Eierkuchen – German Pancakes Recipe

Eierkuchen is usually served as a midday meal in Germany, with applesauce spread on. It is a sweet dish, and is somewhat comparable to crepes – in shape, that is. This is usually a big hit with kids, and fairly easy to make.

Difficulty: very simple.
Preparation Time: 10 min.
Portions: 3.



(While you can hand mix the ingredients, I recommend putting everything in a blender. If the ingredients are not mixed properly, the taste ends up a bit flat, and the texture is off.)

Eierkuchen can also be frozen for later use. The recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. Original recipe makes 5-6 pancakes, which are generally 3 servings.
