German Pancakes Recipe

What is a German Pancake

A few months ago Big Bug came home from school talking about German Pancakes. “What the heck are German Pancakes?”, I was thinking. He kept going on and on about how he wanted me to make them because his teacher raved about them. Thanks Mrs. Justice (and I mean that sincerely as I would have never known about this scrumptious treat otherwise).

When I Googled German Pancakes several recipes of coursed popped up along with Wikipedia. I just love Wikipedia. It’s so useful at helping you figure out things that your just “Duh?” about. I found out that German Pancakes have several different names that include:

A Dutch baby pancake, sometimes called a German pancake, a Bismarck, or a Dutch puff, is a sweet popover that is normally served for breakfast.

Sounds yummy, right? Well, when I received a bottle of Blueberry Syrup from The Blueberry Store I just knew what I had to use it on – German Pancakes!

The Blueberry Store Blueberry Syrup Review

BLUEBERRY syrup review

The Blueberry Store Blueberry Syrup 14oz bottle ($5.99) contains some of the most amazing blueberry syrup I’ve ever tasted and you should know this household (especially the kids) love their berries if you have seen my Berry Berry Fruit Crumble or Fruit Pizza recipes. The Blueberry Store Blueberry Syrup tastes so fresh! With each drizzle you can taste and feel the texture of the blueberries that embody it. You feel the seeds, skins, the meat of fresh blueberries with every bite.

This isn’t just blue liquid in a bottle it’s a thick, sweet fresh tasting blueberry syrup. Don’t expect it to drizzle out like maple syrup either – this syrup has body to it so it kind of clumps out pieces of blueberries which I think is why it tastes so fresh.

There’s no questioning just how natural The Blueberry Store Blueberry Syrup is. If you read the ingredients label on the bottle you will actually find a list of ingredients that you can pronounce – blueberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Can’t get more natural than that!

Do you love blueberries? The Blueberry Store is located in South Haven, Michigan and specializes in all things blueberry. To learn more about them please visit them on Twitter and Facebook. It was a great addition to my German Pancakes!

German Pancakes Recipe

I think German Pancakes are divine. They kind of remind me of an eggy, not fried funnel cake. Must be the powdered sugar that does that. They do not have the normal pancake texture. It’s more soufflé like. Yum!

Comments

  1. I love, love, love German pancakes, but it’s been quite awhile since I made one. I had never heard of them until I got a job long ago waiting tables at Elmer’s Restaurant. That’s where I learned all about a variety of dessert-type breakfast entrees. One of the best recipes I found was in Sunset magazine, and then I modified it to cut back on the amount of butter. They really are fun to make because of how much they puff up. I also love crepes, especially mountain berry ones with vanilla ice cream. I’ve never made a crepe, but my husband can.

    • I’ve never made a crepe before. I thought about making those instead of german pancakes. Which do you prefer?

    • I probably eat crepes more often since a German pancake is a heavier (though totally yummy meal). One of my treats when I visit the Farmers Market is to visit the crepe stand. Savory Crepes are just as good as the sweet ones.

    • Yes, crepes do seem much lighter. At least they look lighter to me since I’ve never tried them. A crepe stand sounds yummy. I know there’s a place in our mall that sells yogurt and crepes. I might have to give it a shot before I attempt to make them. Do you ever make them from scratch?

    • The batter is simple to make from scratch, but it’s another matter to get them to be really thin and cook without getting all crumpled up in the pan.

    • I can totally see mine crumpling all weird. I’m good for that. I guess I will just have to try it one day and see what happens.

  2. That looks fantastic! I love blueberries and I know I’d like their syrup. The strawberries add even more color and flavor.
