German Pancake

german-pancake-01With all the eggs we’ve been getting, I have been obsessed with finding new recipes to use them. I remembered my Oma making this giant pancake thing when I was little. It was called a German Pancake.

Turns out, it was the easiest pancake I’ve ever made. Just mix all the ingredients, add them to a baking dish and bake. It poofs up, which the kids (and me too) get a kick out of watching. When it’s finished, you can top it with confectioner’s sugar, your choice of preserves, honey, syrup, really the sky’s the limit. It’s so delicious!


  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 5 Tbs. butter


  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, then add the milk, flour and salt.
  3. Once the oven is preheated, melt the butter in a 9×13 baking dish. When the butter is melted, take baking dish out and swirl butter around, making sure to cover the entire bottom of the dish.
  4. Pour batter into dish. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
    The sides and corners will puff up and look like they will overflow, but it won’t. Once you take it out of the oven, it will calm down and deflate a little.
  5. Top with confectioner’s sugar, preserves, honey or syrup and serve immediately.
