Not that there's anything complicated or really unusual about German pancakes. I think my surprise might stem from the fact that I never ate them myself until I was an adult, and I never made them for my son until a little over a year ago. But apparently it was love at first bite for him, which I will not complain about. The more foods my kids are willing to try and then (hopefully) learn to love, the better. In general, I feel like my kids are good and varied eaters, but if German pancakes become my son's gateway food to, say, an omelet... well, that would make me one happy mom.

Makes 2 9-inch pancakes
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup flour
2/3 cup milk
1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease two 9-inch cake pans well. Put eggs in a blender, cover, and press the "stir" button until light yellow in color. Push "mix" button, remove cover, and add remaining ingredients; process until smooth.
2) Pour batter equally into pans and bake for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and then bake 10 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and pancake is fluffy. Serve with maple syrup or powdered sugar and lemon juice. Enjoy!
