BEST German Pancake Recipe
Have I told you guys how much I LOVE breakfast recipes? We love breakfast so much that we have it for DINNER one night a week. Do you do the same thing? One of the recipes we have enjoyed ever since I was little are German Pancakes. My parents have been making these for as long as I can remember, and they were always a favorite. Now that I’m older, we make them for our own family and I’m reminded just how yummy and simple they are.
This is one of those recipes that you don’t really need to plan ahead for, because you almost always have the ingredients on hand. My kids love watching it bake, because when you put it in the oven, it gets all puffy and the sides start curling up the pan! The finished product is like eggs and pancakes in one, and if you’ve had them before you know just how yummy they are. We usually have regular syrup with them, but I’m thinking I need to make Buttermilk Syrup next time because really… You can’t beat homemade buttermilk syrup.
Top it off with powdered sugar!!
How to make German Pancakes:
As I mentioned before, this recipe requires just 5 simple ingredients:
Preheat the oven to 450° very first thing. While the oven is warming up, whip the eggs together in a bowl and then add the milk, flour, and salt. Put your butter in the 9×13 pan, and place in the warmed oven. Once it is melted, remove from the oven, and pour the mixed batter on top of the melted butter. Bake for 15-20 minutes. The sides will be overflowing and fluffy but will calm down once you take it out of the oven. Serve immediately with syrup, cinnamon or whatever sounds great to you!
Seriously, these are the best!!! I think we’ll make them this week for Breakfast night. 😉
