Eier-Kuchen - 5 points

Eier Kuchen (from the Loaves and Fishes book Dom at Belleau Kitchen inspired me to pull off the shelf) are a lovely, thin German pancake. They have the pliability and light texture of a crepe. They are versatile - equally good topped with cottage cheese and chives or smothered in cinnamon cream syrup (as below).  They have the added bonus of being kind to one's diet - three pancakes for only five points.

4 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
pinch of salt
1. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs. Add flour, milk, and salt; beat until smooth.
2. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Pour out pancakes by 1/4 cup. Flip when bubbles form and the edges are dry.
3. Yields 4, 5 point servings (approximately 3 pancakes per serving)

If you would like the recipe for the taste bud tempting cinnamon cream syrup, it is posted directly below this recipe. Yes, two posts in one day - I know, I know. Too much. I am just trying to catch up a bit, and I am anxious to post on the cookie I made tonight for the Random Recipe challenge!
