German Pancakes (also known as dutch baby pancakes) are a pan pancake that gets puffy and golden in the oven. This is a breakfast staple at our house! Easy to make, even the older kids can make this on their own!
Preheat oven to 450ºF. In a 9X13 inch baking dish place the 4 tbsp of butter and put in the oven while it heats up. Remove the baking dish when the butter has melted.
In a blender combine the flour, milk, vanilla, salt, sugar and eggs. Blend until smooth, about 2 minutes. If you don't have a blender, this can be done in a mixing bowl with a stand mixer, hand mixer or whisked by hand.
Pour into the baking dish with the melted butter and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the pancake is puffy and golden.
