German pancakes, traditionally derived from the German word, Pfannkuchen, have become a household dish for many. The slightly sweetened puff, that falls shortly after being removed from the oven, is simple to make and can cater to many pallets because it can be topped with nearly any topping of your choice. It was traditionally served with vanilla and cinnamon, however many enjoy fruit, syrups, or whipped topping on their German pancake.
My family always served them with lemon wedges and powdered sugar. Sometimes we’d fill it with leftover apple pie filling and whipped cream. Either way, they were always warm and delicious. It’s hard to go wrong with German pancakes. Try this German pancake recipe for a delectable breakfast to serve during the holidays.
