German Pancakes or Dutch Baby

Monday, December 31, 2018
German Pancakes, Dutch Baby Pancakes, or Puff Pancake recipe has been a long time favorite for breakfast or brunch! It's delicious plain dusted with powdered sugar or with fresh fruit from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

German Pancakes, Dutch Baby Pancakes or Puff Pancakes as they are frequently known in our house are simply delicious no matter what you call them.

They are relatively easy to make and have an interesting texture. They don't have a leavening agent like traditional pancakes and the texture is definitely different. It's much more similar to a hybrid of a sweet popover and a little thicker then a crepe on the bottom.

Dutch Baby Pancakes are super easy to make. They are usually reserved for the weekends around our house, but my Granny had whipped one up each morning before school for a whole year. They do require about 20-25 minutes in the oven which is the hardest part. We easily could eat these every day of the week and never tire of them.

They can be made in a cast iron skillet but we also use pie plates regularly when we are making multiples. I can usually fit 2 German Pancakes in the oven at a time with pie plates.

We like to dust our German Pancakes with a little powdered sugar and fill with a little fresh fruit. However you serve them and whatever you call them they will quickly become a breakfast favorite in your house too!


German Pancakes whisk eggs, and add flour. Mix until combined from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

To make German Pancakes preheat oven to 400 degrees and place 9-10" skillet or pie pan into oven to heat up.

Break 3 whole Eggs, and scramble.

Stir in  1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour and a pinch of Salt, until combined.

Slowly stir in 1/2 cup Milk, and 1 teaspoon Vanilla, until combined.

Add German Pancake Batter to hot melted butter in pan.

Add powdered sugar, fresh berries, or sautéed apples, and enjoy.

  16. Wow, take out the vanilla and powdered sugar and this is a yorkshire pudding, to eat with roast beef! Add some salt and pepper to the mix and it's perfect. It's just the best thing for soaking up the gravy.

    1. Hmm.. The closest thing to these are popovers in taste and texture. They are thicker then crepes and really don't resemble the taste or texture of pancakes at all..
      Thanks for the wonderful comment!

  22. Thanks for this yummy Puff Pancake. It looks like Yorkshire Puddings that Kenneth Goh gave us the recipe in his blog. I will make it and top with stew pear with cinnamon and sugar. Can't wait to try it your way as he baked them in muffins tin.
