I was looking for an easy recipe for brunch Grandson could help with and remembered the German Pancake on Enola's blog. I helped Grandson with the instructions and he did most of the work. Only took a few minutes to put together and 20 minutes to bake. After it finished baking we sprinkled powdered sugar and cinnamon over it and served with maple syrup. It tasted like french toast!
My cast iron skillet was about 10 inches so I added 6 eggs instead of 4. That was the only change I made. Grandson wants to do another with pictures so you may get step by step instructions from the six year old grandson at a later date. Thanks to Enola for a quick and easy recipe that tastes like you spent hours on!

Combine milk, eggs and vanilla in bowl. Beat until combines. Stir in flour and sugar. Beat with egg beater (or mixer) until smooth. Pour the batter into your hot pan.
