German Pancakes

A favorite warm breakfast in our house!

Original recipe:

6 eggs
1 C Flour
1 C fat free Milk
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt

2 Tbsp. butter (I used brummel and brown)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Melt 4 TBSP butter in 1 1/2 qt casserole dish in oven(***side note: the original recipe calls for a 9x13 pan, but I love mine thick and choose to do it in a smaller pan so it is more substantial.) Meanwhile, in a BLENDER or with a hand mixer, mix all ingredients VERY WELL. Pour into preheated pan and bake at 450 for 25 minutes. Serve with 1 tsp powdered sugar (0 pt+) and lite or sugar free syrup.

Each recipe makes 6  (1 piece) servings - 5 pt+

We love german pancakes at our house. We put sautaed apples on ours, here's the recipe for them if you want to try it.
6 large apples sliced
3tbsp brown sugar
1/4 c apple juice
1tsp cinnamon

Cook all together in skillet untill apples are tender. serve over pancake.

I really don't follow the recipe all the way. Sometimes I add more juice so there is more to put on the pancake, and I add a bit more cinnamon. I cook this while the pancake is cooking.

This looks just like Grandma Danes' recipe, but when I cook it at 450 for 25 minutes in a 9x13 I end up with the top and sides burnt...I've been experimenting with a lower temperature.

Wow! I've never met anyone outside my family who even knows what German Pancakes are! I guess it's not really something you discuss every day, but the people I have mentioned it to give me a blank stare when I bring it up. Our family loves german pancakes--we top them the same way you do, although my mom and grandmother sprinkle it with lemon and powdered sugar the way tawnie does.

I have been using this recipe only with a 9 X13 and my only complaint is that it is so thin...thanks...I tried it and they are much better thicker!
