This is a staple in my house. It is fast, easy and somewhat on the healthy side. This is my version of German Pancake.
Preheat Oven: 425
6 eggs (4 whole, 2 whites)
1 C. White or Whole Wheat Flour
1 C. Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
I use a rectangle baking dish but you can use two pie dishes or even 2 square dishes. I spray with Pam and set aside. You are welcome to use butter to grease the pan if you prefer.
Next in a bowl I add 4 eggs with 2 egg whites. Scramble, then add 1 cup flour. Mix together to get most of the lumps out and then add the 1 cup milk. After is it all mixed together I add the tsp of vanilla.
Pour into the baking dish and bake for 20- 25 mins. When it comes out it will look like the picture above.
To enjoy it, I like to spread it with almond butter and add a little syrup. My husband Scott likes to have only syrup on his but I like to add more protein. This recipe is great because it has more protein than a regular pancake.
Also, sometimes I will use half white flour and half whole wheat flour. Just remember that if you use all whole wheat flour or more egg whites that it will not fluff up as much but it still tastes great. I like the whole wheat because it adds more flavor and texture.
Try it out! You will love it!
