German Pancakes


We’re Back!!! Shannon and I have had a nice holiday break and spent some time with family and friends. But we are ready to start sharing some of our tried and true, family favorite recipes again! We hope that 2012 finds each of you well and happy and wish the best for a healthy and prosperous new year. We are still in the middle of trying to get our cookbook out! It is taking way longer than we anticipated to find the right publisher, but we hope to make some serious headway this year! So I am starting with a family favorite around our household. A simple, but delicious German Pancake. While it is definitely a breakfast dish, there is no harm in admitting that I have served this for dinner before. Who doesn’t like breakfast for dinner every once in a while? The coolest thing about the German Pancake is the shape it takes on while in the oven. It puffs, it grows, it appears to be trying to escape your pan. If you have little ones (like I do), they will probably want to sit by the oven and watch this transformation take place!

German Pancakes

  • 1 stick of butter
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flour

While oven is being preheated to 425 degrees, put the stick of butter in a 9×13 baking dish and put in the oven. While butter is melting, blend together in a medium mixing bowl: milk, eggs and salt. Use an electric mixer or blender. Gradually add flour. When batter is smooth with no lumps, pour over the melted butter in the 9×13 pan. (make sure to keep an eye on that butter and not burn it!) Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cut into serving sizes and top with syrup, powdered sugar, or jam!
