German Pancakes with Apple Cider Syrup

Submitted by Shauna Hinckley

Shauna's dad used to make breakfast for dinner occasionally and these German Pancakes were a favorite of hers growing up.

German Pancakes

4-6 T. butter

6 eggs

1 cup flour

1 cup milk

1 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Melt butter in a 13x9 inch glass pan in the preheating oven.

Blend eggs, flour, milk, and salt in a blender. When the butter is melted, pour in the egg mixture.

Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until puffy and golden brown.

Serve with syrup, jelly, applesauce, or powdered sugar.

In order to feed my family, I make a 1 ½ recipe (9 eggs, 1 ½ cups flour & milk…) and it still fits fine in a 13x9.

Apple Cider Syrup

1/2 cup white sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup apple cider

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons butter

Stir together the sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon in a saucepan. Stir in the apple cider and lemon juice.

Cook over medium heat until mixture begins to boil; boil until the syrup thickens.

Remove from heat and stir in the 2 tablespoons of butter until melted. Serve warm.
