Puffy Oven Pancakes (aka German Pancakes)

Sharing is caring!


Puffy Oven Pancakes were one of my FAVORITE breakfasts growing up!  I have always known them as Puffy Oven Pancakes, but apparently they are better known as German Pancakes or Hootananny’s.  I make these probably 3 to 4 times a month for my family and they are one of the most requested breakfasts from my boys!  They are seriously yummy!

If you have a larger family, you’ll for sure want to make a couple pans. We have a convection oven and I have made several pans at a time fine!  My family of 4 finishes off the entire 9×13 pan!  My boys are big breakfast eaters though!

Here’s how you make them:

Melt 4T of butter in the bottom of a glass 9×13 pan.

Beat together well:
6 eggs
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
dash of salt
optional: vanilla and sugar

Pour in pan and bake at 400 for approx 16-20 minutes. Serve immediately while puffy with butter, syrup and/or powdered sugar!

Here they are right before putting them in the oven!  The yellow around the edges is the melted butter!
Here they are out of the oven!  Sometimes the middle puffs a little bit more then this,
but it tastes yummy no matter how much they puff!
With syrup and a little powdered sugar – yummy!
My boys chowing them down!
ENJOY!  I know your family will love them!

    We make these a lot, but my kids call them Lemon Pancakes (instead of the name of my recipe – Dutch Babies). This is because right out of the oven, we pour fresh squeezed lemon juice over top and then top with powdered sugar. So awesome that way!

  • Awe.Some! And so much easier than regular pancakes: you can just pour it in one pan and walk away til it’s done. Love not standing over the griddle for half an hour! My daughter likes hers with apples & cinnamon – the boy’s favorite is chocolate chips & powdered sugar. Not super healthy – but at least I used organic ingredients and whole wheat flour! Thanks!

  • Oh this is one of my favorite “treats”!! Haven’t had it in forever– probably because I end up eating the whole pan. 🙂
