German Pancakes

This is a great recipe that I think we got from my Cousin in Stockton Chicky. They look a bit odd but taste great and are easy to make.

First, take a 9x13 pan and place in about 4 tablespoons or 1/2 cube of butter and set it in a 400Degree oven to melt. While waiting for that to melt mix the following together:

8 eggs
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
3 tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Vanilla

Blend these all together until they are very smooth. Pull the pan from the oven and pour in the batter (It will be the consistency of half and half, thicker than milk but not as thick as cream). Place back in the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes or until The sides of puffed up and the center is cooked and not jelly like.

Serve with powdered sugar or maple syrup. It is great.

Another variation is to brown off some sausage or bacon and throw it in the batter and bake the pancake with the sausage or bacon inside. This is great as well. Enjoy.

  1. Yay! Thank you very much for the recipe. I think I will make them for dinner tonight. Next time I come over, I will bring that book.

  2. This reminds me of an Apple Pancake recipe I used to make. It was basically the same batter (without the sugar) but I would saute a whole, sliced Granny Smith apple with a 1/2 cup Brown Sugar and 2 TB Butter. Just as the apples were softening and the sugar was about to caramelize I would put in a couple teaspoons of Cinnamon and the batter. I used a Teflon pan (which I know you hate) but any skillet you can cure with that shape would work. It is a very rich and sweet dish so a lot of customers would order them for dessert.
