German Pancakes

I've been making these since I was a kid. My own children now love them. They are super easy - just mix ingredients and dump in the pan. They are also sometimes called Dutch Babies or Popeye Pancakes.

1/3 c. butter
6 eggs
1 c. butter
1 c. milk
dash of salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place butter in a 13 x 9 glass pan and place in oven for 2-3 minutes until butter melts. Mix the rest of the ingredients. Remove hot pan from oven and pour egg mixture on top of the hot butter and immediately return to the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup. It is also good with a dollop of whipped cream.

I have never tried maple syrup on these - our favorite is squeezing some fresh lemon juice on top of the powdered sugar.
