One of my most requested breakfast recipes are these German Pancakes. They have been a family favorite for years. I grew up eating these and have passed the recipe on to my own family. I love to make them on a busy school morning because they literally blend up in a few minutes. They do have to bake for 20 minutes so all you have to do is get them started first thing. Then they will be ready to go before you kids leave for school.
GERMAN PANCAKE RECIPE
This classic german pancake recipe is a great recipe to make when you have company or have to feed a few people at once. I sometimes have to make two batches when all my kids are home. My big boys like to eat 4-5 pieces of these german pancakes.
We love to eat ours with a little bit of powdered sugar sprinkled on the top of the german pancakes. Then the kids love to add some whipping cream, fresh fruit and top it with a little bit of our favorite buttermilk syrup or maple syrup!
HOW TO MAKE GERMAN PANCAKES
There are a few tips for making german pancakes that will help your pancakes be light and super puffy. If you follow these tips for how to make german pancakes, it should help you get the best results possible.
- The pan needs to be hot before putting your batter into it. So don’t skip the part where you melt the butter in the pan in the oven. Don’t melt the butter in the microwave which may seem easier. The hot pan helps the pancakes begin to puff immediately. Preheat the oven with the butter in the pan so it can melt as the oven and the pan warm up. Then pour the batter directly into the hot pan.
- Using white all purpose flour will give you the best, fluffy pancakes. You can use wheat flour, just know that they pancakes will not be as fluffy.
- Use real butter. While the butter is melting rub a little of the butter stick up on the sides of the pan. This helps the pastry puff up the sides of the pan.
- Only use real eggs and not an egg substitute for this recipe.
- The type of pan you use will also effect the results. I get pretty good results with my 9×13 glass pan. You can also use a cast iron skillet to get great results.
