Gramma's German Pancakes With Honey Butter

Recipe by Debber
READY IN: 50mins




  • Preheat oven to 375°F; put oven rack in middle position.
  • While oven is heating up, divide butter in half (1/4 cup each). Melt one of the halves. The other half, divide again, and place pieces in two large cast-iron or stone-ware frying pans. Place pans in oven while it preheats.
  • In a blender, mix melted butter, eggs, sugar, flour and milk.
  • Remove pans from oven, swirl butter around slightly up the side of the pans.
  • Pour half of the flour-milk mixture into the first pan, the remainder in the second pan.
  • Quickly return pans to the oven. Bake until fluffy, golden brown and crispy, about 45 minutes. The puffiness goes down as it cools. Serve immediately with Honey Butter (follows).
  • PREPARE HONEY BUTTER: While the pancakes are baking, rinse out blender; pour in warmed honey and start blender on medium-high.
  • Slowly drizzle in half of the 1/2 cup melted butter; mix for 10 seconds, then add remaining butter. Mix for 3 minutes (if you can stand the racket!).
  • Add cream and vanilla; blend/pulse just enough to mix it in .
  • This makes 1 1/2 cups and is best served warm.
  • Store leftover honey butter in fridge. Reheat for just a few seconds in the microwave--do NOT boil!
