Popeye Pancakes

I've been making this dish since I was a teenager. It tastes like a crepe, but denser and more filling. I serve it with powdered sugar, syrup, and whipped cream on top.



6 eggs
1 c. milk
1 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter

Blend eggs, milk, flour and salt in the blender for 2-3 minutes. Place a cube of butter in a 13 x 9 pan and stick it in the heated oven for a few minutes until the butter melts. Remove the pan and pour the egg mixture over the butter and return to oven. Bake at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes. It will rise in the oven and get really puffy, then settle down once you take it out of the oven. Top with powdered sugar. Serve with maple syrup and whipped cream.

I have made these before. So yummy. And I love how easy they are, great for Sunday mornings or any morning. I have heard them called German Pancakes or Hootenannies. I read one recipe where they sprinled the top with blueberries before cooking. I haven't tried that yet, but I'm sure it's good.
I also want to say thanks for your great blog. I love it! I visit often, looking for meal ideas. Thanks!

We call them German pancakes too, although the scouts call them popeyes. either way, they are SO good. Great w/a homemade buttermilk syrup.
