German Pancake

Laurel (Banner) Orr was my best friend in high school. I practically lived at her house on the weekends and in the summer. This recipe always reminds me of her mom's big country kitchen and the messes we would make. Oh my gosh, we were silly.

1/4 c. butter
9 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
1 1/2 c. flour
3 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 lemon, juiced
4 T. powdered sugar

In 9 x 13 baking dish, melt butter. Beat milk, eggs, flour, sugar, and salt together with whisk, mixer, or in blender. Pour batter into dish. Bake in 475° oven for 18 minutes, or until pancake is firm in center. Pancake will puff. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with juice of lemon. Tap powdered sugar through a sifter or sieve and sprinkle liberally over pancake. Serve with maple SYRUP. Serves 8. Cinnamon Sugar may be substituted for powdered sugar.
