German Pancakes

German Pancakes are a favorite breakfast in my house.  My two boys, who share the same birthday, always choose them for their birthday breakfast.  Lucky for me, they have the same favorite!  For me, German pancakes with powdered sugar and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice remind of breakfast on Christmas morning.  Growing up, German pancakes were a Christmas breakfast tradition.

German Pancakes

1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups milk
6 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  Place 1/2 cup butter in a 9x13 pan and place in oven until butter is melted and bubbly.  In a blender combine eggs, milk, and flour.  Pour the batter into the hot pan over the melted butter.  Place pan in preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.  Serve with powdered sugar and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
