German Pancake Recipe

Here is a German pancake recipe that I enjoy making because it uses a lot of eggs, which we happen to have a lot of. It is so tasty. One pancake will serve from four to six people. It cooks up into a large circle or rectangle, depending on what oven proof pan you use to bake it.

When I was a teenager, our family moved from Poughkeepsie, New York to El Paso, Texas and we stayed at the Mesa Inn for three weeks until our new house was ready. While there, we ate a lot of delicious new foods that we had never experienced before. One of the things I had several times was the German pancake. Light and fluffy, it became my new favorite. So here is my favorite German pancake recipe. I hope your family will love it like I do.

This delicious German pancake recipe will serve your entire family for breakfast. Serve with powdered sugar and lemon juice, syrup, or fruit preserves. It is light and fluffy, not heavy.This delicious German pancake recipe will serve your entire family for breakfast. Serve with powdered sugar and lemon juice, syrup, or fruit preserves.

German Pancake Recipe Ingredients

You will need:

  • 6 Large Eggs (we use our farm fresh eggs and I use between 8 and 10, depending on the size of the eggs.)
  • 1 Cup Milk (We use organic 2%)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla or Almond Extract (I prefer the vanilla extract)
  • 1 Cup flour (White, Wheat, or a half cup of each) It tastes pretty good all 3 ways, but white flour is our favorite.)
  • Dash of Salt
  • 4 Tablespoons of Butter
  • A 9 x 13 inch oven-proof pan

First, put the four tablespoons of butter into the baking pan. Place the pan in the oven and preheat the oven to 425° Fahrenheit.

Place the eggs, milk, vanilla, flour, and salt in a large bowl and whisk it all together until smooth.

Pull the hot pan out of the oven with the melted butter. Pour the pancake batter into the baking dish.

Bake The German Pancake

The rectangular stone I got from Pampered Chef is my favorite pan for this German Pancake recipe.The rectangular stone I got from Pampered Chef is my favorite pan for this German Pancake recipe.

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Slice and serve with a sweet topping. Some suggestions are listed above. Another way to enjoy this is with berries and cream or with a proper pie filling. This dish will quickly become a family favorite on holidays and on weekends, when you have extra time to be with the family.
