German Pancakes

German Pancakes have many different names. Whether you call them Dutch Baby Pancakes, Dutch Puff, Hootenanny or a Bismark it’s pure deliciousness! Only 5 ingredients and one of the easiest breakfast recipes you can make. Super buttery and fluffy with slightly crispy edges.

Breakfast is a love language all on it’s own. My Pecan Bacon is great for breakfast or brunch and even crumbled over a salad. Casseroles are also a great option for easy breakfasts and I’m sure you’ll love this Breakfast Sausage Casserole Recipe. If you like things on the sweet side then you must make my Lemon Blueberry Crepes or my Chocolate Orange Pull Aparts.

I make this for my family every few weeks. It’s usually a weekend treat and everyone loves it. We all top ours differently with syrup, jams, powdered sugar and berries. I’ve heard that even flavored yogurt is great with this, too.

The reason I feel like my recipe is one of the best around it because it’s thicker than any that I’ve had before. I finally figured out how to maintain most of it’s fluffiness. It holds up well once you cut it and isn’t thin to where you feel like you aren’t eating anything.
