Puff Pankcakes

Here's my suggestion for a quick and easy meal:

Sometimes people call these German Pancakes, but since I wasn't served them once the entire 11 years I lived there,  I call them Puff-Pancakes.  

4 eggs
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2 Tb butter

Preheat oven to 450.  Place butter in 13x9 pan and place into oven until melted (watch closely so it doesn't burn).  Beat remaining ingredients together and pour on top of melted butter.  Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake another 5-10 minutes until it looks like this: 

We are pigs so I double the recipe

I like them best sprinkled with powdered sugar or topped with strawberries and whipped cream, but you can serve them with your favorite pancake toppings


  1. So good. I grew up calling them "Dutch Babies." I enjoy that you can make a whole family's worth while making lunches, brushing hair, the morning before school. No flipping or pouring required.

    1. I think they might be either Dutch or even Swedish-I just don't think they are German. The no flipping is the best part:)

  2. This looks so easy and GOOD! I love sharing recipes at the Shady Porch and would like to invite to share yours at the Rock ‘N Share party too! Blessings, D

  3. Those look so delicious! I'm going to have to try them. I've heard of them, but never had them, thanks for the recipe :)

  4. These kind of look like fluffy elephant ears
