Bavarian Pancakes

"My grandma's recipe. These come out plate size and thin. You put any choice of toppings on and roll up and eat. This is a German heritage recipe."

Questions & Replies

  1. How much butter in the skillet? It doesn't specify in the instructions.


  1. These turned out amazing and delicious! I filled them with strawberry filling I made from frozen strawberries cooked down with sugar and cornstarch added to make it sweet and thickened; then I topped them with some sour cream mixed with a bit of sugar and vanilla to taste. So much yum going on here!!
  2. I have no clue how to cook and on my first try these came out almost perfect!! delicious easy recipe with no weird ingredients.
  3. This is a keeper! I made these last night for dinner. My bf has never had 'crepes' before and he GOBBLED them up. I also added a splash of vanilla and filled them with homemade raspberry syrup. I can't wait to try these again with different fillings.
  4. I am eating these as I write this review ... and I am moaning ... so good. The only change I made was to sub flax seed oil for vegetable oil. I filled with a small amount of strawberry jam, cool whip and fresh blueberries. Props to your grandma for a great recipe!! Update: I also made these with soy milk instead of reg and just as good, a bit thicker!
  5. Light, airy, DELICIOUS! My family loved them. I’m so proud of myself. I was always afraid to attempt making crepes. I can’t believe how easy it was.


I am a Christian wife and mother of 3 kids. Since my DH's high cholesterol, we've been eating better. I never used to like cooking. Since eating better, I've liked learning and preparing new recipes. My kids haven't reconciled themselves to the new eating yet. I grind my own grain and make all my own breads.?Working 2 hours a day in the local high school lunch room.??I am homeschooling my high schooler.? ?Also found out 1 child has multiple food allergies (wheat, dairy, tomato, chocolate, etc) and another is gluten sensitive. So, we just started (July 09) eating gluten and dairy free. I've been busy with getting our house market ready, even though it's not the best time for that.?
