One big 9x13 puffed pancake to feed a few. Whether you call them puffed pancakes, dutch babies, oven pancakes, "hootenannies" OR German pancakes, they really are so good!
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees...*WITH your 9x13 baking dish in the oven. This is THE key to big rising german pancakes.
In a large bowl of a stand mixer, or with a hand mixer... Or with a whisk: blend until smooth the eggs, milk, flour and salt.
Put the butter into the un-greased 9x13 baking dish, the butter will melt with the heat of the dish. As the butter melts move it all around the pan to help grease the pan.
Pour the blended pancake batter into the hot dish.
Bake uncovered for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
Remove from oven and poke holes into the edges to release the hot air. Serve warm with homemade buttermilk syrup, fresh berries and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
