German Pfannkuchen

German Pfannkuchen

These German pancakes – which are also known as Eierkuchen in certain parts of the country – are a versatile sweet or savoury treat. They’re thick and filling, and can be served with apple, sugar, and cinnamon for a twist on a traditional favourite.

Jasmine from Jasmine Simone took inspiration from German lifestyle blogger The German Mom to create these traditional pancakes, which she serves with cream, sugar, and maple syrup.



  • - 2 eggs
  • - 2 tbsp. plain flour
  • - 90ml milk
  • - Splash vanilla extract



Put a frying pan over a medium heat, and whisk the eggs and milk together. Add the flour and stir into the mixture until a batter is formed.

Add a little oil to the pan, then pour one ladle of the batter into the pan. Fry until golden on one side, then flip to cook the other side.

Serve immediately.
