Reviews for German Pancake
"I make a Finnish Pannukakka that is practically identical to this recipe . I live in an area with a heavy Finnish population and there are almost as many recipes for their Finnish "pancake" as there are Finnish families. The tradition, at least here in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, is to serve it with fruit sauce (often raspberry) and/or fresh blueberries when they're in season. Whatever it's called, it's delicious!"
"This is the German Pancake recipe that I have used for years with powdered sugar and lemon. I made it with the syrup which is nothing but liquid caramel (candy on a pancake) and it is really good, but not at all nutritious. The syrup will only be made as a special fancy treat or as a dessert."
"Delicious! Buttermilk syrup compliments the pancake nicely! Thank you!"
"A wonderful fast and easy recipe to have on hand! I make this for breakfast or supper for my family and it's always a hit!"
"I like the recipe, but I also add baking powder and when it's ready serve with ice cream and smoothie"
"This recipe is so easy and good that my 5 year old son loves to help and eat these pancakes. Sometimes they are requested for dinner."
"Batter turned out great, but I would add a touch of sugar to the batter. I did have success using a 9 inch round metal pan, only filling it 1/4 inch deep, baking at 425 degrees for 8 mins. Perfect color, texture and individual size. Edges curled nicely and lifted out of pan easily when lightly coated with melted butter.I tried the muffin pan idea for mini german pancakes and filled each cup 1/3 full, but pancake was still too thick.I did not try the syrup because I like just butter, powdered sugar and fresh squeezed lemon on my pancake."
"This was a fantastic, easy recipe that we will make again and again! The syrup truly is fabulous, the reviews didn't exaggerate! I tested this recipe with my family, but I plan to make for guests as an impressive dish."
"The pancake it very good, but it is the syrup recipe I keep going back to. This is the only syrup I make for any pancake and best of all for my stuffed French toast casserole!!"
