German Pancakes

gluten free german pancake
I was looking through some old cookbooks of my mom's and I found this recipe written on a piece of paper. It looked very simple, so I tried it out. It reminds me of a dutch baby, and has a flavor that is reminiscent of french toast. I really like it, and I'll probably be making it again.

German Pancake
1/3 c. flour (a mixture of corn starch, sorghum, and brown rice flour, a little of each just kinda spooned into the measuring cup)
pinch of xanthan gum
1/3 c. milk
2 eggs
1/2 T. sugar
1/4 t. salt

Whisk the eggs, sugar, salt, and milk together, then whisk in the flour until smooth. Pour it into a greased 8-inch pan and bake it at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes until it's slightly brown on the edges and done all the way through.
Top it with powdered sugar. (I used syrup as well)

Makes 1 big pancake, enough for 1 person if that's all you're eating, or 2 people if you're eating other stuff with it.

I think it might be neat to try making it savory, with cheese or something.

P.S. Make sure you grease the pan really well because mine stuck.
