African Pancakes


Growing up we always called these African pancakes. 

But everyone else I've ever known calls them German pancakes, but they will always be African pancakes to me!  Although they are pretty much the same thing...they just taste better when you know they're African...try it, you'll see!:)

These are such a fun kid pleasing recipe!  If you haven't tried these yet, you should (adults like them too!)  They are best served with Buttermilk Syrup (recipe to come tomorrow!) and then sprinkled with powdered sugar. 
We do breakfast for dinner at my home once a week because they are easy and inexpensive meals.  So on that crazy night of the week (Wednesday for me!) we go the breakfast route...and these are perfect for one of those nights!
African Pancakes
(Budget Dinner Totals:  $1.75 for whole pan.  Cut into 6 servings = 28 cents)
1 cube butter
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
6 eggs
dash of salt
dash of sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix flour and milk together in a blender until smooth.  Add the eggs one at a time and then the salt and sugar.  Set aside.

Place butter in the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.  Put in the oven until butter is melted.  Pour the egg mixtures into the pan and return to the oven. 

Bake for 15-30 minutes or until it starts browning.  Mine took about 20 minutes, but it will just depend on your oven, so just start watching it around 15 minutes.

Stay tuned for the best Buttermilk Syrup recipe tomorrow!!
