This is a very good recipe. However, there are a few things that people don't understand about puffed oven pancakes. They don't really taste a lot like griddle pancakes. They have a more eggy texture and flavor, so if you don't like eggs, don't try this recipe. One suggestion, this recipes calls for too much butter. I only added two tbs. and I baked it in a glass pan. This allowed the pancake to get crispy on the top and bottom. More butter can be added after it is baked (if desired).Read More

Wow, this is great! My husband said this is definately a keeper. I agree :) I used only 3 eggs, thinking it was going to taste too eggy, but it didn't next time I will use 4. I also added 2 tsp of vanilla extract and 2 TBS of brown sugar. Very scrumptious!
This is a european style oven pancake most often referred to as a German style oven pancake (basically it is a big thick crepe. My whole family loves this one and there are a couple pick eaters in the mix. I have made several of this type in the past and what makes this simple recipe the best is the cinnamon. Top it with whatever you like. Anything from pancake syrup to berries. Very easy prep, even kids can do it.
I love how people say, "Well, this recipe wasn't the best..." and then proceed to list all the things they changed until the recipe wasn't even recognizable as the original. Sigh. THIS WAS AWESOME! Kids wanted pancakes this morning but we have 7 of them and it takes ALL morning to cook enough for all. This is the PERFECT solution! They all LOVED it and it was so quick and easy! Thanks for posting - it's a keeper for sure
I wasn't blown away by these, but my diabetic husband loved it. I used splenda & my homemade pumpkin pie spice. A lot less butter. Whole Wheat instead of AP and I added in about 2 heaping T of both ground flax & wheat germ. Didn't use the confectioners sugar. Topped it with strawberries, sugar free syrup & pan toasted pecans. He loved it & was thinking of other fruit combos to eat on top.
This was fun to make and really easy. I think a touch of salt added to the batter would be just the thing to bring out all the flavour and make it 5 stars. After blending up the batter and putting it in the pre-heated pan, I blended up some wild blueberries with maple syrup and a bit of sugar, and then warmed that up for a sauce.
Delicious, rich oven pancakes that taste like non-sweetened custard. The second time I made these I doubled the sugar so they could be eaten on thier own with no syrup.
I'm glad I went with other reviews and used half the butter. I made a few small changes. added half tsp vanilla, did 2tbl white sugar with 2tbl brown sugar, then used half white flour and half wheat flour and it came out perfect. This is quick and easy and I'll definitely make it again!
super good pancake, I have made oven pancakes before but this was much better. The pancake here was a little thicker (custard like)which was nice for a change. I added 1tsp of cinn. just because i like it, also added ? about 1/4 tsp of almond extract. Thanks for the recipe.
My husband adores german pancakes, andhe loved this recipe. I hate eggs and I really liked it, too. It was more like a bread pudding, next time I will probably split it between two cake pans and see how that turns out. I preferred it with some vanilla, and then sprinkled liberally with lemon juice and powdered sugar. Yum!
Made it twice already and everone loved it. I used borwn sugar, added vanilla, and nutmeg.
This was very good. My whole family loved this one. So much so that I will have to double the recipe each time that I make it. I did take the advice of other reviews and used less butter. I only used 2 T and it was plenty. I also added 2 tsp vanilla and 2 T brown sugar per the advice from another review. Since there was white sugar and brown sugar, I just completely omitted the confectioners' sugar. I will be making this often. It was really good.
Amazing...loved it...used Stevia...and egg whites...and added 1T vanilla...and baked it with 1C fresh blueberries!!!
This recipe is so simple. Absolutely delicious ~ the kids all asked for seconds!!! I did reduce butter to 1/4 cup.
A little too buttery for me, but overall a yummy, easy recipe. I added vanilla to the mix, and we were out of cinnamon, so I used Pampered Chef's Mocha Hazelnut Sprinkle in its place.
Absurdly greasy and very thick...nearly inedible. If I made this again I would use half the butter and a much larger pan.
Very tasty. I used 3 eggs, 1/4 cup butter, and whole wheat flour, but followed everything else. I couldn't get mine to puff up though. Maybe I overmixed it? It was like the texture of french toast vs a bread pudding...which is what I liked. Either way, I'll definitely be making this again. The boyfriend enjoyed it too.
