Mini German Pancakes

Have you ever made a pancake and went “Awwww” as you looked at it.  If you haven’t, then you obviously have not made these adorable puffed pancakes.  Sometimes, miniature sized things are just too cute.

Not only are these pancakes adorable, but they are also low maintenance.  They are a perfect addition to your breakfast.  While you cook your eggs, bacon, sausage and other breakfast items, these pancakes take care of themselves as they bake.  Within a half an hour you have adorable, puffy, soft German pancakes.  Make them sweet with syrup and powdered sugar or savory with eggs, chives, and cheese.

Slightly Adapted from Our Best Bites

3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
Nonstick cooking spray
Melted butter, for topping


Put mini muffin pans in oven.  Preheat oven and pans to 400°F.  Let pan sit in preheated oven for 5-10 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk flour, milk, eggs, vanilla extract, and salt together.  Working quickly, spray preheated pans with nonstick spray.  Fill each mini muffin tin about 3/4 the way full.  Bake for 14-17 minutes, until pancakes are puffed and golden brown.  Brush with melted butter.  Serve with powdered sugar, fruit jam, and maple syrup for a sweet pancake, or serve with scrambled eggs, chives, and cheddar cheese for a savory pancake. 

Makes 24 mini pancakes. Serves 2-3.
