German Pancakes Recipe

Capturing a Family Tradition

 

When I was a kid, it was always a great morning when you woke up and smelled German Pancakes cooking. Mmm, I’m getting hungry already.  Why is that? Because we are making German Pancakes today. This recipe is easy, versatile, and delicious! That is why it has been a family tradition for generations.

German Pancakes are a crepe-like pancake, they are large and thin. You brush them with Gold’n Soft spreadable butter and add cinnamon and sugar, or jellies, jams, fresh fruit, or whatever you like. Roll the pancake, sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired and serve. They are perfect for a family with differing tastes because you make them individually. Have all one flavor (like me, cinnamon and sugar – yum!), or mix it up.

These pancakes are quick and easy, so they are a perfect choice for fueling the kids up before school, a leisurely weekend breakfast, or a holiday brunch.

 

German Pancakes Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/4 Cup – Milk
  • 4 – Eggs
  • 1 Cup – Flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • Gold’n Soft Spreadable Butter
  • Fillings of Choice: Cinnamon and Sugar; Jams; Jellies, Fruit, etc.
  • Powdered Sugar (Optional)
  • Syrup (optional)

Directions:

  1. Crack open the Eggs into a bowl.
  2. Add Milk to eggs, beat well.
  3. Mix Flour and Salt in a separate bowl.
  4. Stir flour and salt mixture into the milk and eggs gradually, until smooth.
  5. The batter will be thin.
  6. Heat a heavy 8-inch to 10-inch skillet and grease lightly with butter or oil.
  7. Pour only enough batter to make a very thin pancake. Tip the skillet from side to side and around to help spread the pancake batter as needed.
  8. Cook on one side (without flipping) until the pancake begins to blister or bubble. Flip the pancake and cook the other side until a light golden color. Do not over cook. You do not want them to get hard or crispy. NOTE: Pancakes cook very quickly, pay attention.
  9. Remove from skillet and place on a board.
  10. Once you have several pancakes stacked on the board, you can begin filling one at a time.
  11. Brush one side only with Gold’n Soft butter.
  12. Add about 1 to 2 Tablespoon(s) of your desired filling: Cinnamon and Sugar; Jam; Jelly; Fruit; etc. to the buttered side.
  13. Roll pancake from one edge all the way across to the other side.
  14. Place rolled pancake (or two) on a plate and dust with Powdered Sugar.

NOTE: If you have two cooks, one can be cooking the pancakes while the other fills and rolls them. Kids love to help with these pancakes.

 

You can see above how I butter a pancake and sprinkled it with cinnamon and sugar before rolling it — that’s my favorite! Below is a slideshow of how to roll a German pancake with fresh fruit.

Fried Tuna Pancakes With Potato Recipe

Serve your family something delicious and nutritious with Fried Tuna Pancakes for any meal. A quick and easy recipe that will tempt your taste buds.

Fried Tuna Pancakes with Potato

Delicious and nutritious for any meal

 

How to Make Fried Tuna Pancakes with Potato, Onion, and Garlic

Looking for a different way to use tuna? Try this tuna pancakes recipe that you will surely love.

Canned tuna is a favorite of many people around the world. When I was in college, I remember regularly buying canned tuna because it has many uses. It can serve as a snack, a standalone dish, and as a sandwich spread.

Do you want a tuna dish that’s different? Then check out this fried tuna pancakes recipe. It is a nutritious dish that you can prepare and cook in less than an hour. And it’s so delicious that your kids will love it, too.

Is canned tuna safe to consume?

Before we get into the recipe, I would like to focus first on canned tuna. Is it safe to consume? Or should you just opt for fresh tuna?

I mentioned this because there are some people who believe that canned tuna contains mercury which can harm the nervous system and other parts of the body. Mercury occurs in the environment particularly the oceans, and fishes like tuna can absorb it.

The good news is that canned tuna is very healthy and safe to consume because it doesn’t have mercury. And according to dietitians, fresh tuna steak is more likely to have mercury than canned tuna as the latter is made with younger fish.

Experts also agree that consuming a can of tuna every week is alright, even if you are pregnant.

What are the health benefits of canned tuna?

Canned tuna is also packed with many nutrients that can do a lot of wonders to your body. It contains omega-3 fatty acids that promote good brain function. This is an essential fatty acid that has also been shown effective in reducing inflammation in the body as well as lower risks of heart disease and cancer.

Canned tuna also has high levels of niacin, a B-vitamin that helps keep the digestive system healthy. Niacin can also keep the skin glowing and our nerves well-functioning. In fact, a three-ounce serving of canned tuna has about 11 milligrams of niacin.

