German Pancakes


I love German pancakes. I remember making them a lot growing up. I am actually pretty sure they were one of the first breakfast dishes I learned to make besides toast. They are so easy to whip up, and they don’t contain very many ingredients. My side of the family is actually German, so this is a fun tradition I would like to continue in my little family. My Grandma has a little German pancake pan that she cooks her pancakes on the stove top rather than in the oven. I am in search of one of these pans to add to my kitchen tools. Hope you enjoy this yummy breakfast dish!

6 T Butter, sliced
1 C Flour
1 C Milk
6 Eggs
1/2 tsp Salt
Powdered Sugar
Maple Syrup

For the strawberries I just take a handful of frozen strawberries and defrost them for about 3 minutes in the microwave. Then take a fork and smash them. This will make a great strawberry sauce for your pancakes.
Preheat oven to 400F.  Place butter in 9×13″ baking pan and let it melt in the oven.  While you wait, mix flour, milk, eggs, and salt together in a bowl.  Remove pan with melted butter from the oven and pour batter into the pan.  Return the pan to the oven for 15-20 minutes.  The sides will rise quite a bit, so make sure it is in the middle or lower section of the oven.
