Fruity German Pancakes

We have a new favorite recipe.
It's a breakfast food, but we often eat if for dinner.
When I was growing up,
we'd eat these pancakes (the non-fruit variety)
every Christmas morning,
so they were called "Christmas Morning Pancakes".
Now we love this old/new recipe with some fruit added.
With no sugar in the pancake itself,
it's easy to control the sweetness.
German Pancakes

6 Tbsp. butter
sliced fruit
(our favorites are apples or peaches – peeled and thinly sliced, but I'm dying to try strawberries or blueberries)
brown sugar
8 large eggs
2 cups flour
2 cups milk
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla

Heat oven to 400.  Melt butter in 9X12 pan in oven.  Sprinkle pan with brown sugar and cinnamon.  Lay sliced fruit into pan.

Beat remaining ingredients.  Pour into cake pan.  Bake 30-35 minutes, or until browned.  Serve warm with lemon juice and powdered sugar.

We have several tiny shakers.
I fill them part-way with powdered sugar and give each child one.
Sometimes they shake them on, but sometimes they resort to eating the sugar straight from the shaker.
