Puffy Oven Pancakes? What On Earth Are They? In A Word? Delicious

Berry Syrup Coated Puffy Oven PancakesAlso known as the German oven pancake, Puffy Oven Pancakes come by their name honestly. They are so fun to watch bake! They puff up to about twice the size of the pan you cook them in! So make sure you don’t have a rack too close above your pan, or it might get messy. Delicious and easy to make, everyone comes for breakfast when puffy oven pancakes are on the menu. It is so popular, in this house, that I have made it a tradition to bake this for my family every Sunday morning.

For Puffy Oven Pancakes Fresh Ground Whole Wheat Wins

Puffy Oven Pancakes ComparisonThis recipe works great with fresh ground wheat! It bakes well and tastes delicious. One morning for breakfast, I actually made two different batches, one with store bought white flour and one with fresh ground hard white wheat. I gave each person at the table a piece of each kind, and everyone said they preferred the one made with fresh ground flour! Couple that with the many benefits of grinding your own wheat flour and I label that a big win.

You can make this recipe with whole eggs, or if you prefer something with a less of an egg taste (or less cholesterol), you can use just egg whites.

I like to top it with the berry syrup that I posted last week. It complements puffy oven pancakes perfectly.
