I cut the recipe in half and it was perfect. I never use syrup, so served with butter, lemon and powdered sugar. Will definitely serve when my family comes for brunch, but will add the buttermilk syrup.

The buttermilk syrup is unique, and caramel like. The tartness of the fresh blueberries offset the sweetness of the syrup. Delicious! I wouldn't change a thing on this recipe.

Great recipe, we added sugar to the batter to make it sweet! We did not make the syrup but rather just used maple syrup or jam.Full recipe review is here: http://www.nickandalonakitchen.com/2018/01/german-pancake-with-apples.html

I love the buttermilk syrup! I'm wondering if there's a typo in the recipe regarding the baking soda.. Is the baking soda really supposed to be in the syrup or the pancake? My pancake turned out kind of eggy, not fluffy.

I just made a German Pancake this AM and it's not at all on the sweet side like yours. A full batch is 6eggs,1cup milk, and 1 cup flour. Mine has sauted veggies and different meats pre cooked. Plus it's totally covered in med-cheddar cheese. If I want sweet I put strawberry freezer jam on top to displace toast and jam. You live in BURLEY AND MY EX LIVES IN HAZELTON WHOM I GOT THE RECIPE FROM.HMMMMMMMMMM! Yours LOOKS wonderful but definitely Not what we like. P.S. mine is in The Super Fuel for the Road a Biker's cookbook.

This comes out of the oven so fluffy and delicious - I usually 1/2 recipe and it's perfect with lemon and powdered sugar or with fresh berries - easy and never fail!!

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!
