Do you like Pancakes?

German Pancakes??...

My husband's grandmother and great grandmother were of German decent.
 I never had a chance to meet them but whenever Jode and I first got together his mom would cook 
pancakes for us called German pancakes. I had never heard of them, let alone ever eaten them.
But as it turned out I liked them and now my kids really, really like them.
So whenever I go to make pancakes around our house it's usually these that make it to our table.
They are thin and kind of remind me more of a crepe-of-sorts. 
Hubs says you are supposed to lay the pancake out flat_ fill with syrup_ then roll it up_ and enjoy.

Thought it'd be fun to share the recipe with you this morning beings my kiddos are home from school today for MLK Day. This is probably what they'll ask me to cook them for breakfast.

Grandma Hubert's German Pancakes
Ingredients:               1/3C sugar
                                           1/4C cooking oil
                             2C milk
                                      1C plain flour

Blend real good with blender on high speed eggs, sugar, oil, and milk. Then add in flour and blend.
Mixture will be real thin. Pour enough batter into greased skillet to cover the bottom.
Flip when they start to brown around edges and cook other side.
Take out and enjoy with syrup or powdered sugar and fruit.
