  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Turn your oven on to 450° F. Put the 3 tbsp of butter into a 9"x13" pan and place in the preheating oven.
  • Crack all of your eggs into a medium bowl. Whisk thoroughly. I recommend using an electric hand mixer or even a blender.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until the mixture is slightly bubbly and has no lumps.
  • By now, your butter should be melted. Use hot pads to take the pan out of the oven and swirl the butter so it evenly coats the bottom of the pan.
  • Give your batter one last whisk and pour it into the hot pan. Immediately place it in your oven. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • You'll know your German Pancake is done when the sides have risen and it is crispy and golden brown. It will start to shrink as soon as you remove it from the oven so serve immediately with maple syrup or jam.
