German Pancakes & Syrup

This German pancake recipe comes from one of my best friends I grew up with dancing at Children's Dance Theater at the U of U. It's a great way to use up some eggs and it's high in protein.

1 cup milk
6 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
1 stick of butter

1 stick of butter
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

In a blender, blend well the milk, eggs, salt and flour. Melt 1 stick of butter in 9"x13" pan. Pour in mixture and bake for 20 minutes at 400. For syrup, boil the buttermilk, 1 stick butter and sugar. Add 2 teaspoons vanilla. Just before serving, while sauce is hot, add the baking soda.


  1. I've had lots of German pancakes, but this has always been one of my favorite recipes... and I don't even like eggs! Thanks for posting it!

  2. I'm not a huge egg fan either, but I love these. If I don't make the syrup, I will add about 1/4 C sugar (or a little less) to sweeten it up, but I love things really sweet.

  3. For an interesting variation use powdered sugar in place of flour in the German pancake mix. Just kidding Annie!

  4. Oh Mother... you need to label things better! and remember, multiple people have done that!

  5. I LOVE these! Great recipe and great pix Marijke!

  6. Ha ha, did you really do the same Annalisa? What did you make with powdered sugar?
