This is one of my boys favorite breakfasts. I love to make it for them because it is really easy for my to blend up and then pop into the oven. I have heard this recipe called German pancakes, Dutch pancakes, oven pancakes…but we call them Hootenanny pancakes. (Just because it is such a fun word to say!)

First turn on oven to 400. Put 4-8 Tablespoons (the original recipe called for the whole cube of butter–I prefer less) of butter in a 9×13 pan. Put the pan in the oven to heat up. It is important to heat up your pan before pouring the batter into it; this makes the the pancake get puffy and form peaks and valleys while it bakes. Usually by the time I have the batter whipped up the butter is melted. (Don’t let the butter burn, though.)
Mix in a blender:
½ tsp salt
1 c. milk
1 cup flour
Blend up above mixture and pour into the melted butter in the hot pan. Bake at 400 for 15-20minutes. The pancake will be all puffed up in crazy “hills” and golden. Serve hot with syrup–and my favorite, sprinkled with lots of berries! Yum!
