German Pancakes Recipe
If you can't get out today for the IHOP Free Pancake Deal, why not make some German Pancakes? This recipe came handed down from Oma, also known as my MIL, or John's mother. We loved it when she got out the skillets and made her famous German Pancakes. The kids could eat a huge stack of them. Heck, I could eat a stack of them! They were nice and thin, almost like crepes. They're easy to make, and use just a few simple ingredients you probably already have on hand. If you have flour, eggs, milk, salt and oil, you have everything you need to make this German Pancake recipe. I still make them today on the boat for John and I. All my kids know how to make them too, so they can't get away with the old line, "I don't know how. Can you make them for me?" You know what? We're having German Pancakes for supper tonight. There, dinner plans have been made!
