German Pancake Topped with Cinnamon and Sugar
I woke up in a great mood after seeing such a fantastic concert so I decided to spoil my kids and make them a German pancake topped with cinnamon and sugar. Instead of topping it with lemon and raspberries. My kids literally ate this entire pancake (except for the one piece I gave to my husband) in less than 7 minutes. I kept telling them to please slow down but they said it was too good to eat slowly… I guess it was a hit!
How to Make a German Pancake Topped with Cinnamon and Sugar
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, milk, beaten eggs, and grated nutmeg. Beat lightly, making sure to leave the batter a little bit lumpy. Melt the butter in an OVEN PROOF skillet over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, pour the batter into the skillet and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the pancake is golden brown.
Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon until mixed thoroughly.
Remove the pancake from the oven when it’s finished cooking; sprinkle the top with cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Slice the German pancake and serve immediately. Enjoy.

I LOVE Greg Laswell, I’m so jealous you got to see him!!
The German pancake looks delicious too- yum!
What nice look this pankeque! Pam yum!
I love German Pancakes…looks mighty tasty!
What a fun date night! And this german pancake looks absolutely heavenly, especially with that cinnamon sugar topping! I’m such a sucker for cinnamon-sugar 🙂
I am going to check out Greg Laswell right after I leave this comment… My kids would absolutely love that pancake – must make!! Thank you so much for sharing. 🙂
Hi there. Any idea how to tell if a skillet is oven proof? I have a cast iron skillet that would be oven proof, but I’m guessing that wouldn’t work well for this recipe. Thanks!
You can check online to see if your brand of pans are oven proof. Make sure the handles of your pan are metal so they won’t be damaged by the oven. I hope this helps.
I definitely need to make this. It looks delicious!!!
This must be very delicious for your kids to devour it so fast. I excited to try it.
Glad you had a great time! Recipe sounds yummy!
Both of those things, Greg Laswell and the pancake, look delicious!
My kids (and I!) adore German pancakes. They have been known to eat an absurd amount as well. I typically make a triple batch and there is very little left over after a meal!
That sounds like an awesome date night! The pancake looks delicious, Pam!
Great looking pancake – almost crepe like!
Lucky kids! This pancake sounds amazing and just like what I’d want to wake up to!
I really like Greg Laswell.. so cool that you got to see him…. And the pancakes? Oh my… they look wonderful!! I think I know what I’ll be making this weekend!
Yum, looks so delicious!
I just made my 16 year old son a German pancake last night – I sauteed two peeled, sliced apples in a 4 tablespoons of butter, with a little brown sugar tossed in for good measure. I stirred together the rest of the ingredients you have listed, but I use 3 eggs. I then popped the skillet into a 500 degree oven for 7 minutes. I got a big “awesome” from my son when he saw his supper!
I have to make this for my husband ;-). He is a fan of all sorts of pancakes!
i’m enjoying the mound of cinnamon sugar on your lovely pancake, pam! glad you got to rock out a little bit. 🙂
I think small venue concerts like that are infinitely better than sold out stadium concerts. I’m glad y’all had such a great time. That is one big pancake! Holy smokes.
um.. i dont get it, should i bake it BEFORE mixing the brown sugar and cinnamon?
or i just mix it in the batter and THEN i bake it?
Per the instructions:
Remove the pancake from the oven when it’s finished cooking; sprinkle the top with cinnamon and sugar mixture. Slice and serve immediately.