Sooo easy and quite delicious! Only change I would make is to cut back on the butter to 1/4 cup. Thanks for a great pancake!
I have tried several variations of this recipe because I like the idea of an oven pancake. This is my favorite of those recipes. Doesn't need so much better but works just fine with it. Can be topped with anything, I prefer syrup to confectioners' sugar. This is the one that went into my recipe box. Compared to other similar recipes this one has less eggs and this makes for a fluffier consistency that I prefer. Now a weekly staple at my house, everyone loves it.
According to my husband this was "addicting" though my kids would rather have regular pancakes. I added some brown sugar to the mix (not sure how much). After baking I cut it into dunkable pieces and served it with little cups of syrup and preserves. The family had fun experimenting with the different flavors. Quick and easy, it'll be a go to on those rainy Sundays when I don't feel like doing much, thanks for the recipe!
pretty good but overly eggy. Kids didn't like it because of that.
Easy recipe, very easy preparation and excellent outcome. Was so tasty that we devoured the whole thing. We ate it with raspberries and strawberries on top and a bit of whipped cream. Paired it with eggs and hash browns. Will definitely be making this again, and again and again. I made the recipe as indicated with the exception of the butter... I reduced the butter to 1/4 cup, and could have done with a bit less.
Loved this, and it turned out perfect..
This was so easy. I even added some vanilla to the egg, flour, and milk batter!! It was delicious!
I loved this recipe so did my day home kids and my own. I omited the confection sugar and added a can of mixed fruit and it was so good just added a bit of baking time so that it absorbed so of the juices
It was ok, but kind of tasted like bland french toast, and I added brown sugar, vanilla, and topped with syrup Quick and easy and edible in any case.
Although, it was not pancake texture, my husband loved it and reminded me that with apples it would be identicle to the "Big Apple" served at a famous breakfast chain restaurant. My 10 yr old didn't like it. I added vanilla and a little sugar in the blender. WILL make it again, maybe with fruit topping!
Back when our eldest was little, we used a recipe identical to this only titled "Dutch Oven Babies". Sadly, we lost the recipe and went many years greatly deprived until one day I happened upon this one. This version is just as awesome and delicious as we remember from all those years ago. I changed nothing in the recipe, making it as is. I *love* the cinnamon/sugar on top of it. And yes, I also found this recipe to be very good with my blood sugars. Yay!
Big hit in my house, a little more "eggy" tasting than french toast but wow, loved it! added 2 tbsp brwn sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp nutmeg. used only 1/4 cup butter - it was plenty. easy sunday morning treat and yummy!
These were really good! I did cut the butter to 1/4 cup and added 2 t. vanilla extract. YUM YUM!
So easy! Different! I used 1/4 butter also.
Delicious and super easy. The cinnamon and sugar make a nice crust. I used 3Tbs butter as others suggested and it was perfect amount. My husband who is of british descent thought it looked like a giant yorkshire pudding but the taste was totally different.
This is becoming our "day after a holiday" breakfast. I reduced the butter to 3 T and also added a tsp of vanilla.
I did a lot of changes to this recipe but the end result was delicious! I used 1/4 cup butter as previous reviewers suggested. I used whole wheat flour, brown sugar, 3 eggs plus 1 banana, and added 1 tbsp ground flax seed to the topping. My kids loved it!
I thought it was really good. Needs a little more flavoring so syrup tastes great with it. The cinnamon topping is delicious and I also used only 2 tablespoons of butter
This is a really great recipe. I did take other's reviews into consideration and cut the butter down to 1/4 cup, I actually think it could be cut down a little more (maybe to 2 or 3 tablespoons?) and still be great. I also didn't use the powdered sugar. I paired this with some extra crispy bacon, strawberries and blackberries, a little drizzle of caramel and a few drops of Valentina hot sauce! It sounds weird but believe me, the mixture of salty, sweet and spicy is amazing!
So good! And SOOO easy to make! I didn't change a thing and they came out perfect.
Way easier than traditional pancakes! I'm terrible at flipping so this is a dream. They taste delicious too. I would be hard pressed to go back to regular pancakes after these. Mmmmmmmm! I added Vanilla too.
