One of the most requested meals in our house are German pancakes. Every weekend when I ask the kids what they want me to make; they always ask for German pancakes. But not just any German Pancakes. Mini German Pancakes! They absolutely love the perfect personal size! I love how the German Pancakes offer a lot more protein and less sugar than regular pancakes. So, as long as I have enough eggs on hand, I often let them have their way. These Mini German Pancakes have become so popular that I decided it was time to share the magic recipe!

There isn’t much of a trick to making these delicious mini German Pancakes. They are quite easy and very popular among our family and friends. We tend to make them almost every weekend. And would you believe the kids can out eat Mommy when it comes to these? The kids just can’t stop! The last time; I believe both boys (ages 8 and 9) ended up eating 5 of them and Miss Jade ate 4 herself! Not bad for having super picky kids who refuse to eat!
I also love how versatile you can be with these mini German Pancakes! You can top them off with just a spritz of lemon juice and dusting of powdered sugar. Or you can add your favorite syrup. Maple syrup is quite delicious on these. We’ve also tried regular Raspberry Rhubarb Jam, Strawberry Rhubarb Jam, Blueberry jam, Blueberry & Huckleberry Syrup, or with just freshly sliced berries. I’ve also seen these filled with Yogurt and fresh fruit! There are so many amazing ways to enjoy them!
