Breakfast is always a struggle at our house because mornings are always so busy!  I love to surprise the kiddos with a delicious and hot breakfast at least once a week before school.  That is why we love German Pancakes at our house.

5 minutes of prep with ingredients that you have on hand.  This breakfast is totally doable even for the busiest families!

My little girl loves to watch things baking in the oven.  She likes spending time with me in the kitchen and helping.  Or making a mess.  But we sure have fun together.   It is fun to watch this german pancake bake in the oven and get puffy and golden.

As soon as it comes out we all get to top it with our favorite toppings.  I like mine simple with fruit, powdered sugar, and syrup.  But you can go the more traditional German Pancake way of sprinkling with some lemon juice and powdered sugar.

If you haven’t tried this classic breakfast you need to make it.  We absolutely love it at our house and it is so fun and easy to make!  It is sure to be a huge hit with family or guests!

  1. Um yeah, so this looks AMAZING!!!! And I NEED It!!!

  2. oh I would love this!

  3. Can I make this without a cast iron pan ?

  4. Alicia Nuszloch says:

    It looks so delicious ….. yum! how many can you feed with this? Thanks

  5. It says to divide the butter. how much goes in the actual pancake?

  6. I made this for Sunday morning brunch and topped it with cherries and homemade honey. My boyfriend was skeptical since he doesn’t typically like pancakes, but this was so delicious and ridiculously quick to make. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Quick, easy, delicious, and surprisingly, turned out great with first attempt. Forgot to add the melted butter until the mix was in the pan, quickly whisked it in, still turned out great. If it helps… For those using celsius I had the oven on 230 C. The pan I used was 26cm wide. My 2 and 4 year old girls were able to help make it and thought it was very yummy. We put chopped up banana, golden kiwi fruit and maple syrup on when cooked. They were most impressed. 😃 5 Stars (Can’t seem to get the star rating to work.)

  8. I was looking for the breakfast pancake recipe to make it this weekend to surprise my wife and kids and this is the one! Honestly, I’m not good at cooking but this pancake recipe seems easy. I’ll make it tomorrow morning!
    Thank you for sharing!! 🙂

  9. This was easy, elegant and fantastic. We topped ours with defrosted mixed berries and powdered sugar. The juice from the defrosted berries was scrumptious drizzled over the whole thing. My Swedish mother made something similar when I was little, but I hadn’t been able to recreate it. So glad I found this recipe. Will be a regular in our house.