Doubled it, did not have confec. sugar and it was still really yummy. My family ate it so fast! Even tastes good cold!
I loved that this was quick and easy. I saved time, and eggs making breakfast today! I thought about putting vanilla in it, and should have. Next time, I will start putting some fruit in it or something savory. I'll be making this often!
My son & I weren't looking forward to having cereal or bagels again and I remembered this recipe...couldn't believe how quick and easy it was! We topped it with strawberries and blueberries and my picky son LOVED it! I'm wondering if the recipe can be doubled or tripled? I think this would be great for my big family for Christmas brunch or the Teachers at school for Teacher Appreciation Day. I will be making this again and again.
Easy to make, but I agree with the people who said it was too "eggy." I took the advice of others and used 1/4 c butter and it was still too much. I will not make again.
When I was cutting this up for my kids this morning, it seemed to be a custardy, french-toast kind of pancake. I used lowfat buttermilk, half whole wheat and Splenda. I didn't use all the butter called for, just a couple tablespoons was sufficient. I think if I'd used more, it would have been swimming in fat. I spooned Supreme Strawberry Topping over the top (also made with Splenda) and a little bit of FF whipped topping. My kids flipped for it. I again was a rockstar mom. And it literally took minutes this morning. This one's a keeper.
This was YUMMY!! Love it
These are just like the ones my mother used to make although she called them Dough Babies. I did cut the butter down when mixing and then when it came out basted the top with butter. It was wonderful. Thank you I've been looking for this for YEARS since my mother passed away.
My experience with this recipe was a comedy of errors, but even with everything that went wrong, it still came out tasting very good and with the texture described by other reviewers. I tried this recipe because I was lazy and out of pancake mix. I put the 1/3 cup butter in the oven then discovered I only had 2 eggs in the fridge, so I halved the milk & flour to compensate. I eyeballed vanilla, brown sugar, white sugar & cinnamon. I fumbled the cake pan as I placed it in the oven, spilling half the mixture onto the oven floor. I baked it until the spilled part smoked then moved the pan to the microwave, covering with plastic wrap for 5min on 50%. It came out exactly as others described. While I wound up not caring for the texture, the recipe is awesome. Use it if you are looking for a bread pudding-type texture. Delicious flavor. Have fun. :-)
Very easy to make and tasty with warm syrup and sausage.
Quick and easy, but a little bland and eggy for my family. Would probably be good with a fruit topping.
I love this recipe! It tastes like fluffy French Toast. All I add is nutmeg and vanilla, because that's the way my man enjoys it. He is sooo right! (Don't tell him I said that :)
My mother used to make an oven pancake as a treat growing up, so I was excited to try out this recipe. It did not disappoint, we thoroughly enjoyed it Easter morning. As mentioned in other reviews, I used a little less butter than called for, and I think I could have gone with even less, probably closer to 1/4 cup. The Cinnamon sugar mixture on top was great. I will make this again for sure.
soo yummy. Very easy. Would only try and use less sugar and butter maybe add nuts
This was delicious! Easy to make and the kids gobbled it up. I added a little bit of brown sugar with the sugar cinnamon mixture. It looked like a work of art!
Was not all what I was expecting. Too eggy for me, wanted it to be more pancake like.
Use half the butter, but otherwise this recipe is great, fast, and so easy. Very filling and delish. I made mine in a 9" silicon baking form, ontop of a cookie sheet just in case, and it worked out fine. Will be making this again.
I'm sorry to say but this recipe ended up being a complete disaster for me. My boyfriend doubled the ingredients because he figured this would only be big enough for one person. 4 eggs for one person, or 8 eggs for too people is a lot and not good for you. It also had way too much butter and the entire pancake was floating in liquidy butter which made it crispy on top but mushy on the inside. I am also very sorry to say that we could not eat it. It tasted nothing like a pancake but more like a very thick omelette and very buttery.
This was a quick and easy recipe that my whole family loved! I read the previous reviews and cut back the butter to 1/4 cup I also added 2 Tbs of brown sugar and 2 tsp of vanilla to the batter. I put fresh strawberries on top that I had prepared by slicing and adding about 1/3 cup of sugar and letting them sit to produce a strawberry "sauce". My youngest son LOVED them and kept asking for more! Great recipe!
