The pancake is a nice departure from traditional pancakes. The Buttermilk Sauce is particularly good. My family uses this sauce on pancakes and waffles as well.

What a Dish!

Awesome!! I've made German pancakes before but never with a sauce this good! It was caramel-like and delicious. I did reduce the sugar to 1 cup (still very sweet!) and cut down on the butter by 2 TB. The directions say to use a small saucepan, but I used a medium one, and it was just a few centimeters from boiling over! So use a large one. I will use this sauce for other things!



This recipe is quite 'different', to say the least. We found the sauce tasty, but way too sweet and rich for our taste.
