German Pancakes

This is a delicious breakfast, or an even better quick and easy dinner.  We love breakfast for dinner occasionally, and these German pancakes make an easy one.  Add some bacon on the side, and you're all set.  This only feeds about four people, though, so if you have a bigger family, you'll want to double it and put it in two pans.
I'm usually a syrup girl, but on this puffy pancake, I like fruity topping.
German Pancakes
Turn your oven on to 450.  Spray a 13 x 9 pan with cooking spray, then put in 4 Tablespoons of butter.  Put the pan in the oven while the oven preheats to melt the butter.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, beat:
6 eggs, then add
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
Take the pan out of the now preheated oven and pour the batter over the melted butter.  Put the pan back in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes until puffy.  Cut and serve with syrup or fruit topping.  Here are some ideas for the fruit topping:
Cut up any kind of fresh berries or fruit.  Top with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of brown sugar.  Or here's a yummy fruit topping:
1 (10 oz) pkg. frozen raspberries or strawberries, thawed
1 can pineapple tidbits or chunks, drained
1 banana, sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sour cream
Top with the fruit, then the sour cream and brown sugar.  Yum!!!  I wonder if they really eat these in Germany?