Another good seafood source of niacin is canned oysters.

Finally, canned tuna has a good amount of vitamin B 12 that supports normal brain function and aids in red blood cell production.

How to buy canned tuna

While canned tuna is safe and healthy to eat, this doesn’t mean that you should just get and buy any canned tuna you see on the grocery shelves.

There are plenty of tuna species, but the best one is skipjack or light tuna. Fortunately for all of us, this is also the most commonly found in tuna cans on grocery store shelves. There’s just one problem with this tuna—it has a light gray color that is slightly unappealing to most people. But if you could not care less about the color, then I suggest you go for a canned tuna using this tuna type.

I also recommend that you shop for those canned tuna products caught by troll or pole-and-line. This is considered as the most environment-friendly and sustainable option. As such, canned tuna with labels such as “school caught” are the ones you should be getting.

You should also think twice about getting flavored tunas since these have excessive amounts of sugar and salt.

 

Fried Tuna Pancakes with Potato, Onion, and Garlic Recipe

This recipe takes about 20 minutes of preparation and 30 minutes of cooking time. It yields four servings.

Ingredients:

  • One large potato, peeled and cubed
  • Four cans of tuna, drained
  • One egg
  • 1/4 cup of chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon of dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Step by step guide:

  1. Place the cubed potato in a small pot. Add salted water and cover it. Bring this to a boil before reducing the heat to medium low. Simmer until tender, or for around 20 minutes.
  2. Drain and let the steam dry for 1-2 minutes. Mash the potato using a fork in a bowl.
  3. Combine the tuna, onion, egg, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, bread crumbs cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper into the potato.

Tip 1: If there is no Dijon mustard in your pantry, you can totally use these mustard substitutes like wasabi, honey mustard, etc.

  1. Divide this into eight equal portions. Shape them into patties.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet placed over medium heat. Fry the patties for about 3 minutes per side, or until they turn brown and crispy.

Tip 2: Pour enough olive oil to coat the skillet so that the patties won’t easily break apart.

Breakfast Recipes Packed With Protein, Coconut, And Blueberries

Vegan recipes that provide the protein and flavor you want first thing in the morning. Have a Coconut Smoothie or Blueberry Pancakes for breakfast or snack.

 

Breakfast Recipes

Packed with Protein, Coconut, and Blueberries

In today’s fast food-oriented culture, it is vital more than ever, to seek out healthy and nutritious alternatives for one’s diet. Vegan selections provide such an option. This certainly includes breakfast, which is often considered by experts to be the most important meal of the day. Indeed, with a full day of activities in store, you want to have the nutritional energy to start your day off successfully.

This typically entails meal offerings high in protein and low in starchy carbohydrates. In addition, you are probably going to desire a morning meal that does not take up too much of your valuable time preparing. With this in mind, here are the vegan breakfast recipes that are exactly what the doctor ordered – delicious, nutritious and easy to whip up.

Creamy Coconut Flavored Protein Smoothie

This is an easily prepared breakfast option that seems more like a delectable treat, rather than the nutritious repast that it actually is. Not only will you find this healthy morning shake with a crushed ice right from your home cooler to be a delicious offering, but also fulfilling, due in part, to the respectable portions of protein (21 grams) and fiber (7 grams) that each serving contains.

Here’s what you will need to get started:

  • 1 scoop cup of protein powder (vanilla)
  • 1 fresh banana (frozen)
  • ¾ cup of coconut milk (non-sweetened)
  • 1 ½ tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut flakes (non-sweetened)
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut cream (this is optional)
  • ½ cup of crushed ice

Once you have all of your ingredients assembled and ready to go, the next couple of steps quick and easy. First, take all of your ingredients, except the coconut cream, and place in a blender. Blend your ingredients until they attain a creamy consistency.

Next, pour the contents from the blender into a large cup or glass. Separately, mix your coconut cream in a small bowl until contents become fluffy. Finally, pour the coconut cream on top of your smoothie. Your morning protein smoothie is now ready to serve.

Protein Rich Blueberry Pancakes

No breakfast is complete without the presence of a few fluffy, golden brown pancakes. This high-protein vegan offering has the right balance of tradition, nutrition, and preparation ease to make it a first-choice culinary favorite for the entire family. In fact, with only 15 minutes required to prepare this meal, this pancake recipe is particularly inviting to early risers on the move.

