Easter Pancakes?

Never heard of them! So let me suggest, that you make these amazing German Pancakes –  Ofenpannkuchen – and then garnish them with easter treats.

I will try it out this easter, and let you know, how it turnes out.


Recipe (Danish version below)

Ofenpannkucken / German Pancakes


·         85g cold butter

·         6 eggs

·         225ml whole milk

·         125g wheat flour

·         1/2 tsp salt


1. Place a large oven-safe pan with the butter in a cold oven on the middle rack and heat the oven to 220C.

2. While the oven is heating, use an immersion blender to beat the eggs until bubbly, approximately 10 seconds. 

3. Add the flour and salt to the bowl, and blend. Add the milk, and blend until there are no more lumps.

4. Once the oven is heated, make sure the melted butter covers the bottom of the pan and pour the batter gently into the pan. Bake the pancake for 20-25 minutes.       

Serve the pancake with maple syrup, berries, and powdered sugar.

Ofenpannkucken / Tyske Pandekager


·         85g smør

·         6 æg

·         225ml sødmælk

·         125g hvedemel

·         1/2 tsk salt


1. Stil et stort keramisk fad med smørret i en kold ovn på den midterste rille, og opvarm ovnen til 220C. 

2. Imens ovnen varmes op, piskes æggene med en stavblender indtil bobler dannes, ca.10 sekunder.

3. Tilsæt mel og salt, og blend. Tilsæt mælk og blend dejen, til der ikke er flere klumper.

4. Når ovnen er opvarmet, så sørg for at det smeltede smør dækker bunden af fadet, og hæld dejen forsigtigt i. Pandekagen bages i 20-25 minutter.

Server pandekagen med ahornsirup, bær og flormelis.
