Best German Pancake Recipes

Did I tell you how much I like breakfast recipes? We like breakfast so much that we have one evening dinner every week. Do you do the same thing?

We especially like pancakes (such as our buttermilk pancakes and blueberry pancakes), but another favorite that our family has made since childhood is German pancakes. My parents have been doing this for as long as I can remember, and they have always been my favorites. Now that I grow up, we make them for our own family, and I remember how delicious and simple they are.

This is one of the recipes that you don’t need to plan ahead, because you almost always have the ingredients on hand. My kids like to watch it bake, because when you put it in the oven, it will become fluffy and the sides of the pan will start to curl!

The finished product is like a combination of eggs and pancakes. If you have eaten them, you will know how delicious they are. We usually have regular syrup, but I think I need to make buttermilk syrup next time because really…you can’t beat homemade buttermilk syrup.

Are these the same as Dutch baby pancakes?

They are very similar, but they also differ in that Dutch baby pancakes contain more butter and are usually made in a pan or pan with rounded edges.

German pancakes are usually made in baking pans or casseroles. In addition, if fruit is involved, most people put the fruit on top of Dutch babies while baking it in German pancakes.

How to make German pancakes:

As I mentioned before, this puff pancake recipe requires only 5 simple ingredients:

  • Egg
  • milk
  • flour
  • Salt
  • butter

First preheat the oven to 450°. When the oven is preheating, put the eggs in a bowl and stir, then add milk, flour and salt. Put the butter in a 9×13 pan and put it in a warm oven.

After melting, take it out of the oven and pour the mixed batter onto the melted butter. Bake for 15-20 minutes. It will overflow and fluffy on both sides, but it will calm down once you take it out of the oven. Serve immediately with syrup, cinnamon, or anything that sounds great!

Want to make the softest German pancakes?

German puff pancakes will rise significantly and will fall after cooling. These two tips will help make them as fluffy as possible:

  • For some reason, baking in metal pans and glass pans can help.
  • Use the freshest eggs possible. Add eggs one at a time, and beat each egg for 30 seconds.

How do I store leftover German pancakes? The following is the description of the refrigerator and freezer…

  • Refrigerator: Cover the lid and store in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Reheat in the oven or toaster oven. If you are in a hurry, a microwave oven can also be used.
  • Freezer: Cut into serving size pieces. Wrap each piece with plastic film and put it in a freezer-safe airtight container. Freeze for 1-2 months. Reheat: Place the desired amount of pancakes on the baking sheet and cover loosely with a piece of foil. Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for about 10-15 or until hot.

Seriously, these are the best! ! ! I think we will make them on breakfast night this week. 😉
