How to make the german pancake

Making an oven-baked pancake is very easy. Simply throw eggs, milk, flour, salt, and vanilla in your blender until smooth. In the meantime warm the baking pan in the hot oven and melt butter in the baking pan. Pour the pancake batter into the warm baking pan over melted butter and bake in the oven for about 25 minutes. The pancake will puff in a spectacular way and should be golden on the edges.

1. To make the german pancake: Preheat your oven to 425ºF (220ºC). As the oven preheats, put the unsalted butter in a 9×13-inch baking pan and place it in the oven until melted.

2. Place the eggs, milk, flour, salt, and vanilla extract in a blender and pulse until smooth. Pour the batter into the hot baking dish over the melted butter.

3. Bake the german pancake, for 22-27 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and puffy. Sprinkle the German baked pancake generously with powdered sugar, maple syrup, butter, or any other toppings you like. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the baked german pancake recipe

  • You can make the German pancake in any baking dish you like, but we found out that a metallic pan allows for a better sear on the edges. You can also use a large cast iron skillet to make the baked pancake.
  • You can add 2 or 3 tablespoons of dark rum to the pancake batter for a nice flavor.

How to serve the baked pancake

This German pancake does get nice and puffy in the oven, changing form every time. When you remove the pan from the oven the pancake will start to collapse as it cools, just like a souflé. So we recommend serving the German pancake immediately! Use a sharp knife to cut the pancake into squares or rectangles.

German pancake toppings

It’s time to get creative with German pancake toppings! Confectioner’s sugar is always a great choice but you can try berries, fruit slices, whipped cream, maple syrup, Nutella, nuts… Use whatever is in your pantry!

How to keep the baked pancake leftovers?

Keep the baked German pancake leftovers covered in your refrigerator for one day. Reheat gently in the microwave or enjoy at room temperature.
