To start off our family favorites series, I am sharing with you the number one most requested meal in our family, the German pancake. When I ask my children what they would like for breakfast at least 4 out of 7 days they request this meal.
A few years ago I made a German pancake with high hopes of my children loving it but they did not. I think more than anything it may have been a textural thing because I had a few picky eaters at the time.
Well, last year we bought chickens and when they matured and started laying we had so many eggs that I started looking recipes that used a lot of eggs. I decided to try making a German pancake again and I was not prepared for how much of a hit it would be in our house. Now when I make a German Pancake it is usually gone before I even get to have a piece.
My children’s favorite way of having their German pancake is with fresh fruit and powdered sugar.
The fantastic thing about this recipe is that it can be put together in a matter of minutes, popped in the oven, and then you can get ready for your day while it bakes.
This German pancake looks fantastic and tastes fantastic too. If you are looking for a way to change up your breakfast routine or looking for something special, give this recipe a try. I am sure it will become a favorite in your home too!
