Cowboy Pancakes

We call this a cowboy pancake because that's what Matt told us his mom called them. I have also heard them called Hootenanny pancakes, german pancakes, etc, etc, Call them what you like, they are fluffy, fun, and delicious. The kids love to watch the batter "grow" while its cooking in the oven. You can top them with whatever floats your boat at the time: The picture is giving the idea of a nice stawberry jam with powdered sugar sprinkled on top. (My personal fave). My kids like, maple syrup, berries and whipped cream, just to name a few.
Cowboy pancakes

6 eggs

1 c flour

1 c. milk

1/2 t salt

1/2 c. butter

powdered sugar

fresh berries sliced

Any other toppings you may find amusing.

Beat together eggs, flour, milk, and salt for 5 minutes. We do this in a blender and let it get nice and frothy.Meanwhile heat oven to 425 degrees. Place 1/2 c. of butter in a 9x13 baking dish. Put in hot oven just long enough to melt butter ( but not brown it). remove from oven and pour egg mixture in to hot butter. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. Pancake with "grow" up the sides of the pan. Cut into slices and cover with the toppings of your choice.
