German Pancakes are a light and fluffy version of American pancakes. There are only 5 ingredients in this easy breakfast. Top with powdered sugar, fruit, or syrup for a delicious breakfast. Some people call these Hootenanny, Puff-puff, or Dutch Baby pancakes.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
While the oven is preheating, place the butter in a 9x13 baking dish and place in oven, just until the butter melts.
In a blender, add the eggs, milk, flour, vanilla, and salt (and cinnamon if desired). Blend until smooth. This can also be done by hand but is a lot easier in a blender.
Pour batter into the baking dish over the butter. Bake for 17-22 minutes or until the pancakes are puffy and golden brown.
To serve, sprinkle with powdered sugar and add fruit or syrup.
