Guten Tag: German Puff Pancakes

Pin It

Today I wanted to share one of my family's FAVORITE breakfast recipes! They are call German Puff Pancakes. I don't know if they are actually German, but they are actually good! The taste and texture is nothing like American pancakes. It tastes more like french toast than pancakes and the textures is truly unique.

They are very simple to make. Gather these ingredients:

Once you have all these ingredients together plus a 9X9 pan, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Now place the butter in the lightly greased pan (I sprayed mine with a thin coat of olive oil) and put it in the oven to melt.

Now you need to mix all the other ingredients together. I sometimes add a little sugar to the batter to make it a little sweet. It's a total taste preference though. 

Now pull that pan out of the oven {once the butter is melted and bubbly} and carefully pour the batter in. Place back in the hot oven.

 Meanwhile, put together your favorite fruit. We like frozen blueberries {thawed} and strawberries.

Look! Its Pooffing! hehe! To my kids, this part is like magic! They love to watch it get bigger and bigger!
 Compleatly poofed! I cook it in the oven for about 25 minutes...give or take a few.
Now I cut it up ans serve with fruit and a dusting of powdered sugar! Mmmmm!

You can double this recipe and put it in a 13X9 to feed more! Its easier than doing batches and batches of American pancakes! You just mix, pour, bake! I hope your family will give this one a try sometime soon!

Guten Appetit!