You will need the following ingredients to get started:

  • ½ scoop cup of your favorite protein powder (vanilla works best)
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup of oat flour
  • ¾ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup of almond milk (non-sweetened)
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut milk yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • ¼ cup of egg whites
  • 1 fresh, large egg
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • ¼ cup of apple sauce (non-sweetened)
  • 1/3 cup of blueberries (fresh)
  • ¼ cup of maple syrup

With your ingredients on hand, it is time to prepare your batter. Begin by placing all of your dry ingredients (i.e. oat and coconut flour, baking powder, etc.) into a properly sized mixing bowl. Stir until contents are thoroughly combined. Once this is complete, add your wet ingredients, plus your eggs, to the dry contents in the mixing bowl. Stir until the contents are evenly mixed. Now it is time to add in your blueberries (or other berry options if you so desire).

Stir to combine all your ingredients. Let your mixed batter sit for about 5 minutes. While you are waiting for a batter, you can begin prepping your cooking pan by preheating and adding cooking spray (preferably non-stick). You are now ready to begin cooking. Pour ¼ to 1/3 cup of batter per pancake into your cooking pan. Cook each side of your pancakes for approximately 3 minutes or until the coloring becomes brownish gold. Now you are ready to serve and enjoy.

Cracklin’ Oat Bran Vanilla Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, Kellogg’s. All opinions are mine alone. #ReimagineCereal #CollectiveBias

 

Remember all those mornings when you were a kid and eating cereals for breakfast? It was great sitting down to your favorite bowl, but sometimes you wished the cereal was something a little bit more. Today, we are going to re-imagine cereal with my new recipe for Cracklin’ Oat Bran Vanilla Buttermilk Pancakes. You are going to love this breakfast dish, and your family will too.

 

Cracklin’ Oat Bran Vanilla Buttermilk Pancakes

A perfect recipe for an everyday breakfast or special brunch.

 

So, let’s go ahead and add a little crunch to your pancakes with great flavors for a satisfying start to the day. Kellog’s Cracklin’ Oat Bran Cereal is a great add-in for pancakes. The cereal is hearty enough to not get soggy in the pancake batter, and it provides additional fiber, whole grain, and protein. Surprise yourself and your senses.

Pancakes are quick and easy to make, but I have a little secret to make them even tastier. Plus, there is even a fun part to this recipe that your kids will love to help you with.

 

Cracklin’ Oat Bran Vanilla Buttermilk Pancakes

Here’s What You Need:

Buttermilk Pancake Mix, Egg, Water, Pure Vanilla Extract (my secret ingredient to delicious pancakes), Kellogg’s Cracklin’ Oat Bran Cereal.

NOTE: You can always use your homemade pancake mix / batter.

Optional Items:

Fresh Fruit (Peaches, Raspberries, Strawberries), Vanilla Greek Yogurt, Maple Syrup, Honey, or whatever toppings you like.

 

Let’s Make Pancakes!

We are going to start by getting our fruit prepared for topping the pancakes when they are hot off the griddle. I had fresh peaches, raspberries, and strawberries to work with, yum! There was a buy-one-get-one sale on boxed fruits at Albertsons that I could not resist. I got my fruit washed up, then sliced the strawberries and peaches.

 

I picked up my Cracklin’ Oat Bran at Albertsons too.

 

Then, you need to get your Cracklin’ Oat Bran ready for the pancake batter (this is where the kids come in). Place the cereal in a sandwich sized zippered baggy, fold it over to get the air out, and seal the bag. Then, let your kids gently hammer the cereal with the side of a wooden mallet / tenderizer. You want the cereal to be broken up into smaller pieces, but not pulverized. Set the baggy of crunchy cereal bits aside.

Light the fire under your griddle. You want it to be hot when your batter is ready.

 

Get your buttermilk pancake mix out, and follow the directions to make your batter. Add a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. Once batter is mixed, add in about half of your Cracklin’ Oat Bran bits — you want to save some for garnishing your pancakes. Mix until blended.

Check your griddle to see if it is hot enough by spritzing a little water on the hot surface. The water should bubble, spit, and steam.

Scoop your pancake batter onto the griddle and get cookin’.

 

Topping the Pancakes:

I made two different types of toppers for our pancakes. They were both scrumptious and beautiful. Both plates are garnished with the additional Cracklin’ Oat Bran bits.

Peach and Raspberry with Vanilla Greek Yogurt and Honey

 

Strawberries with Maple Syrup

Now, this is an easy breakfast that you would be proud to serve to your family, friends, or even for holiday and special occasion entertaining. The Cracklin’ Oat Bran adds a little cinnamon flavor to the pancake along with the unexpected crunch — a great way to re-imagine cereal.
