Here is the recipe as found on http://realmomkitchen.com
Mini German Pancakes
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. orange zest (optional)
1/4 cup butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Blend first six ingredients (milk thru orange zest) in a blender. Be careful to see that any flour clumps get well-blended.
- Blend in butter a little at a time in order to temper the eggs.
- Grease muffin tins well and distribute batter evenly between 24 tins. Bake for 15 minutes, or until puffy and golden on top.
I omitted the orange zest since I didn't have an orange. I want to try it next time though as it would be super yummy. I also halfed the recipe as there were only three people eating. Another reason why I love this recipe! Totally easy to scale up or down.
All set to go in the oven!
Right out of the oven they are super puffy and airy.
They do settle a bit as they cool, but they are still light in texture. I topped mine with powdered sugar, but you can top with anything you like! My family loves powdered sugar with lemon. Syrup is good too, and if you have fresh berries is SUPER yummy.
Hope you give these a try! Super easy and much less daunting than making a full size Dutch Baby, and much cuter!
