You know those slow mornings, when you wake up and have nothing pressing to do and don’t feel like cleaning either.. so you fix up and big breakfast and lounge in your PJ’s. Oh, maybe that’s just me? This is that favorite breakfast we fix up. German Pancakes.
German pancakes are such an easy breakfast that bakes up quick with only using a few dishes to make. And lucky me, my husband loves to fix it. Great plain, with syrup, peanut butter, or jam.
Here is how you make this german pancake delight of a breakfast…
Start off by placing your stick of butter in your pan. Place that pan in the oven and preheat it. During the preheating your butter will melt. Just be sure not to scortch your butter.
While your butter is melting, mix up the batter. Crack six eggs into the blender and the remaining ingredients. Flour, salt, sugar.. and pulse to combine till smooth.and mix for 2 minutes. Getting the eggs nice and frothy. This is key to making the perfect german pancakes! You need this eggs blended a whole 2 minutes!
Pour the batter directly into your pan of melted buttery goodness. No need to stir.
Then bake! (uncovered) Once you remove it from the oven the sides will have risen up and the middle beautifully bubbled. The kids love seeing this part. I’ve noticed that when I use a slightly larger pan such as an 11X14 the bubbling is more dramatic. But the pancakes will be thinner. 9X13 pans still rise and bubble a little and the pancakes are slightly thicker. If you have a cast iron skillet you can use that too, they make a beautiful pancake.
And there you have some warm, soft German Pancakes to serve your hungry lazy Saturday morning tummies. Breakfast in bed anyone?
