Easy German Pancakes {recipe}

How to Make German Pancakes is easy peasy.  The prep time is minimal, the aroma that infuses your house while it’s baking is to die for (from the butter), and the flavor and texture is heavenly.  My family LOVES this recipe.  In fact, my kids would probably eat it every morning if I’d make it for them.  I like that this recipe fluffs up when it’s cooking and can be topped with anything you like to make it versatile-jam, jelly, syrup, etc.  This German Pancake Recipe combines milk, eggs and butter to make the yummy goodness.  The resulting breakfast dish is delicious!

  1. Whenever I put Chris in charge of cooking, he makes these. The best way to eat them is with lemon juice and gobs of powdered sugar— tastes like a lemon bar. yum.

  2. I really love these my kids are fans though…. Maybe if I topped them better they would LOVE them!

  3. I like the idea of this recipe but as a German I have to say I’ve never ever in my whole life seen anyone in Germany bake pancakes like that. My family and my husband’s family don’t bake them like this and neither do my friends. At least not those I’ve eaten pancakes with so far. Anyways, as long as the recipe’s good… 😀

    • Anke: I wondered about the origination of this recipe as I’ve also seen it referred to as “Dutch Pancakes”????

  4. My brother in law is German and my sister makes German pancakes for him and I’ve bugged her for the recipe. Now… well, now I don’t have to anymore!

  5. I cannot recall just how much time I lost in search ofa quality report.
