German Pancakes

1/4 cup butter
1 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk
6 eggs, beaten
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Maple syrup or powdered sugar for topping

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a medium baking dish. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and pour the mixture into the baking dish with the butter.
2. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until the pancake is puffy and golden brown. Cut it into squares and serve with maple syrup or powdered sugar. These were amazingly simple and very good. I really enjoyed them. The boys each had 2 helpings. Oh, and whatever with the maple syrup OR powdered sugar - I say use them BOTH! They have an interesting texture - definitely not like the fluffy pancakes we are all used to. But it's a good different. Oh, and I used a small casserole dish. It's only about 8X5. I will probably double it next time and just use a full size casserole dish. Especially if you're feeding more than one adult and 2 1/2 kids. We cleaned it all up!
PS. I found this recipe in "The Friend" Kitchen Krafts for this month. Go here to find it.
