My Mother making our family German Pancakes growing up is one of my endearing memories of childhood. We didn’t get them often, but it was so exciting when we did. They are a great meal to make for a “breakfast for dinner” meal or a lovely holiday brunch. I had two reasons that I wanted to make them for my family. We have chickens which means we have a plethora of eggs. German Pancakes uses a half dozen eggs so that helps use our excess up. Also because of the eggs, it’s protein rich, and low carb friendly. A serving only has about 16 carbs. With a great calorie free syrup, I can eat it without feeling like I’m cheating!
German Pancakes can be topped with Powder sugar, Maple Syrup, Honey, Jam, or even fresh fruit. You will want to use a 9 by 13 metal pan if possible. You will also need a hand mixer. If you are wanting to half the recipe you can bake this in a metal pie tin instead.
