Gluten Free Reality's German Pancakes

I'm yearning for a g-f german pancake, that fluffy magic egg dish that Momma made all those years ago.  She whipped up a dozen eggs, two cups of milk, a couple cups of flour, poured it into an industrial sized, deep jelly roll pan and in a half hour had breakfast for eleven. 
    1.  It was amazing to watch the magnificence reach the top of the oven before it deflated on our plates.  We didn't have it often, (it did take an egg a person and that was not frugal use of eggs for a family who was already using a dozen dozen each week) still, I remember it being magical.

6 eggs

1 cup milk
1 cup g-f  flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp gum, guar or xanthan 


3 T melted butter in the pan

She baked it for about 20 minutes, and then served it with our favorite condiment, a quart of ketsup.  

Hey, it's a vegetable right?  

Instructions, Preheat oven to 375.  Mix all ingredients, beating eggs first, adding the flour and milk alternately. A few minutes before finishing the mixing, put the casserole in to warm and melt the butter.  Slather the butter around the bottom and pour in the mixed ingredients.  

Bake until set 20-25 minutes and try to be the lucky kid who gets the edges.  They are the best!
