Cute German Pancakes

Today's recipe is known by quite a few names... German Pancakes, Hootenany, Puffed Oven Pancakes, etc. I grew up calling them German Pancakes, so to me that is their name. In an effort to use some eggs up lately, I made these for breakfast. I decided to try something new though and made them in muffin cups. I really enjoyed how they turned out, they are a mini-version of the original. Many people agree that mini = cute, so these are "Cute German Pancakes".
As my husband put it, "It is a given that cute food tastes better." I must say that I really enjoyed these!

Cute German Pancakes

Measure out 3 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup flour and a dash of salt.
Place 1/8 tsp of butter in each cup of a 12-cup muffin pan and place in a 350 degree oven.
While the butter is melting, beat eggs.Add flour and milk.
Beat until smooth.
Remove muffin pan from oven.
Place 2-3 Tbsp of egg mixture in each cup of the muffin pan.
Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.
Remove from oven and top with desired topping:
Fresh Fruit
Powdered Sugar
Maple Syrup
Or you can have a combination on each plate!


  1. I've never thought to put them in mini-muffin cups, I love that!

  2. These taste just like yorkshire pudding??

    1. My guess is that they have a bit more of an egg taste than Yorkshire pudding as the ratio of egg to milk and flour is greater (although I've never had Yorkshire Pudding so it is just a guess).
