German Pancakes are my family’s absolute favorite breakfast.
Well, they are their almost-favorite breakfast. Homemade waffles are the favorite, favorite breakfast of all time, but German Pancakes are an extremely close second. Whenever I make them, shouts of “Hurrah!” and “Oh boy!” fill our kitchen.
They are so easy to make, too. Like super-duper-uper-trooper-looper easy to make. Here’s what you do…
- 6 eggs
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 cup of white flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Beat the eggs until they are light and foamy.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
Spray a square baking pan with vegetable spray.
Pour the batter into the pan. Bake at 425 degrees for about 25 minutes.
Open the oven and squeal with happiness when you see your pretty, puffed up German pancake!
Serve with fresh fruit, whipped cream, jam, or any variety of syrup you have on hand. German Pancakes aren’t fussy and seem to taste good with almost anything on top of them. We had them with fresh peaches and some of my homemade peach syrup this time.
Here’s a bottle of my syrup. It’s so yummy. I’ll have to teach you how to make it another day.
