German Pancake ~ What Did You Bake Today?

3 eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted + a little to coat the pan
1 teaspoon vanilla
Juice of 1 lemon
Powdered Sugar

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Coat the inside of an ovenproof 12 inch skillet with butter or PURE. Be sure to remember to edges and sides.
  • In a mixing bowl beat the eggs until well blended.
  • Add the milk and blend again.
  • Sift together the flour and salt and gradually fold into the egg mixture.
  • Add the melted butter and vanilla, blend until smooth.
  • Pour batter into the buttered skillet.
  • Bake 15 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to 350 minutes and bake another 10 minutes until pancake has billowed high and turned golden brown.
  • Sprinkle with lemon juice and powdered sugar. You can also use regular maple syrup or molasses or I especially like it with Blackberry Pineapple Dipping Sauce or Lemon Sauce.
  • Serve immediately.



Yummy! I love anything pancake!! This recipe would be much easier than making individual pancakes and it looks wonderful! I’ll have to try this for breakfast tomorrow! Thanks for sharing Tamy! 🙂


My husband is 100% German & he keeps talking about the German pancakes that his grandma made him.

I’m going to make him some of these for dinner tomorrow!


I was just thinking of tracking down this recipe, thank you so much. Thank you also for your input for the Motivation Station and The Krazy Kitchen which I love!!
