Before I was married, I had never eaten a German pancake. After getting married, my husband told me how he loves a recipe for Hootenannies that his mom makes. I had never heard of Hootenannies (otherwise known as German pancakes). Come to find out that is what his family called German Pancakes.
After making them, it has become a staple in our house. It’s quick, easy and the whole family loves them. So if you haven’t given Hootenannies a try before, here’s your chance.
- 1/2 cup butter (I only use 1/4 cup)
- 1 cup milk
- 6 eggs
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Melt butter in a 9×13 pan while oven preheats. Heat oven to 425 degrees.
- In a blender, mix eggs and milk; add flour and salt and blend again.
- Pour mixture into pan with melted butter. Bake 15 to 20 minutes at 425 degrees. (This will rise, but will not run over pan.)
- Cut in squares and serve as French toast with syrup, jelly, fruit, powdered sugar. Be creative! Serves 8.
