My mom tells the story of how when she and my dad were first married (she's German, he was an American GI stationed in Munich), he asked her to make him some pancakes. She knew only how to make German pancakes. When she put the plate in front of him, he looked at it, asked "What's this?" and ate them all. This is almost exactly the way my mom taught me to make German pancakes. When they are hot off the pan I sprinkle the inside w/cinnamon and sugar, roll them up and serve them with chilled canned peaches spooned over them. We eat these almost every Sunday as our evening meal.

if you have trouble flipping the pancakes, try running a toothpick around the outside of the pancake and using it to grab the pancake. Then you can use your fingers to flip it.

I love German pancakes and have looked for a recipe for them for ages. This is so easy that it is hard to believe how good they are. Remember though, the first pancake to be cooked has to be thrown away. (Really, it does!) When the pancake is cooked and put on the place, spread a little butter over it and then fold it over itself twice. Top with a little more butter, a squeeze of lemon juice, and a sprinkling of powdered sugar. Fantastic.
