Whatever you want to call these, I’m pretty sure everyone and their dog just may have the recipe.  But I want to write it here cause it’s part of our family culture.

If they had a cooking contest, I’m pretty sure this one may win in the category for “breakfast foods that make kids’ eyes sparkle the very most.” It’s easy, but it takes 20 minutes to cook so you have to take that into consideration.  If you have a big eater like Max, you need to take into consideration that you need to double the recipe (make two pans), because that kid will eat one of them all by himself. Here you go:

Turn on oven to 400 degrees.

Cut up a 1/2 cube of butter into pieces and put it in a 9×13 casserole dish.  (The recipe I have calls for 3/4 cube but seriously, I want to slow down artery clogging as much as possible and it still tastes great).

Put butter in the oven to melt while the oven heats up and you mix the ingredients.  Be sure to check on it so it doesn’t burn.

In a bowl, beat six eggs.

Add 1 c. flour gradually and mix ‘til smooth.

Add 1 c. milk and beat together ‘til kind of frothy.

Add 1/2 tsp. salt.

Take out melted butter from oven and pour mixture into the butter. 

Return to oven quickly and set the timer for 20 minutes. It will puff up like nobody’s business.

After twenty minutes, take it out and serve with syrup, powdered sugar, strawberries, whatever.
