HOW TO MAKE GERMAN PANCAKES:
As I mentioned before, this puff pancake recipe requires just 5 simple ingredients:
Preheat the oven to 450° very first thing. While the oven is warming up, whip the eggs together in a bowl and then add the milk, flour, and salt. Put your butter in the 9×13 pan, and place in the warmed oven.
Once it is melted, remove from the oven, and pour the mixed batter on top of the melted butter. Bake for 15-20 minutes. The sides will be overflowing and fluffy but will calm down once you take it out of the oven. Serve immediately with syrup, cinnamon or whatever sounds great to you!
WANT TO CREATE THE FLUFFIEST GERMAN PANCAKE POSSIBLE?
German puff pancakes will rise considerably then fall when cooled. These two tricks will help keep them as puffy as possible:
- For some reason baking in a metal pan vs a glass pan helps.
- Use the freshest eggs possible. Add one egg at a time and beat for 30 seconds after each egg.
How do I store leftover german pancakes? Here are instructions for the both the fridge and freezer…
- Fridge: Cover and store in the fridge for 2-3 days. Reheat in the oven or a toaster oven. If you’re in a hurry the microwave will also work.
- Freezer: Cut into serving size pieces. Wrap each piece with plastic wrap and place in a freezer safe airtight container. Freeze for 1-2 months. To reheat: place the desired amount of pancakes on a baking sheet and cover loosely with a piece of foil. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. bake for about 10-15 or until warm.
