Pancakes from overseas

Howdy folks!…this evening’s post isn’t about sewing; y’all know sometimes I throw a recipe in every now and then….as you all probably know I follow a ton of blogs and they aren’t always sewing related…in doing so, I learn so many things that I may not have ran across had I not….Yesterday was no exception…I was reading a blog called Pretty Providence which is written by two lovely young ladies…the main theme to their blog is living well within a budget….they post all kinds of good stuff….Well one of the ladies was reading one of her favorite blogs and ran across a recipe for GERMAN PANCAKES….Now I know the kitchen and recipes like the back of my hand but I had never heard of “German pancakes” until yesterday…..I wasn’t even going to write another blog post until I sewed something else but since I made the recipe today AND it was so cool I decided to share….
Now the recipe is very simple; super similar to homemade pancakes but with less ingredients….even mixing it up was easy-peasy because I put everything in my blender (as suggested); which made the eggs in the recipe soooo fluffy!….I baked it up and y’all it was good!!!…my guinea pig  Huny liked it too….I was supposed to be trying it for breakfast but I actually forgot about the recipe…I had written it down from the ladies’ blog post yesterday….Around here we eat breakfast for dinner often so this was right on time…I should have made some smothered potatoes with it; Lawd that would have hit the spot…but I didn’t even know if I would like the pancake so I didn’t….Next time I definitely will….its really easy for those with a few kiddos and not a lot of time…the dish whips up so fast and its filling too…it looked so crazy when it was cooking too…the eggs (recipe calls for 6) contributed to the cool shape when it was done….the kiddos would be excited to see and eat something like this….and we were too!…okay let me share the photos of it….try it and tell me what you think….oh and if you need the recipe you can find the lovely Pretty Providence blog or let me know and I’ll give it to you! Talk to you good people soon!

 reminds me of a popover a little bit….

 space aged huh?….but I’m sure its plenty retro….

 its like an inch thick all around….and of course the edges are the best…..

 the underside of the pancake…it looks a little like drop dough but its totally liquid before its baked….awesome sauce; am I right?….

yummmmm….but I NEED potatoes….the plate doesn’t even look right….looks like something’s missing….next time my friends, next time….

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!

  1. Thanks Makizy!…it was soooo good….I so apologize for the late response; I thought that when I reply via email it appears here…apparently not…LOL….come back again soon! :))))


  2. Ohh.. this looks like the same recipe as a Dutch Baby! That also uses a lot of eggs and has a crater-like appearance. Another good topping is powdered sugar and lemon juice 🙂 Yours looks delicious!
