Hootenanny – German Pancakes

If awesomeness were measured by pages I think 540 PAGES in the Borg Family Cookbook is a close indication of how awesome my family is. What else is awesome? The Hootenanny German Pancake on page 70 and my cousin Kelli Rivera’s description of the breakfast delight.

“Once upon a time Mr. Pancake saw Mrs. French Toast, they fell in love and had a child. It was named Hootenanny – or was that how they made the child? Regardless, this is the beautiful combination of pancakes and French toast in one wonderfully simple and quick dish. My kids love to watch it bake because it bubbles up in crazy forms. I forgot to mention it is delicious!”

1/2 cup butter, melted (I use less)

My kids love how the Hootenanny German Pancake rises up all crazy.
