For in the kitchen,
Someone lit a matchstick.

German Pancakes

This is one of the first recipes I ever learned. Also one of my favorite breakfast foods.  I love to watch it rise in the oven and see how tall it can be, then watch it fall as it cools off.  Some recipes call for less eggs, however less eggs equal less rise and less fluff. 
Like with all pancakes, syrup is great.  But I always preferred homemade jam on mine.  Either way, it is enjoyable.

German Pancakes

1 Cup of Flour
1 Cup of Milk
6 eggs
Dash of nutmeg and salt

Turn the oven to 400 degrees.  Place a half stick of margarine in 8X8 pan.  Butter can be used but be careful not to burn it.  Then put the pan in the oven and melt the margarine.  Place all ingredients in a blender and blend together.  Take the, now very hot pan out, and pour ingredients in.  Bake for 15-18 minutes or when all puffed up and golden brown on top.
