Foodie Fave: German Pancakes

If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you know that I’ve tried making a German pancake that unfortunately turned out like a gigantic, burnt popover. #fail But that didn’t stop me from trying again! I used The Kitchen Paper’s fail-proof recipe and finally, FINALLY did it right. And just in time for outside spring brunching. Bring on the skillets and mimosas…

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

Toppings of your choice:

  • Syrup
  • Powdered sugar
  • Berries

Preheat the oven to 450 F. Place a pie dish, or cast iron skillet, in the oven to heat. By hand, or in the blender, combine the eggs, vanilla, salt, and milk. Blend for a few seconds, until smooth. Add the flour, and mix only until incorporated. 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. Return the pan to the oven, and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until puffed and golden.

Serve with syrup, powdered sugar and lemon, sour cream and brown sugar, or whatever else suits your fancy!
