My Baby turns 9

It was my oldest "baby" boy's birthday this past week. We haven't had his birthday party yet (that will take place on Saturday) so no cake, but I let him pick what he wanted to eat for breakfast and lunch on his birthday. Dinner, we surprised him with Chuck E Cheese, so no choice there, he got pizza, but he said it was the best surprise ever. Afterward we took him out for ice cream at Baskin Robbins. The most difficult thing I made was breakfast, and it was super easy. I made what our family calls Hootenanny, also known as German Pancakes or Puff Pancakes. They are so simple and a great way to use up some extra eggs. You can go traditional and top them with syrup or just about anything else you can think of. I like mine with peanut butter and a little maple syrup. Yum!


1 cube butter
6 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. sugar

Heat oven to 425°F. Put a 9x13 pan in the oven with the cube of butter. Allow butter to melt, being careful not to burn. Put eggs in a blender; beat 3 minutes on high. Add milk, flour, salt, and sugar. Beat 3 more minutes. Pour egg mixture into melted butter in pan. Bake 20 minutes. Serve at once.
Optional- I find it easiest to cut with a pizza cutter.
