Yummy Breakfast - German Pancakes

There's nothing better than a nice warm breakfast that really fills you up. The kids and I were able to have just this this morning and we are so grateful! This dish takes a little bit of prep, however it is pretty simple and even my 6 & 4 year olds can help me with it.

I made some yummy German Pancakes for breakfast today. The kids devoured them! This is what we do with our chicken eggs (from the backyard). I doubled the recipe and it ended up being perfect for us - it was thicker. It fed our family of 5 which was so nice.  I did need to use up the eggs from the fridge so that's why we made the recipe in the first place.

I think I am getting used to having chickens and I know I'm LOVING having fresh eggs. There really is a difference. They are not that much work, the kids like to see them and they give us eggs. I'm pretty much in love. I'm glad my husband grew up raising birds and knows all the ins & outs of what it entails. I'm also happy we live in a city that allows them. Our city allows all animals with enough land. Sometimes I wish we had more land so we could have llamas and then I remember how hot it gets and then how cold. Maybe I don't want to be out more than I need to.

Usually these are a lot thinner and can be super crispy and crunchy. When I make the normal (not doubled) recipe these only feed 3 of us and depending on how hungry the baby is she eats some, too. I actually preffered it this way where it was thicker and more filling. I also loved the texture of the eggs and how yummy they really are. 


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

Preheat oven to 400 F & melt butter in a 9x13 baking dish while preheating. Whisk eggs, milk, flour & salt in a bowl. When preheated pour mixture over melted butter. Bake 15-20 mins. Top with powdered sugar.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. And remember, don't be scared of the powdered sugar. You could even use your favorite syrup on them.
