German Pancakes are incredibly simple to make and come together in a snap. Light, fluffy and absolutely delicious. Serve them with fresh fruit and a dusting of powdered sugar, cinnamon & sugar or syrup! Perfect for any time of the day!
German pancakes . . . have you heard of them? I’m sure you have, but maybe you know them by the name Dutch baby or hootenanny pancakes (that was what we called them). They’re a hot and puffy golden pancake made from eggs, milk, flour and vanilla. They require only about 5 minutes of prep time and they’re ready to go in the oven. Easy peasy!
I loved these growing up and if my very terrible memory serves me right, my Uncle Jim always made them.
They are delicious for breakfast and even better for dinner (because we love breakfast for dinner). Give these a try and I can almost guarantee they will become a staple in your house.
You can serve these pancakes with fresh fruit and powdered sugar, cinnamon & sugar, maple syrup or my fabulous buttermilk syrup.
HOW TO MAKE GERMAN PANCAKES.
- Preheat the oven to 450°F with the baking dish inside so it can get nice and hot while the oven preheats. Once the oven reaches temperature, carefully add the butter to the pan and let it melt (this only takes a minute or two).
- While the oven is warming up, add the eggs, milk, vanilla, flour and salt to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour batter into the baking dish, over the melted butter.
- Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and puffy.
