I first learned about German Pancakes from my husband, but, oh, how I wish I had known about them sooner! They are one of my favorite breakfast dishes, hands down!
Speaking of breakfast, I have a little confession, and it is going to make me sound really strange, but I am not much of a breakfast foodie. It’s true. Whew! That feels good to get off my chest.
I know, I am an anomaly. Most people would eat breakfast all day long. However, as I have expanded my culinary skills and explored new recipes, I have found a number of breakfast recipes that I just can’t do without. German Pancakes is one of those dishes.
Pancakes are great, don’t get me wrong. But when I make pancakes I have to wait for the batter to start bubbling, then sit there by the stove as the heat emanates from it, and wait to flip each flapjack. I love that with German Pancakes I can mix the batter, put it in the oven, and walk away until the timer goes off. Which means I can make school lunches, brush my hair, or sit and relax (wait, that last one never happens when kids are awake)!
And even better, I know that my kids are starting their day with some protein. Also, eggs are cheap! Which makes German Pancakes a healthy, quick, and inexpensive dish. Over the last few months, I have been able to get a dozen eggs for under $1 a number of times!
Also, I get to use one of my favorite kitchen tools to make these. I seriously love my Blendtec! Yes, I just admitted that I love a blender. I use it all the time! And it never gives me headaches. It is a beautiful blender. I know, as a woman I shouldn’t say that I love a kitchen appliance. Feminists are aghast right now, but oh well!
Anyway, pull out your blender and make these easy German Pancakes for breakfast. They save you time, and won’t break you grocery budget!
