EASY GERMAN PANCAKES

The other night I realized that dinner time was rapidly approaching and there was still no food on the table. As I looked through my recipe books, I looked for something quick, delicious, and easy.

I stumbled upon this German Pancake recipe; courtesy of an old college roommate. Combining three simple ingredients, this five-minute recipe became an instant family favorite!

These German Pancakes are extremely filling, yummy, and simple! Enjoy!

HOW TO MAKE GERMAN PANCAKES:

Remember, all you need are 3 simple ingredients!

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 6 eggs
  • (you’ll also need butter for the pan!)

Once you have your ingredients, you start combining!

Start by mixing flour, milk, and eggs in a bowl.

Next, melt 6T of butter in a 9 X 13 pan and pour the mixture directly on top of butter. DO NOT MIX.

Then, bake 15-18 minutes at 450 degrees.

And once you start smelling that sweet smell, remove from oven and serve with fresh fruit of syrup!

FAQS ABOUT GERMAN PANCAKES:

Q: What are German pancakes?
A: While the name says pancakes, these won’t look or taste like American pancakes. German pancakes are an egg-based “pancake” where you bake an egg, flour, and milk mixture. Baking causes the pancakes to rise in a unique way. They’ll feel a little closer to a crepe than a pancake and are really filling.

 

Q: What do you serve with German pancakes?
A: German pancakes are great with a layer of butter and then a topping of lemon juice, fruit, powdered sugar, or syrup. You could also try topping with whip cream, chocolate chips, or peanut butter for more variety.

 

Q: What are German Pancakes called, and why?
A: German pancakes were first created in America and inspired by Dutch immigrants. They are also called Dutch baby or Dutch puff and were inspired by the German Pfannkuchen.
