Dutch Oven - German Pancakes


I woke up this morning and lit some coals for breakfast. These German Pancakes are really easy, tasty, and quick. There's only 15 minutes of baking time. This recipe was adapted from a recipe I got in 7th grade in my home economics class. It is originally for a 8" by 8" baking pan. I would either cook it in a 10" Dutch oven, or double the recipe for a 12" Dutch oven. I actually would double it anyway, it didn't yield much as shown above. It also usually rises and cooks to a crisp crust, but I think I opened the lid too soon, because it deflated when opened. Still tasted good, but next time I'm doubling it, and timing it better.

10"/12" Dutch oven

2 eggs
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
pinch sugar
2 tbs butter or margarine
maple syrup

Preheat Dutch oven and melt butter. Whip eggs with whisk in mixing bowl until lemon yellow in color. Add milk, flour, salt and sugar. Mix well with mixing spoon. Pour mixture in Dutch oven with the butter. The butter will float to the top; do not mix together. Bake for 15 minutes. Do not open Dutch oven until time is up.
