Peaches n’ Cream German Puff Pancake

Peaches n’ Cream German Puff Pancake – These German pancakes are easy peasy, and so delicious! You’ll never go back to “normal” pancakes!!

Peaches n' Cream German Puff Pancake

My mother called these “puffy oven pancakes”. I’ve heard about forty other variations but I really like to call them German puff pancakes. Has a nice ring to it. I think it has something to do with putting the name of a European country in the title.

Makes it easier to imagine I’m eating this breakfast on the wrap-around porch of a cottage.

Or something quaint like that.


These pancakes are really, really, really good. You know it’s gotta be good when the husband not only remembers it days later, but continues to request a repeat two weeks in a row.

Can I add that these are easy easy easy? I may change the name to EASY Peaches n’ Cream German Puff Pancake. Except that’s a mouthful. And I really would rather have a mouthful of this pancake. So the name stays.

such gorgeous pics!

I just introduced the puff pancake to my boys, but we’ve been sticking to berries and powdered sugar for toppings. Peaches and cream would be amazing! Love your blog.

it looks yummy!

This looks incredible! 🙂

Love this! We call it hootenanny! 🙂

    Ha!! I just might have to change the name cause that’s wayyyy more fun to say. Thanks Karly!! 🙂

I really love this recipe, must try it soon! But I also have to add, that I’m German, and I’ve never seen anything like this before haha. The actual German ‘pancake’ is more related to a crepe, but not as thin, and then we fill it and roll it up. But anywho, still looks amazing!

    Ha! Isn’t that funny how foods get labeled the most random things?! I wonder where that even came from… Maybe it’s actually Dutch, like a Dutch baby pancake? Or maybe that one is totally off the wall too… either way though, it’s so delicious! It’s probably just got “German” in the name because German food is known to be so dang delicious!! I think I’m gonna have to find a recipe for the REAL German pancakes you mentioned!!

This looks so delicious, I’ve never had a puff pancake but now I need to try one!

Five star recipe! The family loves it, the husband says it easily beats pancakes. Thank you!

Bit late to this party.
We make a variation where butter, brown sugar and peaches are in the casserole in the oven and pour the batter over. Serve it flipped so buttery-peachy- syrupy goodness is on top- less deflating.

Made this tonight…AWESOME! We loved it and will make it again for sure!
