GERMAN PANCAKES! The easiest thing you'll ever make🌴
Is there a perfect meal....hard to say. I've watched a lot of cooking and baking shows...namely and foremost, The Great British Baking Show, and from these shows I have learned that there are two types of "great" meals. 1. The type that takes skill, and 2. The type that doesn't. German pancakes are 100% the type that doesn't. But, take it out of the oven, sprinkle on some powdered sugar and serve with berry syrup from Costco and you will have a literal masterpiece that people will gawk at. It's true, the reason I am making this blog post is because I made German pancakes once on our family vlog, The Dashleys and people have not stopped asking me for the recipe. So, without further delay....the much coveted recipe!
1 cup flour (you can try wheat flour...but weird things happen)
1 cup milk (my sister says whole milk makes it better)
1 tsp salt
3 Tablespoons butter (according to my mom it doesn't matter if it's salted or unsalted...she would know)
An oven that works :)
Ok, step 1- Beat the eggs a lot! You can stop after they turn bright yellow (lemon colored) and all the different egg parts have become one.
Step 2a-Add the flour, milk and salt..mix it all really well. If I had a kitchen aid I would do this in a kitchen aid mixer with the beater attachments. If you don't (like me) just use a whisk and whisk your heart out. I always make sure to switch arms half way through so my muscles don't get uneven...(I really do).
Step 2b- Ok, whilst your whisking your egg and flour and other stuff mixture, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. While the oven is preheating I will cut up my 3 Tablespoons of butter and put them in the 9x13 pan. Put the pan in the oven (while it's preheating) and melt the butter. Keep an eye on it, butter will burn.
Step 3- When the butter is all melted and the mixture is all mixed, pour mixture in the 9x13 pan (right on top of the butter...you can tilt the pan around first to spread out the butter if you want)
Step 4- Bake at 450 for 15-20 minutes. It's usually closer to 20 for me, sometimes a little longer, but I like it crispy.
****Ok, do not be alarmed if it gets super huge in the oven. It's supposed to. And then, do not be alarmed again, when your beautiful souffle "wilts." If you're posting a pic of your meal to insta, make sure to take the picture fast, because it will "fall."
At my house, I like to eat it with Costco's berry syrup. My sister sprinkles it with lemon juice and powdered sugar and serves it with fresh fruit, and Dallin likes to go the peanut butter and maple syrup route. Follow your heart and ENJOY!
