This German homemade pancakes recipe, aka Pfannkuchen, is so easy to make. It's very traditional for either breakfast, lunch, or a light supper and can even be used as a dessert! If you're looking for a simple pancake recipe, then try my Mutti's recipe!
These pancakes are delicious served spread with a bit of jelly and then rolled up. A real finger food! Totally wunderbar!
Perhaps you're thinking that all German pancakes are the puffy ones shown when you google. If you'd like that type, then check out my German apple pancake. Deliciously wunderbar!
To make this a more substantial meal, why not serve bacon with these German pancakes? I know what you are probably thinking. That's way too messy! BUT, here's an easy and non-messy way to make lots and lots of bacon. Follow the recipe for how to bake bacon and you'll never go back to frying it again.
What's best about baking bacon is that while you're making the pancakes, the bacon is taking care of itself in the oven. Easy and delicious!
