♥ GERMAN PANCAKE LUV ♥


GERMAN PANCAKES
 
I've posted about these WORLD ROCKIN' pancakes before
 but they are worthy of another round.


It is ONE BIG PANCAKE,
cooked either in a regular, round CAKE pan
or, as I did,
in a cast iron skillet..
It rises...
then falls into
light and delicious ! 
 







I decided this was a great time to use these pretty blue dishes...




Look how pretty the flowers from the super market look...
The little pitcher with the sail boat is from Germany....
perfect to use with these delightful dishes.
 

I
They are thin...almost like a CREPE...
and you can add just ANYthing to them to make a really special treat.
I hear MAPLE SYRUP is a really good choice...
(Mr. Sweet's favorite
I'm thinking
creme cheese and pecans, with a tiny bit of crushed PINEAPPLE..
or CHERRIES and powdered sugar...
*SIGH 
It's just pitiful how it's all about SUGAR with me..
♥ 

Sweet cousins gave us these pretty dishes, napkins, napkin rings
and I love using them.


Since CHERRIES are one of my very favorite fruits,
this is what I added to my pancake.
Sweet, yet tart and,
O SO DELICIOUS
 
I buy the cans of TART CHERRIES (not the pie filling...never the pie filling)
add a tiny bit of sugar, a drop of ALMOND flavoring, a little flour and water...
gently boil for a few minutes...they will thicken a little.

I think the dishes look....DANISH..SWEDISH..
maybe even a little GERMAN..?




Sweet and spicy apples are good, rolled in the pancakes, so I've heard. ♣

HOW TO MAKE A GREAT GERMAN PANCAKE

  1/4 cup butter
 1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
 6 eggs, lightly beaten
 1/8 teaspoon salt

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a medium baking dish.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, milk, eggs and salt.
 Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Bake on center rack in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until golden brown.  This makes 1 large German pancake.
 Add whatever fruit you like and sprinkles of delicious, white, fluffy POWDERED SUGAR.
 ♥ NOTE..I used my large cast iron skillet to bake this and it worked beautifully.



These are so easy to make and so delicious...hope you will give them a try.
Love and kisses

  1. Looks delicious! I haven't had a crepe since going on the gluten free diet, but I think I could easily sub the flour and make this work!

  2. Looks like supper! I am missing a can of shrimp. Go ahead and try to make sense of that! ;>

  3. You know, I've never liked maple syrup. One of the reasons I like IHOP, they always have strawberry and blueberry flavor

  4. I haven't made one of these in a couple years... Sounds like it's about time:@)

  8. Your pancakes look delicious, BJ! I've seen them before, but never had them or tried making them myself. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  9. I have not made/had those pancakes in years, bj. They were/are always so good. I should make some again. MyHero would love them. Thanks for the recipe. I'd do the pecans and cherries on my own. Hubby does NOT like pecans...can you imagine? xo Diana

  10. This is making my mouth water. I don't have a cast iron skillet but I swear one day I will get one. Can I make these in cake pans (in order to get more than one at a time?) Oh..seriously yummy!

  11. I love this type of pancake made into a German apple version.
    Pretty dishes bj - they have the look of bright blue Springtime skies! Those we definitely are enjoying around here this week at long last.

  13. bj, that sound delicious and OH SO easy to make. I must try this recipe. I love the same cherries..I add cornstarch, but I think it's "the same difference"...remember when we used to say that? We took all of our CD's to Goodwill today.. :( boy,, was that hard to do.
    A big old pancake in the morning would be nice..or..breakfast out. :) I'm kidding. That's only on Saturdays'.
    Big hugs!!!

  30. Your blog is awesome! I'm new here and will enjoy following and looking around! We love German pancakes but for some reason, I've never made them. A must try and they will definitely be topped with cherries! Thanks for the recipe!

  32. I am back . . . Safe and sound . . .
    Getting all set to enjoy some of that SWEET bj . . .

  33. Of course, things ware different when you are by yourself. I would not know how to eat at your table, as you go all out to make is so pretty and inviting. Sometimes, pot and pans, paper plates. Now that is my table setting for old folks. Hope you have a nice week.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks, again, bj! I will enjoy the ride and feel free to grab the breakfast button!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh yummy. I have a weird thing about not liking to eat off blue plates. But, could I have mine on maybe a green plate, please?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi BJ,

    Fixed it! Never did find out what went wrong. Anyway, I read it aloud to Johnny and now he's jealous of Mr. Sweet!

    Have a Happy Blue Monday!

    ReplyDelete
  37. BJ, your German pancake is very tempting and I'm sure is very tasty! Like you, I have a nasty sweet tooth, but since I'm really trying to watch the sugar, I'd only have a few fork fulls of this - can't go completely cold turkey, that would be crazy!

    Thanks for sharing!

  43. Hi bj, I LOVE German pancakes and yours looks delicious. We make them and put lemon and powdered sugar on them. However, since cherries are my favorite fruit for pies, I am sure I would love them on German Pancakes. Thank you for the recipe. I usually go to Google. I will definitely try your recipe.

    Happy St. Patrick's Day. I love your header.

    Love, Jeanne
