German Pancake

When Sunday morning rolled around I decided to try a new recipe. "German Pancakes". These are also called baked pancakes or bubbly pancakes. Did you know my maiden last name is German? Of course not, you don't even know my Maiden name. But yes, its was originated in Germany, but I'm not German.

My daughter came home so she could go to church. We listened to the Christmas cantata with a following covered dish dinner. I think I ate a little dab of everything. Its always so good. There are a lot of good cooks in my church family.

Every morning that my daughter is here, I always make her breakfast. I do not think she has ever waken up at home without a breakfast from the day she was born. Usually its a cooked breakfast because Its my favorite meal to fix and its also the most important meal of the day.

This recipe was really delicious and easy. While cooking, it begins to look weird and then started to bubble in the middle and the sides start to come over the edge of the dish as they stop just in time with a golden brown trim.  

Ok, when I just said that it bubbled in the middle, I could not help but think about Stymies surprise cake from the little rascals.

Once the pancake is finished, you cut and dish it out like pie and add your favorite toppings. I used powdered sugar. I tried it with syrup also and it was still a win.

Today I am going to share this recipe with you. It will be perfect to fix on Christmas morning for the family. I may make this again along with my sausage balls.

  2. Exactly! No sugar and still so good!

  3. German pancakes are one of my favorite dishes. They are so easy and make a nice presentation dressed with all kinds of toppings. And, I also like yorkshire pudding especially with prime rib at the holidays. Thanks for sharing a great reminder for me to make German pancakes soon.

  4. Well, to a southerner, yep that is different, but it does look delicious. I could definitely go for it with the powdered sugar. (I fell in love with the Beignets(?) in Nawlins covered with powdered sugar)

    MERRY CHRISTMAS from Wildwood Florida!

  5. This sounds amazing! YUMMY!

  6. You make cooking look so simple Lisa! All of your dishes come out looking so delicious. I from time to time think about "I wonder if Lisa would be happy owning her own Catering Company". Just a thought to pass on to you......
