German Pancakes in the Slow Cooker

Makes 6 servings

1 cup flour
1 cup milk
6 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
4 Tbsp melted butter

1.  Combine flour, milk, eggs and salt in a bowl.  Mix well.
2.  Spray 6 quart slow cooker with nonstick spray.  Melt butter and pour into bottom of slow cooker.  
3.  Pour batter into slow cooker.  Cover and cook on HIGH for about 1 hour.  Pancake will puff up.  Serve with powdered sugar or syrup on top.

When I was on Channel 2 a few weeks ago a cameraman asked me if I had ever made pancakes in the slow cooker before.  I kind of laughed a bit and purposely didn't tell him about this recipe.  Then he went on to say, "I bet you could make German pancakes in the slow cooker."  Of course after he said that I decided that I had to try it and see.  I ended up using whole wheat flour for this recipe and I think that it kind of weighed it down a bit.  If I was to make this again I would use regular all-purpose flour instead.  This tasted good to me straight out of the crock hot.  But there were leftovers and they just weren't appealing at all to me.  I think this is something that you need to eat fresh.  3 stars.

    German Pancakes ideally should be thin and puffy. I think this might be much better if I halved the ingredients so it wouldn't be so thick. I'm definitely going to try it because German Pancakes are very popular in my household.

  3. I have seen a recipe like this only using bread or cake flour.
