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!

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!

These pancakes are delicious served spread with a bit of jelly and then rolled up. A real finger food! Totally wunderbar!

Oma says,

I loved adding coarsely chopped peeled apples to this as I was making it for our boys when they were young. That way they not only got lots of protein because of the high content of eggs and milk, but also some extra fibre.
