German Pancake

This came from SnoWhite and my family absolutely loved it! We normally have pancakes for breakfast on Saturdays, but today I just wasn't in the mood for them. This fit the bill for something easy and quick and super delicious! We will keep this around for sure.
It's really like a dense cake, not too sweet, but definitely not eggy like some German pancakes I've tried.


2 eggs
1 C milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 C sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 C whole wheat flour
1/2 C all-purpose flour
1/4 c. wheat germ
1 T baking powder
1 T butter

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, sugar and vanilla.
Then, in another bowl, combine flours, wheat germ and baking powder.
Mix the wet and dry ingredients together and stir until well mixed.
Let this mixture sit for 10 minutes.
While the mix sits, preheat your oven to 400. Melt 1 T butter in a glass pie plate (or an 8x8 pan would work just fine) as the oven preheats.
When the butter is melted, and your 10 minute time is up, pour the batter into the hot pie plate.
Bake for ~15 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
While the pancake bakes, prepare a fruity syrup. I used mixed berries to make a doubled version of this.

Serve warm, topped with warm fruit. Sprinkle powdered sugar over the top, if desired.
