I remember my dad making these for us when we were little kids, and one morning I just had a hankering for some of these yummy fluffy things. My kids really enjoy these and they are really fun to make on a Saturday or Sunday when you have a little extra time to make breakfast.  Make sure you make our yummy Cinnamon Buttermilk Syrup to put on the top!
German Pancakes
9 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
1 1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. melted butter
Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pour melted butter into a 9×13 pan.
Blend eggs, milk, and flour together until smooth and pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
Serve with fresh fruit on top, or our Cinnamon Buttermilk Syrup!

Cinnamon Buttermilk Syrup
2 c. white sugar
1 c. buttermilk 
3/4 c. butter
3 T. corn syrup
1 T. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. vanilla
Directions: Melt butter in a medium to large sauce pan, (the syrup bubbles when you add the baking soda so make sure you have room for that.)
Add the sugar, buttermilk, corn syrup, and baking soda. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring continuously. Cook syrup for 5 minutes after it starts to boil.
Add cinnamon and vanilla. Serve over the top of your favorite breakfast pancakes!

* Here’s a little tip for you! If you don’t have any buttermilk in the house, you can use any type of milk and add a little vinegar to it to replace the buttermilk!

  1. Visiting from the SITS girls ShareFest- this looks great, and very similar to something we order out at a local breakfast place. I think we will try this at home tomorrow for breakfast and see if its close to our restaurant fave. Thank you for the recipe!
