Easy Thin Pancakes

This a very quick breakfast idea to get food on the table fast. My kids love these and ask for them every Saturday.



1/4 cup margarine (1/2 square) 1 cup flour 1 cup milk 3 Tablespoons sugar 3 eggs

Melt butter in your pan. While butter is belting mix all other ingredients.

When butter is melted pour it into batter.

Here is a trick, when the pancakes are ready to flip they will have little bubbles in the middle. (That little trick is not very helpful for a blind girl)

As you can see these pancakes are a lot like crapes. We use all kinds of toppings on them.

My kids love to have them with Cinnamon and Sugar. Peyton call them "Pixie Dust Pancakes".

When we top them with cinnamon and sugar the kids will roll them up and eat them.

You can also top them with fruit or jam and a little whip cream. I tried them with some Rasberries from out back yard. If you tries these let me know in the Comments below how your kids like them. Enjoy!

German Pancakes (Hootenanny Pancakes)


Made this for breakfast today and thought I would share it on the Blog. This is a family favorit for breakfast. This is a recipe Brandon's mom always made for him. They called them German Pancakes, but many people call them Hootenanny Pancakes. I dont care what you want to call them they are delicious. Brandon always asks me to make them. They are very easy, quick, and a great change for breakfast.


This is all you need to have to make this yummy breakfast:

6 Eggs

1 Cup Milk

1/2 tsp. Salt

1 Cup Flour

1 Cube Butter

Combine eggs, milk and salt and beat with a whisk until it is fluffy. Add flour a little at a time, and whisk until it is mixed well and there are no clumps.


Melt cube of margarin in a 9 x13 inch baking pan in the oven at 425 degrees. Then the margarin is melted and bubbly pour in the batter and immediately return to the oven.


Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. The pancakes will puff up and be crazy and uneven when they are done. Your kids will love to watch them raise as they cook. When you take them out they will fall. Server immediately with warm syrup. They are not as good warmed up so eat up and finish off the whole batch. That should not be a problem because they are so yummy.


I love to have this with sausage and bacon. My kids go crazy for them. They are really easy and taste great. Enjoy, and as always let me know in the comments how you like them.
