German Pancakes

We had never made German pancakes before, but I had been seeing them pop up on blogs and now and then on Pinterest. New Years Eve, I decided that we would have to try to make them for a new tradition on New Years morning. We didn't have a new year's morning tradition yet, so why not try something new?

Luckily through the power of Facebook, I was able to quickly get a great recipe for the pancake from a friend who always posts wonderful recipes. It turned out to be so tasty! We are going to use this as our new year morning breakfast from now on! A new tradition has been born.

6 eggs
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cube butter
lemon juice
powdered sugar
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Combine eggs, flour, milk and salt & blend well in blender. Melt 1 cube butter in 13X9 dish. Pour batter directly into hot dish, bake 18 minutes (adjust for your oven). Sprinkle with lemon & powdered sugar.

We didn't have lemon on hand so we used maple syrup and powdered sugar. It was heaven! 

Have you ever eaten German pancakes? I learned that they are called a lot of different names from hoot nannys to Popeye pancakes! Whatever you call them, they are really yummy! Do you have a tradition for new years day?


  1. Hello,
    thanks so much for the recipe! My husband is from Germany and his family lives there - i'd love to make these for him! One stupid question - how much is one cube of butter?

  2. 1/4 cup of butter. Not a stupid question at all! :)
