sweet german breakfast pancakes

easy sweet german pancake recipe

For the past few weeks I’ve been really into breakfast (especially on the weekends). I’d previously gotten into a bad habit of grabbing a bar or a handful of Puffins and calling it a meal. But I’m trying to reform my grab-and-go mentality, realizing the first food in my system starts the day. And while this recipe is called a pancake, I don’t want to confuse that with the traditional type. It’s more of a crepe mixed with French toast consistency. Also, it’s not sweet by itself. So, although we chose the syrup and powdered sugar route, you can definitely go savory with spices, cheese, and meat. See full recipe below.

cast iron pancake skillet


3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 pinch salt
½ cup milk
½ cup flour
2 Tbsp butter


1. Preheat the oven to 450 F.
2. Place a pie dish, or cast iron skillet, in the oven.
3. By hand, or in the blender, combine the eggs, vanilla, salt, and milk. Blend for a few seconds, until smooth.
4. Add the flour, and mix only until incorporated.
5. With the pan still in the oven, put the butter into the pan. When the butter has melted, remove the pan and gently pour that batter into the center of the pan.
6. Return the pan to the oven, and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until puffed and golden.
7. Serve with syrup, powdered sugar and lemon, sour cream and brown sugar, or whatever else suits your fancy!
