Make these Dutch Baby Pancakes, sometimes called German pancakes, a Bismarck, or a Dutch puff, is a sweet popover that is normally served for breakfast.
Whatever you call them….Dutch Baby Pancakes, sometimes called German pancakes, a Bismarck, or a Dutch puff, is a sweet popover that is normally served for breakfast. When I was growing up we ate these a few times. Watching them puff up in the oven while they baked was my favorite part of making these. I kind of forgot about them until just recently when I was searching for a new breakfast recipe to enjoy on a upcoming lazy Sunday morning.
Without a doubt, my entire family really enjoyed them. I was not prepared for just how much the rest of my family enjoyed them. Believe it or not, we ended up making 3 more batches! They were especially delicious with the homemade Buttermilk Syrup I made to go with them.
DUTCH BABY PANCAKE
They are pretty tasty with the Buttermilk Syrup alone, but next time I would like to try adding some fresh fruit to them. Add some veggies, ham, bacon and a little sprinkle of cheese to turn them into more of a savory breakfast. I might be violating some of the “authenticity” of the Dutch Baby Pancakes (German Pancakes)…but it’s fun to experiment with different combinations!
