One of our favorite breakfast recipes are these German Pancakes that are baked in the oven. They are so easy to make and are a huge hit with every one in the family. These German Pancakes Recipe are probably the most requested breakfast recipe in our home. When guests come over to stay, these always make an appearance!
This is a recipe I found from The Recipe Critic, and though we have tried other recipes, this is the one we always come back too. I don’t even bother trying other recipes anymore because we haven’t found one that is better in our opinion…and you might as well not re-invent the wheel…am I right?!
Our favorite way to enjoy them is to cover them with some fresh fruit and sprinkle them with confectioner’s sugar. The kids sometimes add maple syrup. If I am ambitious enough, I will make our Homemade Buttermilk Syrup (yummy) to drizzle over the german pancakes!