Delicious! An instant favourite:)
This looks beautiful coming out of the oven! I doubled the recipe & made it in a 9" x 13" pan. I only used 1/2 cup butter (instead of 2/3) and 1/4 cup sugar. It's somewhat crepe-like...a little heavier than your typical pancakes. We like to eat this with syrup. When you pour the batter onto the butter, some of the butter will get on yop of the batter. That's fine as it makes the edges a little brown & crispy. If you like crepes, give this recipe a try!
not that great, to eggy for my taste, the texture was mushy, would probably not make it again.
This recipes tasted really good, but it wasn't the "pancake texture" I was hoping for. It reminded me more of a bread pudding. I may try it again, but with one less egg.
"Can I have more..." was heard throughout the kitchen. I would specifiy that it is imperative to use UNSALTED butter. We are already sensitive to salt but the first thing we tasted was salt. It was easily masked with syrup, however. Overall, I'm sure we will make this again and again.
This is a recipe that everyone in the house enjoys.
MMMMMM! I use a little extra Sugar & cinnamon, & topped it with strawberries, blue berries, & raspberries.
Loved this! So did my kids!! it was quick and easy!!
I went into this without any expectations and was pleasantly surprised. This was unlike anything I have ever had for breakfast. I followed the directions as stated but next time I will cut back a little on the butter. It was good with syrup over it. I will make this again as a treat occasionally.
Wonderful. My husband made these for breakfast and everyone enjoyed. Will make again. So easy, good for guests.
Essentially these are flavored popovers, they're quite tasty but as other reviewers have mentioned, these do not taste like a traditional Pancake. Infact, they really shouldnt be called Pancakes at all, considering the name itself means that you are making a cake in a stovetop pan. All and all a nice mulitpurpose baked good.
This was really good! I think the butter called for is a tad to much. Next time I will probably scale back to 1/4 C. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla and about 2 TBL of brown sugar to the bottom of the pan with the butter. I then added the batter and it was yummy! I love the added flavor the brown sugar gave! My 2 little girls loved it! My husband thought it was ok. He was not thrilled at the custard texture but he said he would eat it again. Overall great recipe. Thanks!
Turned out pretty much how I expected. Very good! I added a little vanilla and about 1/4 tsp. of salt, maybe a little less. The amount of butter was perfect.
I was wanting pancakes this morning, but had no baking powder in the house. I found this recipe and even though it's not a "pancake" in the traditional sense, it was wonderful - reminded me alot of french toast and bread pudding - will DEFINATELY make it again!
I added 1/2 tsp salt and 2 tbsp sugar to the batter, then sprinkled the cinnamon sugar over top. It was great with honey, and hubby said it tasted like french toast and loved it!
My family loved this recipe and it was so simple to make. This is a recipe that I will definetely make again and again.
didn't turn out puffy and my family didn't like it. however they are picky eaters. didn't know that the oven pancakes were so eggy either.
this was pretty good,next time i will only use maybe 1/4 cup of butter.I also added some vanilla,i will add some sugar and cinnomon into the batter next time as well.
Very good I added a little bit of vanilla. I would use a lot less butter (it came out almost dripping) but overall quite good.
This reminded us more of a huge popover than a pancake. My family really enjoyed it. I took the suggestion of other reviewers and added vanilla (1 tsp) and sugar (1 tbsp) to the batter. We will be making this again. Thank you for the recipe!
Made it just theway the recipe says and it is awesome!!! My whole family loves it when I make this for breakfast
My favorite recipe of this type! I added a tsp of vanilla, used brown sugar instead of white and threw in some cinnamon for good measure. It did stick to my pan so I will spray with PAM next time. Delicious and beautifully impressive as well!
I thought that this recipe was delicious! This is definetly a recipe for an egg lover! It is a great variation on eggs. The name is a little misleading but it was still great!
These have become a staple at my house. We have doubled, tripled and quadripled the recipe - the only thing to watch is that you really beat those eggs. We have nick-named these Papa's hat because when done in a round dish, it resembles a sombrero. We usually skip the lime juice.
