Intro: How to Make German Pancakes
A secret recipe used mostly by German families. Many know it but only because it's just too good to keep to ourselves.
Step 1: Ingredients Required
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 1/2 cups milk
The order of the ingrediants don't matter, Just throw them all together and mix well. No lumps should be visible. Using a fork to stir is more effective to make the batter smooth.
Step 2: Cooking
get a stick free pan and spray it with oil or use canola oil. It is debatable that the oils make a difference. Spraying is cheaper and less fattening but canola oil gives it a sweeter taste. Pour a little batter into the pan like normal pancakes. The pancakes should be much thinner than normal pancakes. The edges should get crispy and uneven. This makes a good pancake. Cook it to the darkness that you like, then flip it over and continue cooking. Both sides look completely different from each other when they are done cooking. Let cool. Unlike normal pancakes, butter is not added. It ruins the taste. Put on syrup or eat plain, both are acceptable.
Step 3: Eating
Forget the butter, just put it on a plate and stick it in your mouth.
