What's For Breakfast? - German Pancakes

I received an easy and interesting-sounding recipe for German pancakes this morning from  Piper and I jumped on it of course, and it proved to be a really pleasant breakfast dish.  I didn't know what to expect as I had never even heard of German pancakes before, and here is how I would describe it:  A mellow, dense, filling, and somehow sweet (although I don't know how as the recipe doesn't call for any sugar) breakfast that oddly resembles a combination of flan, quiche, and French toast.  I may rename it Germench Fluichoast (pronounced DJUR-MENCH, FLEESH-OST).

First of all you must realize that it is far too early to be doing anything on a Sunday morning besides popping the bubbles surrounding your head while aimlessly wandering through the house with your first mug of coffee.
 Shake it off, now let's get started!


1.  1/4 cup of butter  (4 tablespoons), (I used real butter, not margarine)
2.  1 cup of all-purpose flour
3.  1 cup milk (I used whole milk)
4.  6 eggs, lightly beaten
5.  1/8 tsp. salt


1. Preheat oven to 350.
2.  Melt butter in a medium baking dish.
 3.  In a medium bowl, mix flour, milk, eggs, and salt.
 4.  Pour the mixture into prepared baking dish, in the center of the butter.  It should look like this:
 5.  Bake 30 to 40 minutes, until golden brown!
 6. Drizzle with maple syrup....ENJOY!


  1. Will you come make these for me next Sunday?

  2. Sure! Let me just fly right back down to the Caribbean real quick! See you then!

  3. Bailey... you do realize he is passed out due to lack of oxygen.

  4. Oh wow, I guess that was clear back on June 12th. Sorry Marty! Woopsies daisies!
