Nearly every Tuesday at our house we have breakfast for dinner. I know, I know, it is supposed to be Taco Tuesday but we rarely eat tacos on Tuesday. Pancakes, eggs, bacon and more is what we are eating on Tuesday nights. We started having breakfast on Tuesday years ago and it worked out perfect because our Tuesday nights are super busy. Breakfast is fast and east to make. These German pancakes are often on our menu as well because they seriously take less than 5 minutes to whip up.
I remember having these pancakes as a child. My mom used to make them in muffin tins and it was our own little personal puff. I usually make them in a 9×13 but as of late, I have had to triple the recipe and make them in a big sheet cake pan. My girls can eat these like they are going out of style. I can’t imagine if we had boys, I’d probably have to make 2 sheet pans full.
(Don’t mind the camera photo-sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do).
Just turn your oven to 400, stick your pan with butter in while it is pre-heating and mix up your batter. Once the butter is melted you will just pour your batter over the melted butter, cook for 20 minutes and they will be hot and bubbly and ready to eat.
Once you remove them from the oven, they will start to flatten out. They are crispy, buttery and soft and one of our family favorites. Top them with your favorite toppings. We usually enjoy them with powdered sugar and syrup, but I also love them with some homemade jam.