This was really good! Exactly what I was after. I added a little vanilla and nutmeg to the batter and used a little less butter than it called for, and it turned out just right.
i added 3 more Tablespoons of flour and 2 teaspoon vanilla. Next time I will add apple and brown sugar and maybe a crumb topping. It was a lot of butter but we liked it.
This tastes very much like french toast without the bread. It was delicious with honey drizzled over the top.
I was really excited about trying this recipe. Unfortunately me and my family hated it. None of us are bread pudding fans. I should have read the reviews before trying this recipe.
This recipe was a big hit in my house but I did make a few additions to the recipe. I added syrup to the melted butter in the pan, just enough to coat the bottom and then added 4 tsp. of brown suger (I mixed it all together) then poured the batter over that.
Simply amazing! It doesn't get easier than this. I did almost everything "wrong" and still got perfect results. I don't have a cast iron skillet. I baked my in a large round ceramic baking dish. I didn't warm the ingredients first. I finished the batter before the oven was ready so it sat for several minutes. It still came out perfect. The presentation is beautiful. It looks like you have been slaving away. My mother absolutely loves the "dutch baby" from the Original Pancake House. This is a total knock off. It was awesome to be able to make this for her over the holidays. She said she liked mine even better than the restaurants. Thanks for the recipe!
My family loves loves loves this recipe!!! I double the recipe and bake in a 9x13 pan for full fluffy delicious pancake. I also serve with strawberry sauce and home-made whipped cream. This recipe is perfect for making with my 9 year old son. Literally, neighbors, friends and family come out of the woodwork on Oven Pancake Day!
This is ok for what it is. Exceptionally easy to feed a crowd for breakfast all at the same time without standing over the griddle cooking while everyone else is eating. Overall I would say this is more egg-y than a pancake. Reminded me of Yorkshire pudding. I agree that 1/3 cup of butter is not needed, 2-3 Tbs was enough.
Reduced butter to 1/4 cup only because it works out to 1/2 stick (easy to measure). Added some sugar and vanilla to the batter based on other reviews. No need for a blender, works just as well with a bowl and wire whisk.
The only thing this shares with a pancake is the ingredients. It's an entirely different texture—kind of like a baked custard, very eggy and dense, sweet but not overly so. The family liked it but didn't love it; I loved the ease of preparations.
These were so wonderful! My whole family was so shocked at how good they were! I think they didn't need as much butter next time I make them. Also, I might try to add some blueberries. Amazing recipe!
It's good! Quick and easy recipe that feeds about 4-5 adults. Has more of a French toast taste with a crunchy 'crust' and moist center. I took some advice from the previous reviews and used 2 Tbsp of butter. Goes great with fruit. Thank you AR-members for being accurate on the rating.
This is the closest to Walker's Brothers German Pancake that I have found. Great love it!! Thanks
I halved the recipe and used a small skillet. Added cinnamon & sugar to the pan butter. Tastes like a combination French toast & Pancake and we love both! Puffed up well but the center was a tad mushy and flat. Going to play with the different oven temps used in other "Dutch Baby" recipes. We look forward to trying different fruit fillings for the center. Will probably never make pancakes again! It's a keeper.
I have made this MOST satisfying version of pancakes since discovering it over a year or so. I love the texture of the pancake. I usually double the recipe for a thicker pancake. I always serve it with a mixture of blueberries and strawberries with a drizzle good Ole Canadian Maple Syrup. YUMMY!
I really like this recipe! My kids love it! It is like bread pudding, but for breakfast.
This was very good. I didn't know what to expect, but it came out very good. Per other reviews, I took out 1 egg and used much less butter. I also added some vanilla extract and some brown sugar. I just like that combo in breakfast foods. It was pretty sweet, especially with added syrup. But my husband, who has a big sweet tooth loved it. So it passes with flying colors.
I just made this and am really pleased with the recipe. This reminds me of egg custard pie minus the crust and not nearly as sweet. I did not use all of the sugar or the conf sugar. Really nice and quick. This could be turned into a dessert with a couple of adjustments. A keeper for sure
sooo good! even my son liked it. very custardy and i used pancake mix instead of flour.
