup Butter
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut the butter into pieces and place in a 9 X13 pan and put in the oven while it preheats. Put the eggs, flour, milk, and salt in the blender and let your three-year-old turn it on. (Try and get the lid on before she pushes the button if possible). When the oven has preheated, the butter should be melted. Give the egg mixture one more whir for good measure and pour it into the hot pan. Close the over door and turn on the oven light. No need to set the timer. Just park one of your kids in front of the oven and have them give you updates. They'll say something like. "Hey Dad, it's starting to puff." Then, "Wow, Dad, its getting puffier." and finally "WOOOOOW, it's climbing out of the pan!" Then it's ready (about twenty minutes if you lack a kiddie timer). Get it out quick and admire it in all its puffy German glory because it doesn't last long. Robert Frost and Pony Boy both said it. "Nothing gold can stay."
Our family and members of the Greasers I'm told both prefer German Pancakes topped with strawberries. Slice them up, add some sugar and a little lemon juice and let them sit for a few minutes. Powdered sugar is good too. Just don't inhale when taking a bite or you'll likely start coughing and shoot a partially chewed pancake fragment across the table onto the plate of your fellow diner. If it is a family member, you'd likely be O.K. If it's a Greaser you're in for some fist-a-cuffs.
