German Pancakes A Traditional Family Recipe

This shop, German Pancakes A Traditional Family Recipe, has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CapturingTraditions #CollectiveBias

Here is a tasty recipe that is great for busy school days, leisurely weekends, or special holiday brunches — German Pancakes! Make them a tradition in your family.

 

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.

Shop for Gold’n Soft products

 

You can feel good about serving your family Gold’n Soft. It is made with simple ingredients offering a great buttery taste with no cholesterol or hydrogenated oils, ZERO trans fats per serving, and is easily spreadable. It comes in convenient sizes — 15 ounces (great for smaller households) and 45-ounce packages. This great value gets even better with this 50¢ COUPON.

FIND a Store near you! We picked ours up from the refrigerated Fresh Dairy section at our local Smart & Final.

 

As you can tell, German Pancakes are still one of my all time favorite breakfasts. So much so that we sometimes have them for dinner. Who says pancakes are only for breakfast? LOL You can even fill these pancakes with savory items such as chicken, asparagus, and more. The sky is the limit.
