Baked Pancakes

by Emma on November 2, 2011

in Breakfast

These are also sometimes called dutch babies, or german pancakes. I can’t really claim to know the origins, as I learned about these from the internet. BUT every time I see these I think, ‘oh, I should make that sometime.’ I’ve probably thought this over ten times in the last couple of years.

What? You mean you don’t have ‘make those weird pancakes’ on your to-do list? Well….

Since this was the first time I’ve ever made these (or tasted one) I decided to try do a little research and I combined elements of two recipes I found online. And then I tried two slightly different baking methods, one worked well one did not work well. So below you will find a simple but (pretty much) fail proof method for making baked pancakes.

Oh-and if you’re wondering what these taste like (I know I was) the best I can describe it is by saying that it’s very much like a thicker version of a crepe. Which I thought was awesome! Enjoy.

Baked Pancakes, makes 2 large pancakes. Adapted from here and here.

Needed: 4 eggs, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2/3 cup flour, 2/3 cup milk, 2 tablespoons (melted and cooled) butter plus more for the pans, and 1 teaspoon lemon zest.

In a blender combine the eggs and milk and blend for a few seconds until well mixed. Now add all the remaining ingredients and blend until combined and no lumps remain.

Grease two pie pans with butter and place in the oven while it preheats. Preheat oven to 375 F once it’s ready turn it down to 350 F. Remove the pie pans (with an oven mitt) and pour 1/2 the batter into each. Bake for 10 minutes, until the edges start crimping up and browning. Serve with syrup, fruit and powder sugar.

Hello, these “german pancakes” are called EIERKUCHEN in Germany…this means egg-cake and they are very tasty together with cinnamon and apple puree! Enjoy! :-)

They look lovely.

By the way: I just can’t seem to see the pictures belonging to your blog entries in my Google Reader anymore – which I could up to some weeks ago…

These are Dutch pancakes, for real! Kids in Holland love them, and will have them every week. We eat the pancakes with jelly, syrop, nutella or bacon and syrop, cheese etc. You can put anything you like on the pancake! So good!

My mother in law made these in cucpake pans so they’re little and individual — perfect for brunch or a tea party!

I’m obsessed with these! I usually top them with strawberries and powdered sugar or whipped cream and chocolate syrup… It’s fun to be bad.

Bah! We must be channeling one another because I found a vintage recipe book with puffy dutch pancakes and just made them too. I thought they were delicious with honey lemon syrup.

Hey Emma, These are Dutch for sure! Don’t forget to add a bit of cinnamon in the batter…You can also make these with apple and cinnamon…and in small they are called ‘poffertjes’ you need a special ‘poffertjes’ pan to make them…I’ll be happy to send you one if you want to give that a try! and than eat them with butter and powdersugar…yumyum…

I used to make those a kid all the time (there was a recipe in some kid’s cookbook I had), and I recently revisited them with my boyfriend. He loved them too.

Keri November 4, 2011 at 6:39 pm

HA! “Sugar”… not “super”… though they are pretty super after you’ve had them with it. I think that was subconscious slip ; )

they are pennsylvania dutch… or amish. the amish actually descended from germany and the language is deutch or “dutch” : ] thanks for the recipe.

In England these are the only ‘pancake’ variety, after the French ‘crepe’ ;) Guess you could call them a Euro-pancake. As opposed to an ‘American’ pancake which is of the thicker variety… Tasty, tasty!!
