I have made this German pancake for years. Same recipe, same syrup recipe. Everyone just loves it and it is easy to put together. If there is any syrup left over it is delicious warmed over ice cream.

This recipe is a real family favorite, and can be downsized in a smaller pan for a smaller family. The toppings, of course, can be varied by what's in season, but a syrup, a fruit, and a dusting of powdered sugar is the idea.

Made this for new years. It was very easy, and very delicious. We didnt make the buttermilk syrup, instead we used butter, lemon and powdered sugar. We also enjoyed a bit of cranberrycranberry orange jam on it.

So good and SO easy! We used real maple syrup instead of the buttermilk one given.

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.

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.
