German Pancakes, Dutch Baby’s, Lazy Panckes, Yorkshire Pudding What Are They
Many moons ago a friend shared her “lazy pancake” recipe with me. I later found out that it was a twist on a Yorkshire pudding but at the time I never put two and two together. I had tried a Yorkshire when I was young and thought it was odd to have with meat. However the first time I had a lazy pancake I was IN LOVE!!
Now I have decided, I love all of them no matter what you call them but one thing I know for sure THEY ARE NOT German Pancakes!!!! Yet everyone across the blogging and instagram world keep calling them that. German Pancakes are more like Swedish Pancakes thin almost like crepes.
After hubby and I moved to Oregon we went to a pancake house called Original Pancake House, where the invention of the Dutch Baby was born. It is like a cross between Yorkshire pudding and apple turnover.
They look like this;
Personally they are not my favorite, they are overly sweet and kinda mushy; horrible mouth feel to me. Like an under baked bread pudding. They almost look like an apple fritter but I promise you, not even close. One day I’m sure I will try and perfect it but for now, I will stick with fast and easy 👍💕
You don’t really have to be a pancake lover but you will have to like crepes and custard to truly enjoy these crazy fun pancakes. That may look like a Yorkshire pudding but I promise you are not. That would be like calling ice cream…gelato and one never wants to do that lol
Quick, easy, yummy crepe like oven baked pancake.
You will need:
1 cup of flour
2 cups of milk
1 tbsp sugar
splash of vanilla and a dash of salt
Let’s do this:
Heat oven to 375 with baking dish or pan. Once hot; place your butter in hot dish. I like to use my cast iron skillet or cake pan or Pyrex glass dish. Now make pancake batter. Stay focused because you don’t want your butter to burn.
In a bowl whisk together eggs, flour and milk, vanilla and salt. Butter should be melted and pan should be hot…slowly pour batter in hot pan. I personally have never had a problem with my Pyrex but I do prefer hot cast iron because most of the time my milk and eggs are really cold.
Bake for 20-25 minutes depending on your oven, do not open the door while baking. The sides will start to crawl up and the middle will look like yellow custard. Dust with powder sugar and eat. This can also be served at room temperature but is will lose its magic. Enjoy oxox MsFoodie.com

- Oven should be at 375 now place your chunk of butter in pan and wait for it to fully melt. This should only take about 1-2 mins so do not walk away.
- Once melted, slow and steady pour your batter in screaming hot pan with melted butter. Close oven door and walk away.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes depending on your oven, do not open the door while baking. The sides will start to crawl up and the middle will look like yellow custard. Squeeze some fresh lemon and dust with powder sugar, then eat.
