German Pancake

This is always my go-to recipe when I want to make a good breakfast but don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking. Most German Pancake recipes call for 6 eggs. My entire family loves this breakfast and always devours it, so I made this recipe thicker and more filling with 9 eggs. Serve this pancake with a sprinkle of powdered sugar or with my Homemade Berry Sauce recipe, my Homemade Buttermilk Syrup recipe, and some homemade whipped cream.
