German Pancakes

By October 9, 2012August 10th, 2022No Comments

I guess I was being too presumptuous assuming everyone had the ‘basic’ recipe of German Pancakes. I am actually grateful to post this recipe because whenever I need to make it I have to search through my Grandma’s cookbook. So, here is the super easy and fun recipe for German Pancakes. I loved to top these pancakes with our homemade apple pie filling. They are also great with fresh berries, butter syrup or cinnamon syrup. You can even do a savory version by adding diced pieces of ham, peppers, green onions, cheese, etc. on top of the egg before you bake it. Once you bake it the items sink into the pancake and make a yummy, cheesy breakfast. The sky is the limit!!

The slightly crisp edges are my favorite part. They have all the nice butter on them that gives these pancakes that delicious flavor!

  • 8 eggs
  • 2 Tbs. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 stick butter


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and place a 9x13 pan in the oven with the half stick of butter. While the butter is melting, crack the eggs in a large bowl and whisk with a whisk until the eggs are frothy and smooth. Once the eggs are light and airy, add the salt, milk, sugar and flour and continue to whisk until the flour is combined and smooth (you don't want flour clumps or it's too thick). Once the mixture is smooth, remove the pan from the oven, swirl the butter all around and then pour the egg batter into the dish. Place back in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges have risen and the pancake is nice and golden brown. Remove from the oven, let the pancake sink a little and then serve as desired.
